Twitter reactions to Sahvir Wheeler rocking Kentucky blue

A big addition to the Kentucky backcourt!

The Kentucky Wildcats just picked up another commitment for the 2021-22 season, as Georgia transfer Sahvir Wheeler announced he will be rocking Kentucky blue.

During the 2020-21 season, Wheeler averaged 14 points, 7.4 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. He not only led the SEC in assists, but he led the league in assists-to-turnover ratio (1.68) showing that he is one of the elite playmakers in the country.

Wheeler was named Second-Team All-SEC and was ranked fifth nationally in assists last season. He’s also just 20 years old, so he’s still pretty young and could further develop into the kind of guy who could run an offense for a Final Four contender with the right pieces surrounding him.

While Wheeler isn’t the best three-point shooter (26%), he shoots a solid 47.9% on two-point shots and can finish at the rim, despite being 5-10.

However, with sharpshooter like Kellan Grady, Dontaie Allen, and CJ Fredrick already on the roster, Kentucky needs someone that can get them the ball in the right spots to score, and that’s exactly what Wheeler brings to the table.
