After losing four-star quarterback Jarren Williams of Georgia recently, Kentucky landed its quarterback in the 2018 recruiting class when three-star junior college quarterback Terry Wilson gave his verbal commitment to UK Sunday.
Wilson, who signed with Oregon out of high school, picked UK over Florida and Nebraska after a weekend visit at UK.
Last season at Garden City Community College he threw for 2,133 yards and 26 scores with 11 interceptions and ran for 518 yards and five touchdowns. He was the Jayhawk Conference Offensive Player of the Year award.
Wilson redshirted at Oregon in 2016 before transferring. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops indicated last week that he wasn’t sure if UK would add another quarterback after Williams changed his mind.
Wilson will compete with senior Drew Barker, sophomore Gunnar Hoak and redshirt freshmen Danny Clark and Walker Wood in spring practce
