Ex-Kentucky QB Terry Wilson transfers to New Mexico
Former Kentucky dual-threat quarterback Terry Wilson has transferred to New Mexico, the Lobos announced Tuesday.
Wilson, who went 17-8 as a starter for the Wildcats from 2018-20, has one season remaining and is eligible to play for the Lobos in 2021.
“Terry Wilson will bring immediate experience to our quarterback room,” New Mexico coach Danny Gonzales said in a news release. “He is a three-year starter in the SEC and won 68 percent of his games there. He is a true dual-threat quarterback who should fit very well into what we are trying to do offensively. He was a two-time captain at Kentucky and he earned his degree as well, so he will bring a level of maturity and leadership to our team.”
Wilson announced he was entering the NCAA transfer portal in January.
Wilson passed for 3,436 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 1,015 yards and 10 scores with the Wildcats.
He appeared in 10 games in 2020, completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,187 yards with seven TDs and four interceptions. He rushed 104 times for 424 yards and five scores.
