(WHAS11) -- John Calipari announced Archie Goodwin is leaving the University of Kentucky early for the NBA. He says Willie Cauley-Stein and Kyle Wiltjer will be back with the wildcats next season.

Goodwin was the team's top scorer, averaging 14 points per game. Cauley-Stein is a huge help defensively, and Wiltjer was named the SEC's Sixth Man of the Year.

Point guard Ryan Harrow is transferring to Georgia State, to be closer to his family.

UK says other players like Nerlens Noel and Alex Poythress will make their decisions "at a later date."
