Former Penn State Quarterback Will Levis Declares For 2023 NFL Draft
Former Penn State and current Kentucky quarterback Will Levis has declared for the 2023 NFL Draft. Levis took to Blue Chips, a digital NIL-related platform, on Twitter to announce the decision. He has yet to announce whether or not he will play in Kentucky’s upcoming bowl game.
The decision is not a surprise as Levis is projected to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Madison, Connecticut, native has put together a solid season, throwing for 2,406 yards and 19 touchdowns, all while completing 65.4 percent of his passes. He’s thrown 10 interceptions this year.
Levis spent the first two seasons of his career at Penn State but saw limited playing time while Sean Clifford held down the reigns as the starting quarterback. In 14 appearances as a Nittany Lion, Levis completed 59.8 percent of passes and threw for 644 yards and three touchdowns.
Levis entered the transfer portal after the 2020 season and eventually landed at Kentucky with two years of eligibility remaining. He immediately took over the starting job and performed well, with a 66.0 completion percentage, including 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2021. Levis’ performance helped guide the Wildcats to a 10-3 season and a No. 18 finish in the final AP Poll.
Currently, Levis is projected as a first-round pick in the draft. Other quarterbacks such as C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young, and Hendon Hooker are also expected to be taken toward the top of the pecking order.
