The transfer portal window is wide open, and players are starting to schedule visits to check out their potential new home for next season.
Now, there is a new name to add to the list of transfers set to visit this week.
Texas A&M transfer wideout Raymond Cottrell entered the portal back on Nov. 13th, and Kentucky has been considered an option since then.
On Tuesday, Cottrell announced on Twitter that he will be taking a visit to Lexington this coming weekend.
Cottrell, a 6-foot-2 and 203-pound receiver from Milton (FL), is a former 4-star prospect in the class of 2023. He chose the Aggies over offers from Georgia, Alabama, Miami (FL), Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and several others.
With only one season under his belt in College Station, Cottrell only caught one pass for A&M this season, which was a 13-yard touchdown reception.
Currently, Cottrell is ranked as the No. 21 overall player in the transfer portal at this time, according to the ESPN football transfer rankings. If his high school recruitment tells you much, this should also be a lengthy list of programs wanting to add the talented wide-out to their transfer class this offseason.
Cottrell will join All-Big Ten wide receiver and Indiana transfer Donaven McCulley as players visiting Kentucky this weekend.
Let’s see if Mark Stoops, Vince Marrow, and Liam Coen can land a key transfer at a position of need for next season.
