  Former Western Hills High School star Wan'Dale Robinson is coming home. The 2018 Mr. Kentucky Football announced Friday he is transferring from Nebraska to Kentucky. Robinson, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound do-everything receiver, initially committed to UK as a senior at Western Hills in November 2018 but flipped to Nebraska just more than a month later. In his Monday announcement that he was entering the transfer portal, Robinson cited a desire to move closer to home because his mother was dealing with ongoing health complications following being hospitalized with COVID-19. Robinson appeared in eight games during the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season, catching 51 passes for 461 yards and one touchdown and rushing 46 times for 240 yards and one touchdown. - Courier Journal

  01/15/21 - Nik ScalzorFr/2024, Kentucky, 5-11, 178 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  The University of Kentucky football program's need to tap the transfer portal for a quarterback appeared to go away on Thursday. Nik Scalzo, a former three-star recruit who's spent the last two seasons with the Wildcats, entered the NCAA's transfer portal last week but has withdrawn his name from the portal, the school confirmed to the Herald-Leader. He will be permitted to rejoin the football team and will retain his scholarship. NCAA rules governing the transfer portal allow schools to reserve the right to refuse aid and/or spots on the roster if a player enters the portal and then later withdraws their name from the portal. UK head coach Mark Stoops and Scalzo came to an "unprecedented" agreement regarding his entry into the portal. - Herald Leader

  Kentucky backup quarterback Nik Scalzo has entered the transfer portal. Scalzo, who was one of three quarterbacks showcased in season three of the Netflix show QB1 during his senior year of high school, did not play for Kentucky this season while rehabbing a torn ACL. On Tuesday, Scalzo tweeted a highlight video of his work on the UK scout team in practice as evidence he has returned to full health.

A former three-star recruit, Scalzo was showcased by "QB1: Under the Lights" as a senior at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. His senior season ended with a torn ACL in the state playoffs. The day after the show aired on Netflix in Aug. 2019, Scalzo tore the ACL in his knee for a second time during a scrimmage during his first preseason camp at Kentucky. - Courier Journal

  01/06/21 - Terry WilsonrSr/2022, Kentucky, 6-2, 202 (DS#51 QB) + More +

  Kentucky football quarterback Terry Wilson is planning to use his extra season of eligibility but not at UK. Wilson served as Kentucky's starter for two full seasons and part of a third that ended early due to a knee injury. He led the Wildcats to wins at Florida, Tennessee and Louisville as well as bowl victories over Penn State and NC State as the starting quarterback. However, he was the target of frequent criticism as Kentucky's offense failed to develop a consistent passing game during his tenure. The Oklahoma native finishes his UK career with a 17-8 record as starting quarterback. He is the first player in program history with at least 3,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in his career. - Courier Journal

  Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson says he will enter the NCAA transfer portal for his final season of eligibility after leading the Wildcats to two bowl wins in three years. Wilson announced his intention to transfer in an Instagram post Monday night in which he thanked his Kentucky coaches and teammates. He helped Kentucky beat No. 24 North Carolina State 23-21 in last weekend's Gator Bowl to cap his comeback from a season-ending left knee injury in the second game of 2019. Two years ago, Wilson guided Kentucky past Penn State in the Citrus Bowl to complete a 10-win season, its first since 1977. - AP College Football

  Kentucky football's 2021 roster will feature a returning All-American. Right tackle Darian Kinnard announced Monday he will return to school for his senior season instead of entering the NFL draft. A former U.S. Army All-American recruit, Kinnard was a pivotal piece of the offensive line that helped pave the way for a UK offense that ranked fifth in the SEC in rushing yards per game (187.7). A third-team All-American according to the Associated Press, Kinnard has played in 32 games across the last three seasons with 24 consecutive starts at tackle. He graded out at 88% in 10 games this season with 40 knockdown blocks and 138 blocks at the point of attack, according to a UK news release. - Courier Journal

  At least four University of Kentucky seniors are returning to the football team for an additional season. Receiver Josh Ali, specialist Zach Johnson and tight end Justin Rigg all took to Twitter following UK's win over N.C. State to announce their intentions of playing one more year at Kentucky. They're taking advantage of an additional year of eligibility extended to all players by the NCAA in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Safety Davonte Robinson, a graduate of Henry Clay High School, also officially announced that he would return, though his account is private. Head coach Mark Stoops following UK's win over South Carolina suggested that Robinson would be returning to the program in 2021. - Kentucky.com

  01/03/21 - Kenneth HorseyrSo/2023, Kentucky, 6-2, 300 (DS#65 OG) + More +

  2020 MAYO CLINIC NATIONAL COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR WINNER: Kentucky offensive lineman Kenneth Horsey,...Horsey, who hails from Sanford, Florida, has a remarkable comeback story. In the spring of 2018, before he was to arrive at Kentucky for his freshman season, he was complaining of a pain in his side. His parents rushed him to the emergency room where doctors ultimately found a growth on one of his heart valves. He went through open-heart surgery on April 8, 2018 and was even told by a few doctors that football was over. However, Horsey would not be deterred.

He came to Kentucky and redshirted the 2018 season with a goal of earning a starting spot on Kentucky's offensive line, affectionately known as the "Big Blue Wall." In 2019, he saw action in four games and continued to train and prepare his body for the rigors of the Southeastern Conference. Since his surgery in 2018, he has lost 50 pounds and because of his hard work and dedication, has earned the starting left guard spot on the "Big Blue Wall." Even a broken left hand, which required surgery during pre-season camp, did not get in the way. He started in eight games played this season, helping the Wildcats rank fifth in the Southeastern Conference in rushing offense (187.4). - Kentucky Football

  A.J. Rose ran for a career-high 148 yards, Chris Rodriguez added 84 yards and two scores and Kentucky held off No. 24 North Carolina State 23-21 in a chippy TaxSlayer Gator Bowl on Saturday. Christopher Dunn missed two field goals for the Wolfpack (8-4), who trailed 16-14 late when Bailey Hockman threw his third interception of the game. Rodriguez scored on the ensuing play, going nearly untouched for 26 yards.

NC State got a final chance after Jordan Houston scored with 1:10 remaining. But Allen Dailey recovered Dunn's onside kick, and the Wildcats (5-6) ran out the clock. Coach Mark Stoops got a Gatorade bath following the team's third straight bowl victory, which ended a tumultuous season that included the loss of offensive line coach John Schlarman. - AP College Football

  12/29/20 - Darian KinnardJr/2022, Kentucky, 6-5, 345 (DS#4 OT) + More +

  Kinnard will play in this weekend's bowl game but is mulling a decision on whether to enter the NFL Draft. He was one of five underclassmen (the maximum allowed) on whose behalf head coach Mark Stoops solicited pre-draft evaluations from the league, and those official evaluations have not yet been sent back. UK and Kinnard remain in a stage of information-gathering at this point in the process.

"Darian's been very thorough," Stoops said Monday. "He's been trying to talk to as many people as he can. I've tried to get him as much information as I can...I believe Darian will lean heavily on that (NFL) information. I'm not sure. We've had talks. I'm not gonna constantly try to persuade Darian one way or another. My job is to get as much actual facts that I can from real people, from NFL people, and not people just telling him everything he wants to hear, because that's one of the problems that happens with juniors." - Herald Leader
