Twitter reactions to Kahlil Whitney’s departure

Kahlil Whitney announces his departure from Kentucky.

Kahlil Whitney shocked everyone this afternoon with the news that he will be leaving the University of Kentucky basketball program.

Whitney was the Wildcats’ second commit of the 2019 class, just behind Tyrese Maxey, and called the Kentucky Wildcats his dream school.

Whitney becomes another in a long-line of highly touted prospects to come to Kentucky, only to get buried behind more highly touted prospects, leading to their eventual transfer. Ryan Harrow, Kyle Wiltjer, Sacha Killeya-Jones, Marcus Lee, Charles Matthews, Quade Green, Jemarl Baker, and now Kahlil Whitney.

Here is what social media had to say about Whitney’s decision:
