Cutter Boley announced his commitment to Kentucky on Thursday morning, but the good news didn’t stop there for the Wildcats.
Boley also announced he intends to re-classify from the class of 2025 to the class of 2024. That would land him in Lexington a year earlier than anticipated.
He also told reporters shortly after his commitment that he intends to be an early enrollee and officially join the program in January.
Cutter says he’ll enroll at UK in January.

Big pickup for the Cats… As excited as this makes me as a fan, I still pause when I realize nearly every SEC school consistently picks up *4 and *5 kids at QB every year out of HS. So really this is hoping Boley is as good as advertised and the Cats can stop 100% relying on the portal for a starting QB every year. And huge benefit he’s reclassified to 2024 and will be available for Spring practice and workouts. Honestly, the kid could be a starter as a freshman, and that’s a little disconcerting. Either way, the Cats got the QB of the future in place. Now let’s build on that and get a good class together for next year!
The expectation is for him to redshirt. He’s a high 4 star, but he needs some development time, as his footwork is less than stellar which leads to accuracy issues. He’s got a gun and has gotten by with his superior athleticism, but UK will get another portal mercenary to start next year and Cutter vs Wade to fight it out for 2025 starter.
I know he wants to compete for the starting job out of the gate, but my heart is saying a redshirt will be the best thing for him and his career. Fans would be quick to forget he’s a freshman out there that will make freshman mistakes no matter how good they are. The SEC is full of players headed for the NFL and it’s a grinding man’s league. Regardless if it’s next year or he red shirts, I love this kid and his work ethic and I’m glad he chose to represent the Cats and this great state of Kentucky.
Agreed. I kind of feel sorry for whoever wins the starting job in 2024 with him on the pine. Every loss the calls for Cutter to start will get louder, then the coaches have to walk the tightrope of he’s not good enough yet, but don’t want to be too emphatic, so as not to hurt his confidence.
The coaches usually get some pretty good QB recruits, but they don’t pan out because of transfers or injuries. We have had some terrible luck with QB injuries in the recent past.
One of the best parts of getting this kid that is that there was no mention anywhere of him even considering Loserville. Little brother loses again. Get f___ed, Linebeard U. Dirty commuter school.
I thought the exact same thing…. Let’s hope Boley’s early commitment can help shape this into a top 15 class
He’s the real deal. From Vince himself.. Only think positive thoughts my friends..
He’s not coming to UK to redshirt..
