LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky wide receiver/tight end Tre’Von Morgan has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal for the second time, a source told Catspause.com. Morgan transferred from Michigan State following the 2020 season and committed to Kentucky in February 2021.
The 6-foot-6, 218-pounder did not appear in a game during his Kentucky career. Morgan came to Kentucky with the idea of being a receiver, but he was moved to tight end during fall practice. Still, he was unable to crack the rotation at either spot and seemed to be facing an uphill battle next year had he stayed at tight end. Sixth-year senior Justin Rigg is the only tight end graduating, meaning five scholarship tight ends will be on next year’s roster. Keaton Upshaw returns from injury, along with Brenden Bates, Izayah Cummings, Jordan Dingle and incoming freshman Josh Kattus.
A native of Massillon, Ohio, Morgan played in three games at Michigan State in 2020 and caught two passes for 46 yards, including a touchdown against Penn State.
Morgan is the 13th player to transfer from Kentucky since the regular season ended. He joins quarterback Nik Scalzo, running backs Torrance Davis and Travis Tisdale, wide receiver Isaiah Epps, offensive linemen Jake Pope and Naasir Watkins, defensive lineman Isaiah Gibson, linebackers Jared Casey, KD McDaniel and Marquez Bembry, cornerback Cedrick Dort and safety Moses Douglass.
The Wildcats have commitments from three incoming transfers: Virginia Tech wide receiver Tayvion Robinson, Auburn offensive lineman Tashawn Manning and Ohio State defensive lineman Darrion Henry-Young
