Kyle Wiltjer’s transfer from Kentucky isn’t a done deal. Far from it, says his father, Greg. “Kyle is still a Kentucky Wildcat,” Greg says of Kyle, the former Jesuit High standout who played the past two seasons for John Calipari. “He loves being a Kentucky Wildcat. He’s not 100 percent committed to transferring.”
But Kyle is, as his dad describes it, in a dilemma, and is considering a three-pronged decision that would mean a) playing at Kentucky next season, b) redshirting at Kentucky or c) transferring.
The 6-10, 240-pound Wiltjer started 10 of 33 games for Kentucky and was the team’s No. 4 scorer as a sophomore last season, averaging 10.2 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting .421 from the field, .367 from 3-point range and .810 from the foul line. Wiltjer was in the rotation as a freshman for the Kentucky team that won the 2012 national championship.
