Georgia Transfer and Highly-Touted Recruit QB Brock Vandagriff Commits to Kentucky

    Georgia transfer Brock Vandagriff -- a former four and five-star recruit -- has officially committed to the Kentucky Wildcats, giving them stability in 2024.

    The Kentucky Wildcats have once again added a presumed starting quarterback through the transfer portal, earning a commitment from Georgia passer Brock Vandagriff. Here’s what Vandagriff brings to Mark Stoops’ squad.

    Brock Vandagriff Commits to Kentucky as a Transfer QB

    Two days ago, Georgia QB Brock Vandagriff announced that he would enter the transfer portal via social media. Now, it’s been revealed that he’ll transfer within the SEC, heading to Kentucky to continue his college football career.

    Vandagriff was a highly-touted QB recruit in the 2021 cycle. He had high four-star billings from several outlets and was even viewed as a five-star talent in some corners.

    Vandagriff was a three-year starter at Prince Avenue Christian in Georgia, who — in his senior season — threw for over 4,000 yards, 46 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions while running for over 500 yards and 17 additional scores.

    Despite being the top dual-threat QB recruit in his class, Vandagriff saw little playing time in 2021 and 2022 while Stetson Bennett served as the Bulldogs’ starter. In 2023, Vandagriff was beaten out by 2020 recruit Carson Beck for the starting role.

    In relief of Beck, Vandagriff completed 12 of 18 passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 39 yards on five carries. Now, he’ll transfer to Kentucky to earn a full-time starting opportunity.

    Vandagriff will be the third QB to join Kentucky’s roster via the transfer portal since 2021. In 2021, Will Levis transferred to Kentucky from Penn State and used his two-year stint with the Wildcats to develop into a second-round pick by the Tennessee Titans.

    In 2023, the Wildcats added Devin Leary from NC State, who threw for 2,440 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in the regular season.

    With Leary being a sixth-year senior, Vandagriff should have a chance to earn the Wildcats’ starting role in the 2024 offseason. He’ll be able to deliver on his recruitment billing and will continue to be tested by SEC competition.

    The transfer portal makes any kind of offensive support uncertain, but so far, star WRs Barion Brown and Dane Key have not expressed a desire to move.
