Thaddeus Snodgrass to Transfer from Kentucky: Latest Details and Reaction

According to Jennifer Smith of the Herald-Leader (via KentuckySports.com), University of Kentucky wide receiver Thaddeus Snodgrass left the program on Wednesday. 

A redshirt freshman, Snodgrass didn't record a single catch during his time with the Wildcats after he was merely listed as a participant for the last three games.

When asked about his lack of playing time, head coach Mark Stoops told Smith that "there’s some other guys playing and he’s been having his struggles, but we’ll see where that goes."

Snodgrass was a 4-star recruit out of Springfield, Ohio. Of the class of 2014, he was the 15th overall prospect in the state and the 43rd-ranked wide receiver in the country, according to 247Sports' composite rankings. 

He impressed Stoops in the spring, as the coach told Smith: "We really feel like he’s got a bright future. He’s strong and he’s got a lot of upside. He’s a guy we feel like can help us outside, got some deep balls, just needs to be a little bit more consistent."   

Snodgrass is one of a number of Kentucky players who left the program in 2015, per Smith. Cornerback Jaleel Hytchye, linebacker Dorian Hendrix, wide receiver Rashad Cunningham and offensive linemen Josh Krok and Nick Richardson left the Wildcats this season.

According to 247Sports, Snodgrass received offers from 15 other schools, including Ohio State, Michigan State and Notre Dame. It remains to be seen where he will transfer to, but one would have to believe that one of those 15 teams will be in the mix.
