Another Kentucky football player is leaving the program. Former four-star prospect Jordan Anthony will be the fifth class of 2022 signee to move on after just one season.

On Tuesday afternoon, the 5-foot-9 and 156-pound wideout announced his intentions to enter the transfer portal vis his own personal Twitter account.

The Tylertown (Miss.) High product committed to Kentucky the summer before his senior campaign picking the Wildcats over Boston College, Houston, Memphis, Ole Miss, Syracuse, and South Alabama. Jordan Anthony was a prominent track-and-field athlete with numerous power conference offers.

During his freshman season with the football program, Anthony played in two games preserving his redshirt. In the spring, Anthony competed with the Kentucky track & field program becoming one of the best young sprinters in the SEC. The dual-sport athlete was an SEC silver medalist in the 60m and earned second-team all-conference honors.

Anthony will now be looking for a new football and track & field home. The wide receiver still has four years of eligibility remaining. The Wildcats have eight scholarship wideouts on the 2023 roster and will have one available scholarship, per KSR’s count.

Kobi Albert (Mississippi State), Tomiwa Durojaiye (West Virginia), Kiyaunta Goodwin (Florida), and Jordan Anthony are class of 2022 signees that have left the Kentucky football team after just one season.
