Nate Sestina is the latest grad transfer that coach Cal has brought in and the second in two years with Reid Travis last year.
In the latest edition of Meet the Wildcats, Sestina opened up to talk about what his goals are in his one season with the Kentucky Wildcats, and after hearing what he had to say, it made me even more excited to have him on the team.
He knows what his role will be for this team and his leadership will help this team grow and be even more successful on and off the court.
“I’m really looking forward to being a locker room guy, being a glue guy, the old guy that’s able to help the younger guys through all the ups and downs…but I’m really looking forward to playing in front of Rupp Arena.”
Take a minute to listen @NateSestina23 talk about what he hopes to accomplish in his lone season at UK and you'll know why we're so excited to have him on our team.— Kentucky Basketball (@KentuckyMBB) August 5, 2019
Humble. Talented. Experienced. Leader. #BBN, meet Nate as the @PapaJohns #MeetTheWildcats series rolls on. pic.twitter.com/06MpOQCHwz
He has a different skill set on the floor than Travis did, but Sestina’s value as a leader and keeping the young guys on track will resemble what we saw a year ago.
I know I am looking forward to seeing him throughout the season, and I know he will be a fan-favorite with all of BBN.
