LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A former player of the University of Kentucky’s basketball team is heading west to finish the remainder of his college career.
Kyle Wiltjer, the 6-foot-10 forward, has decided to transfer to Gonzaga as many had predicted.
Last month, Wiltjer announced he was going to explore other options but remained optimistic for a return to Kentucky.
Wiltjer just finished up play with Canada in the World University Games held in Russia.
This past season, Wiltjer averaged 7 points and three rebounds.
He will sit out the 2014-13 season and will be eligible to play with Gonzaga in 2014-15.
