Last week, it was reported junior wide receiver Tavin Richardson entered the football “transfer portal” and wished to leave the University of Kentucky. A new tweet from Richardson confirms the news:

The video shows Richardson’s best moments as a Wildcat inside Kroger Field. During his final season in the blue and white, Richardson totaled 13 receptions for 114 yards. His biggest games, ironically, came in Kentucky’s losses – he had 26 yards against Georgia and 37 yards against Tennessee.
His sophomore season was much stronger than his junior season – that year, Richardson had 27 receptions for 371 yards. But during the 2018-19 year, the Cats’ offense was built around the run game, largely thanks to Benny Snell, of course. And although Snell wouldn’t have limited Richardson’s opportunities come next season, the former Wildcat must have thought UK was no longer his best option.
Richardson hasn’t yet announced where he intends to go next season, but the BBN wishes him the best.
