As a Kentucky fan, you're use to an absolute 180 of the roster throughout the summer and come August having to learn new faces and new names as you watch the once-were Wildcats exit and find their paths post Kentucky. News is constantly breaking and it can be a lot to keep up with - trust me, we know - so we've created a list that tracks all the movement and it will be updated accordingly. Here is the status' as of today.
Jacob Toppin - Entering NBA Draft
CJ Fredrick - Entered the transfer portal - Cincinnati
Sahvir Wheeler - Entered transfer portal - Washington
Adou Thiero - Returning for sophomore season
Daimion Collins - Entered transfer portal
Antonio Reeves - Entering NBA Draft (testing)
Grant Darbyshire - Returning for sophomore season
Walker Horn - Returning for sophomore season
Brennan Canada - Returning for fifth year
Cason Wallace - Entering NBA Draft
Chris Livingston - Entering NBA Draft (testing)
Kareem Watkins - Returning for senior season
Ugonna Onyenso - Returning for sophomore season
Oscar Tshiebwe - Entering NBA Draft (testing)
Lance Ware - Entered transfer portal
While Adou Thiero, Grant Darbyshire (walk-on), Walker Horn (walk-on), and Kareem Watkins (walk-on) have not made announcements either way, I put what is their most likely route as of this afternoon. The consensus is that they all are expected to be here next year with nothing suggesting otherwise.
Antonio Reeves is very likely to return for a final year as well, per reports. Oscar becomes more likely by the day. Neither of the two have made official announcements yet.
Players that are testing the draft waters will have until May 31st to let their school know if they plan to return or stay in the NBA Draft.
