Former Kentucky quarterback Gunnar Hoak is heading home.
The Dublin, OH native announced on Twitter this evening that he will be transferring to Ohio State to close out his college football career.
“I would like to formally announce that I am excited to accept an offer to continue my football and academic careers at THE Ohio State University,” Hoak said. “Ever since I was born at OSU hospital, some aspect of my life has always involved scarlet and gray. … And while I have gained so much experience during my time in Lexington, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to continue a family legacy.”

Hoak’s transfer leaves the Kentucky quarterback room looking rather worrisome. Outside of starting quarterback Terry Wilson, there are zero players at the position with game experience at the Division I level.
Walker Wood and true freshman Amani Gilmore will likely compete for the backup position while injured quarterback Nik Scalzo recovers from his torn ACL.
