The portal taketh and the portal giveth. Today, the portal taketh. Kentucky's Jordan Anthony has announced that he will enter the transfer portal.
"Thank you BBN," he said in his goodbye post. "I want to thank the Big Blue Nation for the love and the support that you guys have shown throughout this past year."
The Cats will go into their 2023 football season without the fastest player on their team. As a duel-sport athlete, the redshirt freshman earned Second Team All-SEC accolades under the Kentucky Track and Field program and broke the UK freshman record in the 60m (6.55).
Anthony played in two football games in his college career (Youngstown St. and Louisville) in which he recorded no statistics. Although fans were eager to see Anthony on the football field, it's worth mentioning that Anthony spent little to no time with the football team during the spring months as he was pursuing his track duties.
With a talented wide receiver room going into the 2023 season and a wide variety of schools looking for his flash, one could see why a change would feel necessary. The Cats are stacked at wide receiver, but in Anthony's case, the sky is the limit.
The Tylertown, MS native will have 4 years of eligibility left and will likely make a decision sooner rather than later with summer camp almost underway.
