Georgia QB Brock Vandagriff bows out for Kentucky

Quarterback Brock Vandagriff committed to Kentucky as a graduate transfer with two years of eligibility remaining.

A backup to Carson Beck in 2023, Vandagriff will be in the running to replace Devin Leary, a one-year starter who transferred to Kentucky from NC State, as the Wildcats’ starter in 2024.

Vandagriff arrived in Athens as the No. 17 overall recruit in the Class of 2021, per the 247Sports composite.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Georgia native completed 12 of 18 passes for 165 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while backing up Beck in 2023.

Vandagriff confirmed he was leaving Athens in a farewell to the Bulldogs on Monday.

“Dawg Nation, thank you for the unwavering support over the past 3 years,” Vandagriff posted on X. “I was able to accomplish a huge goal of mine, which is graduating from the University of Georgia.”

Leary is out of eligibility and Beck is expected to return to Georgia in 2024 unless he’s convinced the NFL is an immediate option.

The Bulldogs hold a standing commitment from five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola in Georgia’s celebrated 2024 recruiting class.
