Former Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson makes transfer decision
For the third time during his college career, Terry Wilson has found a new home via transfer.
The former starting quarterback for Kentucky ended his time in Lexington with a 17-8 career record — that win total ranks Wilson second in program history when it comes to starting quarterbacks behind only Andre’ Woodson — and after becoming the first Wildcat to have 3,000 passing yards (3,436) and 1,000 rushing yards (1,015) during his time with the program.
Now, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports!, Wilson will be finishing his college career with New Mexico.
“Sources: Former Kentucky QB Terry Wilson is finalizing a transfer to New Mexico. He went 17-8 as a starter at Kentucky. He’ll be immediately eligible and has one season remaining,” Thamel reported on Tuesday.
Wilson made the decision to leave Kentucky following the conclusion of the 2020 season. He was a senior leader for the team last fall but thanks to the NCAA giving all players the option of taking a free season of eligibility, Wilson has one season remaining to play college football.
Wilson originally came to Kentucky from Garden City Community College after signing with Oregon out of high school.
UPDATE: New Mexico has confirmed the addition of Wilson.
