Kentucky's Jordan Dingle enters transfer portal

Jordan Dingle‘s time in Lexington has come to an abrupt close, as the redshirt sophomore has decided to enter the transfer portal.

The 6-4, 238-pound tight end officially hit the portal on Thursday — a surprising development for the Kentucky offense.

Dingle recorded 11 catches for 198 yards in 2023, highlighted by an 89-yard effort vs. Akron and a 61-yard performance vs. Tennessee. He has racked up 472 career receiving yards and three touchdowns across three seasons in Lexington.

Now, the Bowling Green native is looking for his next home.

A member of the Freshman All-SEC Team in 2022, Dingle was rated as a top-20 tight end out of high school and a top-500 prospect overall. He originally chose the Wildcats over Purdue, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Ohio State, among a host of others.

Dingle’s departure comes on the heels of Izayah Cummings entering the portal and Brenden Bates running out of eligibility. That leaves Josh Kattus and Khamari Anderson as the program’s core pieces in the tight end room, with three-star Willie Rodriguez also committed in the program’s 2024 recruiting class. It’s a strong three-man group, but one severely lacking in depth.

Time to find it in the portal.
