The University of Missouri added another graduate transfer on Friday as former Kentucky punter and kicker Grant McKinniss announced on Twitter he is transferring to Mizzou for his senior season.

The Findlay, Ohio native handled all kickoff duties for the Wildcats in 2018 and 2019, and was the holder on field goals and PATs last season. During the 2019 season, McKinniss kicked off 67 times and had 48 touchbacks. In 2018, he had 66 kickoffs and 36 touchbacks.

McKinniss never attempted a field goal or PAT during his Kentucky career, but was UK's starting punter in 2016 during his freshman season and averaged 39.2 yards per punt. He redshirted in 2017 and will have one year of eligibility remaining at Missouri.
