In a bit of shocking news on Monday, Purdue center Matt Haarms entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.
A number of elite teams are sure to be in the mix for his services, and it is certainly possible that the Kentucky Wildcats join the list of squads contacting Haarms.

Haarms appeared in 29 games for Purdue this past season, starting 15 of them. He averaged 8.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game.
