Georgia Bulldog transfer Sahvir Wheeler could make his decision on where he intends to go as soon as this weekend. After releasing a Final Four list of teams last week, Kentucky has emerged as what many believe to be the favorite to land the talented assist man.
After missing out on a few star recruits over the last several years as well as a couple of Kentucky’s graduate transfer efforts not exactly panning out to be home runs, this is exactly what head coach John Calipari and his program needs heading into this season.
Wheeler is one of the top assist men in the country and has been for the last two seasons. He would immediately elevate the talent Kentucky could have around him while also adding double-digit scoring on his own. It’s a dream scenario for the Wildcats, a real chance for Wheeler to play in prime-time TV games and also have a solid crack at the Final Four.
Sahvir Wheeler's 332 career assists in just two seasons at Georgia would rank 13th all-time at Kentucky. His 193 assists last season would rank top-5 on UK's single-season list.— Chris Fisher (@ChrisFisher247) May 14, 2021
Playing more than 34 minutes per game last season for the Bulldogs, Wheeler averaged 14 points, 7.4 assists and 1.7 steals. While his field goal shooting percentages were down from both behind the arc as well as from the field in general, he still made life much easier for his teammates. That’s exactly what Kentucky needs to take their team to the next level.
