Tennessee’s Gerald Mincey Transfers To Kentucky

Kentucky fans may have been under the impression that the transfer portal could potentially be slowing down for the Wildcats. Mark Stoops and company said not so fast my friends. Just recently, Kentucky got a huge transfer from multi-year Alabama player, Kristian Story. Now, Kentucky adds an instant starter on the offensive line in Gerald Mincey.

The Tennessee offensive tackle entered his name into the transfer portal just last week and immediately Kentucky was a name to watch with Mincey being formerly committed to the Wildcats back in 2019. However, he eventually decommitted from Kentucky and re-committed to the University of Florida out of high school. Gerald spent two years as a Florida Gator before entering the transfer portal the first time and landing in Knoxville.

The 6'6" 330-pound lineman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school where he had many of major offers. He was a redshirt junior this past season with the Vols where he played in all thirteen games, including their bowl game. Mincey also managed to start in 7 of those thirteen games. This may come as a little bit of a surprise to Tennessee fans because he more than likely would have been a consistent starter for Tennessee this upcoming season. Kentucky went in and regained a valuable player from their offense and got him to transfer. This is a huge get for Coach Stoops as he now has experience at both the left and right tackle spot and with him having two years of eligibility left that is another advantage.

This staff sure is killing it in the transfer portal this summer to compliment their recruiting class coming in, picking and pulling in assets from other programs and giving them a much larger opportunity here.
