Former Tennessee offensive tackle Gerald Mincey announced his commitment to Kentucky football on Friday night after entering the transfer portal last week.

Mincey is making his rounds through what used to be the SEC East before the conference went away from the division format. The Fort Lauderdale native spent the first two years of his college career at Florida before transferring to Tennessee.

The offensive tackle spent two seasons at Tennessee where he started 13 total games. Mincey split playing time with Jeremiah Crawford at left tackle during the 2022 season before moving to right tackle in 2023 where he started six games.

Mincey earned a 61.5 PFF grade in 578 plays during his redshirt junior season a mark that ranked third amongst Tennessee offensive linemen.

The versatile offensive tackle originally announced plans to return to Tennessee for his redshirt senior season but after courts eliminated the NCAA’s one-time free transfer rule Mincey decided to re-enter the portal.

Tennessee is still looking for its replacement for Mincey at offensive tackle. The Vols are heavily pursuing highly touted LSU offensive tackle transfer Lance Heard. Josh Heupel’s team returns at least two offensive line starters from last season, Cooper Mays and John Campbell Jr, while Javontez Spraggins is expected to return as well.

Mincey will make his return to Tennessee on Nov. 2 when Kentucky travels to Neyland Stadium for a rivalry matchup.
