Reports: Wiltjer heading to Gonzaga
Former Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer, who was named the SEC’s Sixth Man of the Year, will transfer to Gonzaga, according to multiple reports.
Wiltjer, who will sit out this season due to NCAA rules regarding transfers, was a sought-after recruit coming out of Beaverton, Ore. The 6-foot-10, 239-pound sophomore averaged 10.2 points and 4.2 rebounds last season.
Wiltjer, who was part of Kentucky’s 2012 national title-winning team, lost his starting spot last season with the Wildcats and probably would have seen his playing time cut further thanks to Kentucky bringing in six McDonald’s All-Americans.
