Former Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson is still thinking about his time with the Wildcats.

Wilson moved on from UK earlier this offseason, landing with the New Mexico Lobos. But in an interview with this week, he said Kentucky is still home.

“I can’t wait to get back out there and visit,” Wilson told’s Josh Moore. “Kentucky is home. It’s funny, me and my girlfriend were just talking about it the other day, going through our memories on Snapchat, just looking. I definitely miss it.”

Wilson started for three seasons at Kentucky. In total, he completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,436 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Wilson was also a threat with his legs, rushing for 1,015 yards and 10 more touchdowns.

Another part of his Kentucky legacy is a pair of bowl victories in 2018 and 2020 over Penn State and North Carolina State, respectively.

But UK’s change in offensive philosophy and a group of up-and-coming quarterbacks led him to the transfer portal in search of a starting job for his final year of eligibility.

He complimented coach Mark Stoops for giving him the opportunity.

“I wasn’t getting pushed away or anything like that,” Wilson told Moore. “I really enjoyed playing for Coach Stoops. I like what he believes in. He’s a good man and he really takes care of his players. I’m glad he gave me an opportunity to come play for him.”

Wilson’s final SEC game in a Kentucky uniform was a good one. He completed 17-of-26 passes for 201 yards and rushed for a touchdown in a victory over South Carolina.

New Mexico opens its 2021 season on Sept. 2 against Houston Baptist.
