Danny Clark’s dad hints at a transfer

Clark came to Kentucky as a big-name prospect as a former Ohio State pledge.

Well, this isn’t good news.

Danny Clark’s father posted a tweet hinting that his son may be considering a transfer from the football program.

Clark is a redshirt freshman QB that was a four-star recruit coming out of high school. He’s yet to play a snap at the collegiate level as he currently sits at third string behind Terry “Touchdown” Wilson and Gunnar Hoak.

I love Clark and his potential, and I looked forward to the time that he took over as QB1 for the Kentucky Wildcats, but it appears we may not ever get to see that.

This is the tweet his dad sent out earlier today, sparking transfer rumors immediately tagging both Danny and his brother, Caden, who is currently a tight end commit for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Shortly thereafter, Clark deleted the tweet and shared the following video explaining the new Division I transfer rules.

It really sucks to see this happen right after such a huge win against Florida. Danny Clark is known to have a great relationship with his teammates and coaches.

And while it isn’t extremely surprising that Clark might be considering a transfer, seeing as he may not even see the field until his redshirt senior year, it seems like it’s incredibly bad timing. Not only is it coming after the Kentucky Wildcats snapped Florida’s 31-year win streak, but it comes the day before Clark will probably get some playing time against Murray State tomorrow.

No matter what happens, we will wish Danny the best, but I sure hope he sticks around.
