The Kentucky football team has added a talented wide receiver…from the Iowa basketball team? Hawkeyes forward Ahmad Wagner just announced he is transferring to Kentucky to play for Mark Stoops.
First off I would like to thank God for the blessing and opportunity he has put in front of me.. with that being said after much thought and consideration from my family I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at the University of Kentucky! #BBN pic.twitter.com/OUWi5n9IV9

After playing basketball for three years at Stoops’ alma mater, the Dayton, Ohio native will finish his college career as a receiver on the Kentucky football team.
A three-sport star at Wayne High School, he only played one season for the football powerhouse. In that year he caught an astounding 58 receptions for 1,028 yards and 17 touchdowns for one of the nation’s top football programs. The 6’7″ track star received a scholarship offer from Kentucky, but did not waver on his basketball commitment to Iowa.
It’s unclear if Wagner will be eligible to play right away, but after watching the spring game, there’s no doubt the Cats could use him this fall.
Jen Smith reports Wagner will play right away and has two season of eligibility remaining. Let’s. Go.
