Former Kentucky Wildcats forward Sacha Killeya-Jones is off to the ACC.

On tuesday, Killeya-Jones tweeted that he was joining the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

Killeya-Jones, who announced he will transfer in April, enjoyed an improved sophomore season, registering career highs in every statistical category, including minutes, points, free throws, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals.

For his career Killeya-Jones averaged, 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game while shooting at a 58.5-percent rate. He appeared in 49 total games during his career. He grabbed a career-high nine rebounds in UK’s Champions Classic matchup with Kansas in the third game of the 2017-18 season.

The 6-10 forward enjoyed a memorable performance at the 2018 SEC Tournament where he posted 16 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks over the three games. His put-back jam off of a Wenyen Gabriel missed three-ball in the final minute of the title game coupled with a block helped clinch a fourth-straight tournament title for the Cats.

Good luck to Killeya-Jones in his new ventures.
