Another one bites the dust. Thursday Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Amani Gilmore became the fifth Wildcat since Friday to enter the transfer portal. 

Gilmore arrived in Lexington as a three-star prospect from Amite, La, in 2019. He served as UK’s fourth-string quarterback behind Terry WilsonSawyer Smith and Walker Wood.

With the arrival of Beau AllenNik Scalzo healthy and Kaiya Sheron coming to town in 2021, there was no clear path for Gilmore to become the Wildcats starting quarterback.

Gilmore joins 2019 teammates Marvin ‘B.J.’ Alexander, Drew Schlegel, Cavon Butler, Davoan Hawkins in the transfer portal.
