Backup quarterback Gunnar Hoak out, Penn State graduate transfer Tommy Stevens in?
There’s at least an opportunity for it.
According to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic, the 6-foot-5 dual-threat quarterback will be visiting Kentucky starting tomorrow.

Going into 2019, Stevens was considered the favorite for the starting quarterback job at Penn State, but head coach James Franklin was hesitant to make it official this spring. The veteran dual-threat prospect dealt with a nagging foot injury, which led to surgery following the regular season. He was then limited through the spring.
Just days after the team’s annual Blue-White scrimmage, he decided to put his name in the transfer portal.
In three seasons at Penn State, Stevens has thrown for 304 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception, along with 506 rushing yards (6.7 yards per attempt) and eight touchdowns on the ground. Last season alone, the Nittany Lion grad transfer completed five of seven passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns to go with 118 yards rushing and two scores.
Stevens originally set visits to Miami of Ohio, Illinois, and Mississippi State this week, but his trip to Lexington now certainly changes that up a bit.
