Apparently the announcement that Kyle Wiltjer is transferring from the University of Kentucky might have been a little premature.
Wiltjer’s father, Greg Wiltjer, told the Portland Tribune’s Kerry Eggars that Kyle has three options, and only one of them involves transferring. Greg Wiltjer said Kyle could remain at UK on the roster, he could redshirt at UK to develop his skills, or he could transfer.
“Kyle is still a Kentucky Wildcat,” Greg says of Kyle, the former Jesuit High standout who played the past two seasons for John Calipari. “He loves being a Kentucky Wildcat. He’s not 100 percent committed to transferring.”
Eggards said the Wiltjers visited Gonzaga on Wednesday and Thursday.
Kyle is in Toronto, training with the Canadian developmental team that will participate in the World University Games next week at Kazan, Russia.
Eggars said Kyle won’t make a decision until after the World University Games. Greg says he’ll support any decision, but told Eggars he hopes if Kyle returns to UK he redshirts. Greg Wiltjer also said UK coach John Calipari has approved that option.
“The biggest time in Kyle’s career lies in the 14 to 16 months ahead,” Greg told Eggars. “I’d 100 percent like him to devote the next year to working on his body, but it’s his decision. He feels vested in Kentucky. It has been his life the last two years. And Kyle is a very competitive kid. He is always trying to prove people wrong.”
