Kentucky Wildcats Football: Cats May Add Grad Transfer

After an offseason where fans have seen Louisville take on any cast-off that college football had to offer, Kentucky may be in line for a transfer of their own. Former Kansas Jayhawks wide receiver Andrew Turzilli is a graduate transfer looking for a new home. After reports that he had chosen to return home to New Jersey and attend Rutgers, it looks like Turzilli may still be open.

Kentucky looks to be interested in adding the veteran for one year to add size and experience to a small, young receiver core. Turzilli has both, starting seven games last year and measuring in at 6’4”. He finished his Kansas career with 27 catches for 491 yards and two touchdowns. Some of the lack of production can be attributed to quarterback play in Lawrence. A three star recruit in high school, Turzilli is looking for a pass-happy offense to shine in for his final year of eligibility, that should be a feather in the Cats cap if they plan on heavily pursuing him. On the other hand, the draw of playing at home can’t be under estimated and Rutgers appears to be the leader for his services.
