The NCAA Transfer portal has been active over the last month and today a local player entered his name into it.
Former Aliquippa star defensive back MJ Devonshire announced that he’s decided to transfer from Kentucky after two seasons. Devonshire was a redshirt freshman this season and will have 4 years of athletic eligibility remaining.
“I would like to thank Coach Stoops and the entire coaching staff at the University of Kentucky for giving me the opportunity to grow as a man. I will forever hold the memories and friendships made while I was there. To the brothers I made I know y’all will ball and make it to the top and I can’t wait to see you all there. Y’all my brothers for life! With that being said I will be entering the transfer portal.”
Pittsburgh Sports Now is told that despite being in the competition to start next season, Devonshire wasn’t happy with his development at Kentucky and with their defensive scheme in which they were using a lot less press coverage than he was told they’d play when he committed there.
Before deciding on Kentucky, the former Rivals 4-star recruit also held offers from Pitt, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon State, Syracuse and West Virginia.
