Kentucky Wildcats wide receiver Jabari Greenwood seeks transfer

Sophomore wideout seeks new home coming out of spring.

When Kentucky signed highly touted receiver prospect Jabari Greenwood out of Washington, D.C., as part of its 2015 recruiting class, it marked the emergence of the Wildcats as a recruiting factor in the talent-rich DMV area.

The UK program has continued to find success in the region since then but will be doing so without Greenwood in the future. 

Greenwood, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound sophomore who spent most of the spring low on the receiver depth chart, is seeking to transfer. The school confirmed his intention on Monday.

He was redshirted in 2015 and encountered injury issues last season, failing to record a catch. 

Greenwood is the third receiver to transfer from UK since the end of the 2016 season, joining senior Jeff Badet and redshirt freshman Dakota Holtzclaw. In total, six players have left the program in the offseason. 

Coming out of Gonzaga College Prep, Greenwood was rated the top wide receiver and the No. 7 prospect in the DMV area by Scout. 

It is currently unknown where he intends to transfer.
