Kentucky transfer Kyle Wiltjer headed to Gonzaga

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Kentucky transfer Kyle Wiltjer has decided to enroll at Gonzaga, his father told CBSSports.com on Friday.

Wiltjer, a 6-foot-10 forward, announced in late June that he was debating leaving the Wildcats, although he had second thoughts soon after his visit to Gonzaga. After going back and forth, it seems that he is officially a done deal to the Bulldogs.

On his Twitter account, Wiltjer explained his decision.

Dear BBN, this past month has been very emotional and challenging for me. Whether to transfer or not has been one of the toughest decisions of my life, so I would like to thank everyone for being so supportive through this process. I feel like in my basketball career I'm facing a make it or break it moment and the primary factor in this decision is transforming my body. I'm choosing to transfer to Gonzaga because i feel they have a proven plan in place to help develop players similar to me, which has seen great results. I believe with hard work I can maximize my development at Gonzaga. The last two years at UK have been a valuable experience and I'm very grateful for them. Even though I'm leaving the program, Coach Cal and I will continue our relationship and I will look to him for advice. He is more than just a coach to me. I have made many friends here and I plan to come back. My heart will always be in Lex.


Thank you BBN,
Kyle Wiltjer

The Oregon native averaged 10.2 points last season.
