McKenzie Milton has played his last game in a UCF uniform.

The Knights quarterback, sidelined the past two seasons after suffering a horrific knee injury during a 2018 game at USF, announced Thursday he was entering the transfer portal.

Milton, who led the Knights to a 13-0 record and Peach Bowl victory over Auburn following the 2017 season, has one year of eligibility remaining.

UCF shared an emotional farewell video on Twitter.

“I’ve got one shot to go chase a dream, a lifelong dream to go play in the NFL,” Milton says in the video.
