Danny Clark, who was originally committed to Ohio State before eventually signing with Kentucky in 2017, is moving on once again. Clark announced his intention to transfer from UK this afternoon.

After redshirting in 2017, the 6-foot-2, 232-pound southpaw signal caller served as the third-string quarterback in 2018 for the Wildcats. He played in two games this season.

Clark did not throw a pass, but did carry twice for four yards, including his first career touchdown against Murray State.

"After thinking and praying about this for months, I have decided I will be furthering my education and my football career at a different school in 2019," Clark wrote on Twitter. "I have a lot to offer a team and I want to play for a school that fits my style of play more. Thanks to everyone for your support!"

Clark was the 15th-rated Pro-Style passer in the 2017 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Kentucky finished the 2018 regular season with a 9-3 record, its best regular season record since 1977.

The Wildcats are headed to a third-straight bowl game as they await their destination.
