Kyle Wiltjer leaves UK

Wiltjer, a 6-foot-9, 239-pounder, was a Top 25 recruit coming out of Beaverton, Ore.

He averaged 4.8 points a game during his freshman season, which saw Kentucky win the national championship. Last season, he averaged 10.2 points and 4.2 rebounds a game.

I am sure he is leaving because next year's lottery is showing up in Lexington this fall.

Can the Buckeyes find room for this guy?

They need another big, but I think they are looking for a C. I read a few days ago that 2014 recruit Dave Bell has had a late growth spurt and is now 6'11, so if true, they may have room for a 4 as Bell would be more like a 5 now.

KY's 2013 class is just RIDICULOUS.

Gotta be the best ever, no??

Coach Cal ought to just petition the NBA to just add an NBA franchise in Lexington and let him keep the last couple of classes intact and roll right into the NBA next year. They would be pretty good!!
