Junior college quarterback Terry Wilson landed a scholarship offer from Kentucky on Tuesday, two days after the Wildcats lost a commitment from four-star quarterback Jarren Williams.
Wilson — a 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect from Oklahoma City, Okla. — originally signed with Oregon as part of the 2016 class but left the Ducks’ program earlier this year due to a lack of playing time. He’s completed 165 of 279 passes (59.1 percent) in 10 games this fall for Garden City (Kan.) Community College, throwing for 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
He also has 109 carries for 454 yards and five touchdowns.
Wilson told the Herald-Leader on Tuesday that he plans to take a visit to Kentucky sometime in December, after he’s finished with his season. Wilson was ranked by 247Sports as the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2016, and he will have three years to play three seasons at his next stop.
UK has also reached out to Ohio high school quarterback Brennan Armstrong and East Mississippi Community College quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr., but Wilson is the first QB in the recruiting class of 2018 to land an offer from the Wildcats since Williams announced his decommitment Sunday.
