The Kentucky Wildcats might not be as prolific in the transfer portal as some other teams, including archrival Louisville, but that hasn’t stopped coach Mark Stoops’ team from landing some high-profile talent.
This past season, the Cats were led by quarterback Devin Leary, who came to Lexington after four years at North Carolina State, and running back Ray Davis, who transferred from Vanderbilt and posted his second consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season.
Kentucky sports betting sites list the Wildcats at +25000 in national championship odds.
Now that we’re three years into the new college football offseason system of the transfer portal, BetKentucky.com utilized On3.com’s Transfer Portal Team Rankings from 2022 to 2024 to find the programs that have used it the best over the past three offseasons. (The 2024 rankings are listed as of Jan. 10).
Most Successful Portal Programs
Kentucky betting apps list Georgia as the early national championship favorite at +375. Ohio State is second at +600, and Alabama is third at +800 despite the Wednesday retirement of coach Nick Saban.
Bulldog, Buckeye Become Wildcats
This past month, Kentucky has landed a couple of players from marquee programs to replace Leary and Davis.
Brock Vandagriff was a reserve the past two seasons at Georgia, but now the former four-star recruit will go to Lexington with designs of following Leary and Will Levis as the signal caller. On3.com rated the former Bulldog as the No. 10 quarterback in the portal after playing in mop-up action in eight games last season.
FanDuel Kentucky, one of seven licensed Kentucky sports betting apps, has Vandagriff as a longshot on its Heisman Trophy futures board for next season. He’s one of nine players with odds of +12000.
Next season, former Ohio State running back Chip Trayanum will join Vandagriff in the Wildcats backfield. After playing two seasons for Arizona State, Trayanum moved to Columbus for the 2022 season. Last fall, he was second on the Buckeyes with 373 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
