Denzil Ware announces he will transfer to another school

Denzil Ware is transferring to another university for his final season of college football. He announced the news on Twitter late Thursday afternoon.

“It was a very tough decision to make,” Ware wrote. “I want to thank Coach Stoops and all the other coaches for everything they’ve done for me. Thank you, #BBN for all the support over these last three years. To my teammates, y’all are my brothers. I’ll always bleed blue. Go Cats.”

Ware will graduate from UK this spring with a degree in community and leadership development. He will be eligible to play immediately as a grad transfer, wherever he ends up for his final season.

      Seriously, u note he didn’t say where he’s going, he’s just leaving. Weird. With the suspension bf the Bowl game, u wonder if it’s discipline: “we’re not throwing u out, but ur leaving.” This is not one u can rationalize away as “he saw competition coming in and knew he wouldn’t play.” Not declaring for the draft made it look like we had our best D but this is a big hole to fill.

    Something is going on in that program. Too many transfers.

      He got in trouble b4 the bowl game if u recall; he may not be meeting stoops’ demands for reinstatement. If that’s the case, he needs to move on.

      I can see him transferring somewhere where he will have a chance at a national title or even the playoffs like Badget did at Oklahoma last year.

    Problems within the football program?

    Probably a lingering consequence of the trash can incident against Louisville.

    Just being a caulk announcing this so late. What a jerk. Don’t care if the kid ever plays another down of football.

    Still have to ask what the fluke is going on with this program, with so many transfers of vital veterans each spring. It’s one thing to have guys that aren’t contributing or are underclassmen that don’t want to compete for time. This is insane

    “I’ll always bleed blue”

    MF doesn’t even know what it means, if he’s announcing transferring right now and from a team that needed and counted on him.



  27. Jay17282

    Not like he wasn’t gonna start probably not meeting reinstatement demands

    He can keep his blue blood. This is a tremendous loss to the defense, no matter how you look at it.

    It’s a bad sign about either Denzel Ware or the program. Nothing personal but I hope it’s the former. It would be a good research project for KSR to see how many veteran transfers other SEC schools have. Maybe we just read more about it bc of the site, but I don’t remember this happening so much before. Sheez, I’d like at least one sport where we don’t have to learn all new names every year!

    Sounds like maybe he got sent packing

    Wonder if he watched Jeff Badet last year at Oklahoma and thought maybe, just maybe he could strike gold and find a program that could contend for a playoff berth?

    Why didn’t he just declare for the draft? Didn’t Kiper have him on draft boards? This must’ve just come up…

      Agree, had high hopes for Ware but dude got hurt every game and missed significant plays. Kinda like the star cornerback who has gotten a little worse every year and is hurt every game. Best of luck to him.

    Look up all of Stoops 4-star recruits. How many are still with the program. Of those that stayed, how many actually made decent contributions on the field.
