The Kentucky Wildcats have lost a walk-on for the 2020-21 men’s basketball season.

On Monday, it was revealed that Isaac DeGregorio had withdrawn from UK. Jerry Tipton broke the news first.

A 5-10 point guard out of Pennsylvania, DeGregorio joined UK was a walk-on back in March. He led North Catholic to a Class 3A WPIAL championship as a senior in 2019-20 while averaging 17.9 points per game. He totaled 1,563 career points, 440 assists and made 283 3-pointers at a 40% clip while playing for his father, head coach Dave DeGregorio, and they have a previous connection to John Calipari.

In the early 80s, Calipari was a college point guard at Clarion under then-head coach Joe DeGregorio, the grandfather of Isaac, so that relationship undoubtedly played a part in getting Isaac to Lexington as a walk-on.

As Calipari alluded to in that tweet from 2018, Isaac has a brother who recently graduated from UK.

The loss of DeGregorio leaves Kentucky with Brennan Canada, Zan Payne and Riley Welch as UK walk-ons.
