After bringing in Will Levis and Devin Leary back-to-back, Mark Stoops clearly has developed an affinity for transfer portal quarterbacks. This offseason he may have struck gold again with a highly-touted backup as he did with Levis.

Leary’s performance was underwhelming as the Wildcats went 7-6, so Stoops went out and got former five-star Brock Vandagriff from Georgia. Vandagriff lost a quarterback battle with Carsen Beck last offseason, but now he has a chance to prove himself as an SEC starter. 

Stoops also got Jamon Dumas-Johnson from Georgia to lead his defense and provided Vandagriff with a few weapons, North Texas’s Ja’Mori Maclin, a dynamic receiver who had a 1,000-yard season in 2023, and Chip Traynum, former Ohio State running back. Vandagriff’s blindside will be protected by former Tennessee Volunteer Gerald Mincey.
