Considered one of the top recruits brought in during the Mark Stoops Kentucky era, former 4-star recruit Thaddeus Snodgrass has opted to leave the team. 

The receiver out of Ohio initially chose the Wildcats over the likes of Ohio State, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Notre Dame, among others. He was projected to be an integral member of the team going forward in the rebuilding process.

However, Snodgrass dealt with a number of injuries. He never quite was able to put it all together, and fell behind fellow pass-catchers Jeff Badet, Garrett Johnson, Dorian Baker, and Blake Bone in the receiver hierarchy. He failed to record a reception in 2015, and thus will presumably leave for a shot at more playing time.
