Will Levis has spent five seasons playing college football. He won’t play a sixth.

The Kentucky quarterback, who could have taken advantage of the NCAA waiver for the pandemic to play another season for the Wildcats, announced Wednesday night he is entering the 2023 NFL draft.

“My intentions are to enter the draft after this season,” Levis said on a Blue Chips Twitter space. “I’ve talked with the coaches and the people I needed to these past couple days. I will be making a decision [on the bowl] soon, but nothing is final.”

Kentucky will learn its bowl site and opponent Saturday.

Levis is projected as one of the top quarterbacks in the draft, a likely first-round choice.

He played 11 games this season, throwing for 2,406 yards and 19 touchdowns, the Wildcats went 7-5. They were 7-4 with Levis, losing the one game he didn’t play.

  1. I’ve heard Tepper really wants him in Carolina. Sounds like a great place to go watch your NFL career fail to take off.

  2. Wouldn’t want to be the GM drafting him.

    Dude is gonna get a GN and probably sevwral coaches fired.

    Every game I have seen of his, he falls apart the second there is any pressure. His mechanics and accuracy just go to crap unless he has a completely clean pocket.

  3. You played five seasons young man and for you to win a national championship you have to go through Georgia Alabama or Tennessee first..yeah it’s time to think about your future right

  4. Should be the first QB off the board but Stroud and Young will unfortunately go ahead of him. Levis is a much better pro QB prospect

  5. Levis shouldn’t be projected as a 1st round pick. He regressed this year and looked awful at times. Anyone taking him in the first few rounds is making a big mistake.

  6. This guy is definitely not a first round QB. I maybe could be pushed to take him in the 4th. What exactly has he done to warrant any attention? There are easily 15 college QBs better (that I’ve seen), including underclassmen. He has no choice but to declare. UK is probably kicking him out the door. In 5 years he’ll be coaching at his old high school.
