    Legally, you can't, because it is prohibited by Federal law, 18 USC 922 (a)(3) and (a)(5) to transfer any firearm in any manner (except loan and by inheritance when someone dies) to any person who is a resident of a different state without going through an FFL. It's against 18 USC (b) for an FFL to transfer a handgun to a person under 21 years old.

    What you can legally do is temporarily loan him the gun for sporting purposes.

    United States Code: Title 18,922. Unlawful acts | LII / Legal Information Institute

    Well, actually, you said gun. I assumed handgun. If he can prove KY residence (which he is while going to school there), to the satisfaction of a KY FFL, you could ship a rifle/shotgun to a KY FFL for permanent transfer to him.
