Wednesday Headlines: Kentucky Football in the Transfer Portal Rankings

It’s been a big offseason for the Cats

NCAA Football: Kentucky at Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

After the season the Kentucky Football team had, I don’t think many fans expected this to be as busy of an offseason as it has been.

The Cats have been on fire and rank amongst the top 10 Transfer Portal destinations. 247 has them ranked 7th with an average 247 Sports rating per commit of 89.43.

Some of the more notable transfers include; 4-star Georgia QB Brock Vandagriff, 4-star Georgia LB Jamon Dumas-Johnson, 4-star Ohio State RB Chip Trayanum, and many more.

Mark Stoops staying at Kentucky turned out to be a huge boost, and it seems that Liam Coen has had a big impact in getting all of these offensive weapons on the squad.

The 15 Club, Kentucky’s NIL Collective, has also seen a lot of traction over the last two weeks, gaining over 1,000 followers on Twitter and several fans posting pictures of their donations.

The transfer portal season isn’t close to being over yet, so it’ll be interesting to see how it all rounds out for the Cats, but so far, it’s been great.
