It was reported Monday that former University of Kentucky WR Zy’aire Hughes entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
The Paducah, KY native was offered by Western Kentucky and Jeff Brohm in the class of 2016. Hughes was ranked a 3 star athlete out of high school and the #4 overall recruit in the state of Kentucky in the 2016 class.
Hughes will have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules. Also, Hughes is fresh off a fourth degree assault charge since being arrested in December (Hughes has not been with the team since the incident). More on that story here.
There’s no doubt that Hughes could provide a big impact on the field and there is some former interest between Western Kentucky and Hughes. The question now is will WKU head football coach Tyson Helton reach out to Hughes and offer him a spot on the roster?
