Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer is likely headed to the West Coast to redshirt next season. But he could be back at Kentucky playing on a loaded team. And there’s always a chance he could redshirt next season — in Lexington.
He has options, and Kentucky is open to any of them.
In an era when coaches and players bicker with each other over transferring, the Wiltjer-John Calipari-UK potential separation went about as smoothly as any of these similar situations in the past few years.
Wiltjer was open with Calipari and the Kentucky fan base and administration about his intentions to pursue another opportunity that might fit his skill set. Calipari delivered to him the news in a transparent fashion too.
