On Sunday afternoon, Ken Seals announced via X that he will enter the transfer portal. Yesterday, Seals went seven-for-nine and threw for 61 yards and a touchdown in Vanderbilt’s final game of the season.

The quarterback spent four seasons at Vanderbilt. In 2020, Seals became the third true freshman quarterback to start in an SEC season opener since 1972. He started all nine games for the Commodores that season.

In his sophomore season, Seals shared the starting quarterback position with Mike Wright. Seals started in 7 of Vanderbilt’s 12 games that season. He threw for 238 yards and a touchdown in Vanderbilt’s sole road win in 2021

In 2022, Seals fell to QB3 on the depth chart behind Wright and AJ Swann. Seals did not see game action in his junior season but decided to stay at Vanderbilt for the 2023 season.

“Even though I wasn’t playing and wasn’t doing everything that I wanted to do, I think, at the end of the day, I still really liked my coaches. I really believed in what Coach Lea was building here,” Seals said during the 2023 season.

In 2023, Seals started in six games for the Commodores. Seals leaves West End with the seventh-most passing touchdowns (28) in Vanderbilt history.

This piece will be updated as more information becomes available.
