Kentucky continues to be active in the transfer market, lands commitment from Michigan State receiver Tre'Von Morgan
It’s been a promising offseason for Mark Stoops’ program to this point as Kentucky has made a commitment to a complete shift on the offensive side of the ball, following the hire of LA Rams assistant coach Liam Coen to serve as the new offensive coordinator in Lexington, and have received commitments from several seniors eager to return for 2021 — thanks to the NCAA giving all players the option of taking a free season of eligibility in 2020.
In addition to those developments in Lexington, the Wildcats have also been very active in the transfer market to shore up positions of need within the football program.
On Monday, Kentucky landed its fifth transfer addition of the offseason as former Michigan State receiver Tre’Von Morgan announced his pledge to join the Wildcats.
Morgan’s commitment comes after Penn State quarterback Will Levis, Nebraska receiver/running back Wan’Dale Robinson, Georgia Tech defensive lineman Justice Dingle and Michigan State linebacker Luke Fulton all previously announced their decisions to transfer to Kentucky.
During his time at Michigan State, Morgan played in just two games, registering two catches for 46 yards and a touchdown. The 6-foot-6 Ohio native was rated as the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the state of Ohio in the 2019 recruiting cycle by Rivals and ESPN and the No. 2 wide receiver prospect by 247Sports.
The NCAA is expected to give all transfers the ability to play immediately this offseason, but if that doesn’t happen, Morgan will need a waiver to suit up for the Wildcats in 2021.
Should he take his free season of eligibility in 2020, Morgan will have four seasons to play in Lexington starting in 2021.
