As a junior in 2016, Badet caught 31 passes for 670 yards and four touchdowns. In his three-year Kentucky career, Badet recorded 82 catches for 1,385 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Badet thanked Mark Stoops and the Kentucky coaching staff in his farewell post, but has yet to name a transfer destination.
Stoops also released a statement about Badet’s transfer:
"I appreciate Jeff & the contributions he made to the program during his time here. We wish him the best of luck in the future,"Stoops said.
