Kentucky Wildcats’ senior quarterback Will Levis will forgo his COVID-year of eligibility and will enter the 2023 NFL Draft. In the interview where he announced the decision he also said he has not yet decided if he will play in the Kentucky Wildcats bowl game to end the season. He also said he planned on making that decision soon. Levis has been constantly placed in mock drafts as a top-three quarterback prospect along with Alabama’s Bryce Young and Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud. He has been ranked as high as one and as low as three among those quarterbacks. There is a good chance he will be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

In his senior season with the Kentucky Wildcats, Will Levis completed 185 passes for 2,406 yards, 19 touchdowns, and ten interceptions on 283 attempts. He also has two rushing touchdowns on the season. Levis has played well for the Kentucky Wildcats for two seasons after transferring from the Penn State Nittany Lions. His draft stock also rose incredibly fast in those two seasons.
Levis’ junior year was considerably better than his senior year, but some of that dip can be attributed to a nagging turf toe injury the quarterback dealt with this season. His decision about the bowl game will largely depend on his desire to play one more college football game with his team. He has already improved his draft stock about as high as it can go, so he could decide to sit out and get ready for his NFL career to begin.
