Former Auburn Quarterback Joey Gatewood announced via Twitter that he will be transferring to Kentucky.

Gatewood was the 36th overall prospect in the 2018 class and the 3rd overall dual-threat quarterback. He is the fourth highest rated prospect Kentucky has had since 2000.

He entered the transfer portal a couple of weeks ago and has made multiple visits to Lexington, including last weekend when Kentucky defeated Louisville 45-13.

This season, Gatewood has completed 5-7 passes for 2 touchdowns while adding 148 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground as a backup to Bo Nix.
