Wheeler played in 21 games for Kentucky in 2022, averaging a little over seven points per game. Wheeler also had 2.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game.
The Bulldogs are familiar with Wheeler. Wheeler spent the first two seasons of his college career in Athens.
Wheeler played in 57 total games while at Georgia, averaging a career-high in points per game (14) during the 2020-21 season.
The Wildcats advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament before eventually losing to Kansas State 75-69. Kansas State made it all the way to Elite Eight before losing to FAU.
Georgia finished the year with a 16-16 record under first year head coach Mike White. The Bulldogs lost in the first round of the SEC Tournament to LSU 72-67.
If Wheeler does end up committing to Georgia hoops, it would be a nice replacement for Kario Oquendo. Oquendo declared for the 2023 NBA Draft and entered the transfer portal in March.
