Miles Wilson not considering Kentucky Basketball

UK inquired into Miles Wilson, but it won’t go any further.

The Kentucky Wildcats appear to be out of the running for Miles Wilson.

The Mt. Saint Mary’s transfer has reportedly cut his list down to Auburn and Miami, according to’s Evan Daniels.

It’s unclear if UK was ever a real player for Wilson, though they did inquire into his services. The 6-5-, 190-pound shooting guard averaged 11.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game last season as a freshman. That included a 22-point outburst in MSM’s loss to Villanova in the NCAA Tournament.

While UK spoke with Wilson shortly after he decided to transfer, it never materialized into anything serious. He’s become one of the hotter transfer names on the market, but because he would have to sit out the 2017-18 season, he’s not an ideal target for UK, who is limited on scholarships and in the running for Mohamed Bamba and Cameron Johnson, while Hamidou Diallo could also return.

Alas, we hardly knew ya Miles.
