Former Wildcat Kyle Wiltjer talks to the Herald-Leader about his transfer, his relationship with John Calipari, and more in this piece over at Sportsnet. Consider:

So you had a monumental decision to make in choosing to leave Kentucky. I know you’ve talked about it before, but I’m curious as to who you turned to for advice while making your decision?

When I was going through that process, obviously my parents were a big help—they’re the closest to me. But I was actually talking to Coach Cal [Kentucky’s John Calipari] a lot, too. He was awesome through all of that, a big help. And that’s rare because a lot of coaches, if you asked to leave, they’d turn the other cheek and the decision would be on you. But he wanted me to be successful and wanted me to find the right fit as well.

I’m so glad Kyle is playing as well as he is for the Zags, and I’m so glad it worked out for him. I wish he were still here, but sometimes you just have to let go.

As he should be.
