Kentucky sophomore Sacha Killeya-Jones will transfer

SKJ is on the move.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky Wildcats sophomore Sacha Killeya-Jones announced that he will transfer from the program. SKJ made the announcement on his Twitter feed on Monday afternoon.

Killeya-Jones immediately becomes one of the most talented players to hit the transfer market, if not the most. He is a former five-star recruit out of Lynchburg, Virginia, where he attended Virginia Episcopal School before arriving on campus in Lexington in the 2016-17 season. He held offers from multiple top-tier programs, namely the Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels, and Virginia Cavaliers, among others. So don’t be surprised if he becomes one of the most coveted transfers this spring.

In his career at UK, SKJ averaged 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds whilst averaging 11.7 minutes per game. He shot 58.5 percent from the floor, taking roughly 2.2 field goal attempts per game.
