West Virginia grad transfer Tre Mitchell was in Lexington over the weekend making a visit to Kentucky. The Wildcats are considered a favorite to land the veteran forward, with John Calipari slowly but surely adding one piece at a time to this fall’s roster.
There are a lot of perks that favor a transfer to Kentucky. With the departure of multiple frontcourt players and the limited information provided on Aaron Bradshaw’s foot injury, Mitchell would be able to step in to heavy minutes right away. Kentucky plays in as many national TV games as any program in the country and has an obvious history of getting players to the NBA.
While all signs point to Mitchell wearing Kentucky blue this fall, there could be one reason he stays put in Morgantown. West Virginia named Josh Eilert as their interim head coach on Saturday. This announcement led to guard Kerr Kriisa withdrawing from the transfer portal and returning to the Mountaineers.
Mitchell spent his first two years of college at UMass before transferring to Texas for a season and wrapping up his fourth year at WVU. He has one year of eligibility remaining.
After averaging 18 points per game at UMass, Mitchell’s scoring dipped off to eight PPG at Texas before escalating back up to over 11 PPG for the Mountaineers. The 6-foot-9 forward would bring another body to Kentucky’s frontcourt and a veteran presence to their locker room.
Hopefully, it wraps up soon.
