Kentucky quarterback Walker Wood announces his transfer from the program
Kentucky’s depth at quarterback got so bad last year that the Wildcats were forced to turn to receiver Lynn Bowden to play quarterback the second half of the season.
As it turns out, that desperation move proved to be a stroke of genius for Kentucky as Bowden emerged as one of the most explosive players in the nation and garnered legitimate Heisman Trophy hype by the end of the team’s 2019 run.
With Bowden off to the NFL, Terry Wilson, Saywer Smith and Nik Scalzo are all expected to return from injuries and with the offseason addition of Auburn transfer Joey Gatewood, who is seeking a waiver to play immediately next season in Lexington, all of a sudden, the Wildcats have a deep QB room.
Taking that into consideration, it’s no real surprise to see another QB leave the program as Walker Wood has announced he is headed to McNeese State to end his college football career.
“With all that being said, I’m also excited to announce that I’ve signed with McNeese State University to finish up my last two years of college,” Wood shared on social media Tuesday morning.
