Read Time:1 Minute, 57 Second

Devin Leary is in line to succeed Will Levis as Kentucky’s starting quarterback.

According to multiple reports, He is moving to Lexington as a former NC State quarterback for the 2023 season. Leary, widely regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks, is still eligible for one season while Levis is headed to the 2023 NFL draft.

Leary was a remarkable 2021 player for NC State, where they went 9-3 and won a Holiday Bowl berth. Leary was 283 of 431 passing for 3,433 yard and threw 35 touchdowns to just five interceptions.

However, his 2020 and 2022 seasons were cut short by injury. Leary was injured in the 2020 season with a fractured fibula. Six games into the 2022 season, he suffered a torn pectoral muscular muscle. After Leary suffered the injury in October, the school said that he didn’t suffer any damage to his throwing shoulder.

Leary had a 1,265 yard passing record of 118-of-193, with 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. His average yardage was just 6.6 yards per attempt. Before signing to Kentucky, he had previously visited Auburn.

Many draft fans loved Levis’ two seasons at Kentucky. He transferred from Penn State. Many believe Levis, despite his arm strength and size, can be a first round pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

Leary will be the new offensive coordinator at Kentucky. The offense averaged just 22 points per match in 2022. However, the offense will have a new coordinator. Liam Coen was the former offensive coordinator for Kentucky. Los Angeles Rams assistant, has been reported to return to Lexington in 2023.

Kentucky needs to improve its offensive play, but the Wildcats will be returning freshman wide receiver Barion brown. Brown was a wide receiver and kick returner who emerged as one the most dangerous threats in the SEC during the 2022 season. Brown caught 45 passes and rushed for 604 yards, four touchdowns, while averaging 28 yards per kick return.
