The Kentucky Wildcats‘ outstanding start to 2021 just got better as West Virginia center and five-star recruit Oscar Tshiebwe announced he will transfer to UK and join the Cats next season.

Tshiebwe averaged 11.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and one block per game as a freshman last season. He earned Big 12 All-Freshman team and All-Big 12 Second-Team honors.

He played in 10 games this season in which he averaged 8.5 points with 7.8 rebounds before opting to enter the transfer portal.

Next season he’ll join a UK front court that will include incoming freshman Daimion Collins and figures to return some of their forwards from this season as Keion Brooks, Lance Ware and Isaiah Jackson all will have NBA decisions to make that could lead them back to Lexington.
