NCAA Basketball: Indiana at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like Kentucky will be waiting another week to hear a final decision from Matt Haarms. The soon-to-be graduate transfer from Purdue has narrowed his list of candidates, but has yet to announce his destination. Evan Daniels was quick to remind the Big Blue Nation that Kentucky could very well not be the leading school for Haarms, adding that it could very well still be up in the air.

The 7’3, 250 pound center would be an excellent replacement of Nick Richards as the former Wildcat heads to the NBA Draft. After averaging 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 blocks, his presence on the inside of the paint could blossom with Kentucky’s elevated guard play.

Per ESPN, Haarms is the second-ranked graduate transfer on their board. His veteran leadership, as well as the fact he’s a front court player, would be something Kentucky has looked to acquire over the last two seasons (see Reid Travis & Nate Sestina).

Haarms could make his decision next weekend, with a decision coming between what is believed to be the following schools: Arizona, Arkansas, Boston College, BYU, Gonzaga, Kentucky, Memphis, Minnesota, Texas Tech and UNC Greensboro.
