LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Kentucky guard Sahvir Wheeler has entered the transfer portal after two seasons with the Wildcats. The school confirmed the report to FOX 56 Sports on Monday evening.
“I talked with Sahvir a few days ago and he decided that he wants to graduate and play one more year because of the injuries he faced this year,” John Calipari tweeted on Monday afternoon. “He also wanted a fresh start, and I supported his decision. Sahvir has been a big part of our team and we wish him nothing but the best.”
Wheeler led the SEC in assists in 2021, and averaged seven points and five assists per game in 2022. He missed the final month of the season due to surgery from an ankle injury.
Wheeler transferred to Kentucky in 2021 from Georgia, and took over as the team’s starting point guard. He’ll have one year of eligibility left.
