Kentucky's off-season of upheaval continues with commitment of star Georgia guard Sahvir Wheeler

Kentucky coach John Calipari has put together one of the single most impressive off-season roster upheavals in recent history, as he added a fourth marquee transfer to the Wildcats roster for next season on Monday. That came via the commitment of former Georgia guard Sahvir Wheeler, who committed to the Wildcats over fellow finalists, Kansas, LSU and Oklahoma State.


Wheeler is a dynamic, 5'10 point guard who led the Bulldogs in scoring last season, while also dishing out an SEC-best 7.4 assists per game. He did turn the ball over nearly four times a game and doesn't shoot well, but surrounded by other elite talent, should see some of those numbers - including assists - continue to improve.


He is the fourth marquee transfer Kentucky has added this off-season, a list which includes Davidson's Kellan Grady (a three-time All-A10 performer), Iowa's CJ Fredrick (who shot over 46 percent from three last season) and West Virginia's Oscar Tshiebwe, who is a former McDonald's All-American down low.


The Wildcats also added five-star combo guard TyTy Washington last week.
