Earlier this week, Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer shocked the college basketball world when he wrote a letter to Big Blue Nation informing them that he was considering a transfer. Fans immediately took the “he’s gone” mentality and took to Twitter to try to convince him to stay with the program.
Well, it appears that he may be having second thoughts. Today, Coach Calipari was at Kentucky Speedway to drive the pace car for the Quaker State 400 (unfortunately, the race got postponed until tomorrow) and shed a little light on the situation. Here’s what he apparently told Bob Pockrass, who covers NASCAR for Sporting News:
For #uk fans & @tsnmike …Calipari – today’s prerace pace-car driver – said he texted with Kyle Wiltjer today and still unsure on transfer.

This situation is obviously very fluid still, but it seems as if Wiltjer may be having a few second thoughts. My guess is that we’ll know more on the situation fairly soon.
