Kentucky point guard Sahvir Wheeler has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft and will play for the Wildcats this fall, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman reported Saturday.

Wheeler, who transferred from Georgia, is another boost to John Calipari’s program following news in recent days that leading scorer Davion Mintz, who also tested the NBA Draft process in recent weeks, but opted to return to Kentucky for the 2021-22 season.

This is not necessarily a surprise after Wheeler announced in April that he was entering the transfer portal and testing the NBA draft. About a month later, Wheeler said that if he returned to college, he would be transferring from Georgia to Kentucky.

Wheeler last year led the SEC and ranked in the top five nationally in assists per game. Listed as a 5-foot-10 guard from Houston, Wheeler averaged 11.3 points and 5.8 assists per game in 57 career games with the Bulldogs. Wheeler will have three seasons of eligibility.

“I chose the University of Kentucky because it gives me the best opportunity to make a run at a national championship and pursue my dreams of playing in the NBA,” Wheeler said. “I can’t wait to get to Lexington and get to work.”

Wheeler is the fourth transfer Kentucky has added to its roster for next season in the last four and a half months.
