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.

The Kentucky Wildcats have been putting together an absolutely ridiculous recruiting class in Mark Stoops first year as the Wildcats head coach. Stoops has now upped the ante and added a third jersey for the wildcats to wear, an all grey one. The jersey itself looks phenomenal, the blue checkerboard on the shoulders looks great.
