A veteran SEC quarterback announced this morning that he’s decided to enter his name into the NCAA’s transfer portal.
Gunnar Hoak, a junior quarterback at Kentucky, announced on Twitter that he’s considering a transfer out of the Wildcats’ program.
The former three-star recruit said it’s possible he returns to UK, though he needs to think about his future.
“I need to see if there are any other options for me at this time in my career,” he announced.

Hoak, a Dublin, Ohio native, is graduating and will be immediately eligible for the 2019 season if he decides to transfer.
The pro-style quarterback could have serious interest from other programs, including Ohio State, which is lacking quarterback depth following Matthew Baldwin’s transfer. The Buckeyes are in need of a backup quarterback to Justin Fields and, if the former Georgia quarterback gets injured, there could be a path to major playing time.
Hoak has thrown for 167 yards and two touchdowns during his career.
