LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky men’s basketball freshman guard/forward Charles Matthews will transfer from UK, head coach John Calipari announced Wednesday.
Matthews will be granted a full release with no restrictions.
“The hardest thing as a coach is to lose a player that you really want to coach,” Calipari said. “In Charles’ case, I believe he is going to be a productive college player who has the ability to play at the next level. I know Charles’ best basketball is ahead of him, and while I’m a saddened to see him go, I support his decision and will help in any way I can.
