The announcement comes just six days after the quarterback announced he was entering the transfer portal.
Gilmore arrived in Lexington as a three-star prospect in 2019. He chose the Wildcats over the Tennessee Volunteers. As a true freshman, he appeared in just one game as he took garbage time snaps in UK’s 50-7 victory over UT Martin.
North Texas is an FBS program that is a member of Conference USA. They’re coming off a 4-8 2019 season.
Gilmore is one of five Wildcats to enter the transfer portal since the conclusion of spring football.
