I am grateful for the time I spent at West Virginia, and the lessons that I learned. I’ve spent a lot of time praying to God to help me make the best decision for my future. I am excited for this new chapter of my life. I will continue my career at the University of Kentucky #BBN pic.twitter.com/rm08UwtDBI

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.
