Sahvir Wheeler has committed to the University of Kentucky Wildcats, after a long recruiting process.

Wheeler chose Kentucky over the likes of Kansas, LSU, and Oklahoma State. The addition of Wheeler solidifies Kentucky’s backcourt for next season, unless Davion Mintz does decide to return for a sixth season.

During his live stream with Jeff Goodman, Wheeler said that he chose to commit to Kentucky and John Calipari for a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament, as well as having a roster in which he believes is set up for a National Championship run.

“You got guys that are experienced, you got guys on that roster with length, with athleticism, and most of all I’m looking forward to [spacing the floor] and shooting with CJ, with Kellan, Dontaie Allen, and with TyTy Washington,” Wheeler said.

Wheeler said it was a point guard’s dream to play with players of that talent and to play “under a prestigious and amazing coaching staff.”

Wheeler said that his leadership style is to galvanize and to bring people together for a common goal. “I believe love, that’s the biggest thing... spread positive vibes,” Wheeler said.

“We’re coming for that national championship,” Wheeler said.
