Wide receiver Greenwood will transfer, Kentucky confirms

Sophomore wide receiver Jabari Greenwood is parting ways with Kentucky, a team spokesman confirmed Monday.

As a redshirt freshman, the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder from the Washington, D.C., area played in all 13 games, but mostly on special teams.

He did not register a catch last season and appeared to have dropped to third team in the Blue-White Spring Game three weeks ago.

The three-star wide receiver was ranked the fourth-best player in the D.C. area and the No. 51 wideout nationally. In his senior season, Greenwood had 50 catches for 754 yards and nine touchdowns.

Greenwood is the fifth Kentucky player to transfer this offseason. Others include linebackers De’Niro Laster, Kobie Walker and Nico Firios, and fellow wideout Dakota Holtzclaw.

This latest departure has UK at 84 total scholarship players, one below the NCAA limit for a season.
