YAHTZEE! Former Auburn quarterback Joey Gatewood has announced he will be transferring to the University of Kentucky, in a tweet he posted Thursday evening. He is considered arguably the best transfer prospect in the nation.
Gatewood, the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 36 overall player from the class of 2018, took multiple visits to UK’s campus before ultimately deciding the Bluegrass will be his new home. One visit came last Saturday, when he was in attendance for Kentucky’s 45-13 beatdown over the Louisville Cardinals.

The 6-foot-5, 233 pound redshirt freshman played in seven games for the Tigers this season, completing five of seven passing attempts with two touchdowns. He added 29 rushes for 148 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
Vince Marrow is pretty excited.
? let’s go.
