Kaiya Sheron to transfer

Kentucky is now losing its top three QBs.

Kaiya Sheron Dylan Ballard - A Sea of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats’ QB room is going to look vastly different next season.

Devin Leary has used his last year of eligibility, while third-stringer Destin Wade just entered the transfer portal alongside his brother.

In addition, walk-on Deuce Hogan tweeted he was entering the portal this week but has since deleted said tweet, so his status is unclear.

Now, Kentucky is losing its No. 2 QB of the last two seasons, as Kaiya Sheron is entering the portal, according to On3.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Sheron originally joined Kentucky as a 3-star class of 2021 recruit from Somerset (KY). His only other scholarship offer was from Marshall. He was Kentucky's No. 2 QB for the bulk of the 2022 season and all of 2023.

For his career, Sheron has completed 19/33 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns vs. one pick. He lost his only career start, which came last year when he started at home vs. South Carolina while Will Levis sat out due to injury. Kentucky would lose that game, 24-14.

As of now, walk-on Shane Hamm, a 2023 transfer from Dayton, is the only college QB set to be on the 2024 Kentucky Football roster, as he’ll join incoming 4-star recruit Cutter Boley.

Good luck to Sheron as he looks for a new college home.
