Kentucky Football will welcome a special guest this weekend when former Tennessee Volunteers offensive tackle Gerald Mincey arrives for a visit.

The former Volunteer entered the transfer portal just over a week ago (January 4th) and isn’t wasting any time exploring his options. In fact, he was initially visiting Ole Miss this weekend before changing itineraries and instead paying the Wildcats a visit.

This is not the first time Mincey has been linked to Kentucky, either.

When he was coming out of high school, Mincey committed to Kentucky for just over a month before signing with Florida (his home-state school). He would go on to play two seasons for the Gators before transferring to Tennessee for two more seasons.

This most recent year, Mincey played in all 12 regular season games with six starts at right tackle for Tennessee. His time on the field was quite impressive, too, only allowing two sacks in 512 snaps. The Volunteers also had one of the better offenses in the Southeastern Conference, including the top-ranked rushing attack behind Mincey and his fellow linemen.

Based on his play in 2023, Mincey has shown he can play both left and right tackle when needed. And standing at 6-foot-6 and 337 pounds, he would fit right in with the Big Blue Wall.
