The long wait is over. Will Levis is in Lexington.
The University of Kentucky confirmed to KSR that the quarterback has made it to campus in preparation of summer workouts. Mark Stoops’ team is currently on a brief hiatus, returning to action in June. Levis graduated with a degree in finance from Penn State last week.
3 years and 1 degree later! So proud to be an alumnus of The Pennsylvania State University. Can’t thank the Penn State community enough for helping to shape me into who I am today. Beyond excited for this next chapter in my life! #WeAre ➡️📍#BBN pic.twitter.com/SnOIyyjdtz

Levis is expected to compete for the starting quarterback position with Beau Allen and Joey Gatewood once preseason camp begins in August. In 15 career games the 6-foot-3 athlete completed 60% os his passes for 644 yards and three scores, with just two interceptions. He also rushed for 473 yards and six touchdowns. Offensive coordinator Liam Coen described what Levis brings to the table last week on KSR.
“Unknown is obviously something — how can he pick up the offense? There’s some physical traits there that you really like to see. Has game experience, has played in big games at a high level. Smart, graduated from Penn State in three years. It’s just — hey, get him some game reps, get him some reps in the system and see how it goes.”
