Twitter reactions to Oscar Tshiebwe committing to Kentucky

The Cats should have a loaded frontcourt next season.


The Kentucky Wildcats are in the process of righting the ship after a rough start to the 2020-21 season.

However, John Calipari just landed a massive addition for the 2021-22 season, as West Virginia transfer Oscar Tshiebwe has committed to Kentucky.

In his 41-game career at West Virginia, Tshiebwe averaged 10.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, and shot 54% from the field and 69.2% from the free-throw line.

Tshiebwe is in the process of submitting his paperwork and will join the team on campus next week. However, he will not be eligible until the 2021-22 season. He will practice this season which will be a big help for the current team to get tougher going up against a physical force like Tshiebwe.

Once again, this is a massive get for the Cats, as it is rare that you add a McDonalds All-American with three years of eligibility remaining and one that was the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the big news:

C’mon man.
