Vandagriff entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer Monday, the first day of the portal window, and is now staying in the SEC. He was the No. 37 overall recruit in the 2021 class out of Bogart, Georgia, and despite his lofty ranking, he was never able to climb the depth chart and start for the Bulldogs.
He sat behind Carson Beck this season and attempted just 18 passes in 2023, completing 12 for 165 yards and two touchdowns.
Vandagriff has already graduated from Georgia, but he still has two years of eligibility remaining and will help fill a need at the position for Kentucky.
Before the 2023 season, the Wildcats brought in NC State transfer Devin Leary, who threw for 2,440 yards, 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 12 games. Leary and Kentucky went 7-5 this season, and now Vandagriff gives the staff a new option for the 2024 season with Leary running out of eligibility.
Vandagriff's transfer leaves Georgia with an interesting situation at quarterback. Beck has not announced if he will come back for another year or leave for the NFL, so his decision will likely determine if the coaches look for more help at the position.
Raiola is the No. 1 pocket-passing quarterback and the No. 8 overall prospect in the cycle.
