John Calipari is considering several backcourt options from the NCAA’s overcrowded transfer portal and we can now add former Georgia point guard Sahvir Wheeler to the list of potential targets on Calipari’s big board.
Wheeler’s list of contact since announcing his departure from Georgia includes the University of Kentucky, reports Jeff Borzello and Jeff Goodman. He plans to cut the list next week, says Borzello, and he wants to go somewhere where he can play in a Final Four, says Goodman.
Wheeler also heard from Kansas, Gonzaga, Oklahoma State, Michigan, LSU, Texas, Oregon State, Stanford and Wichita State. He threw his name into the NBA Draft for good measure too, but is expected to play another season of college basketball.
The SEC’s best facilitator, the 5-10 guard led the conference in assists with over seven per game. He also averaged 14 points to lead the Bulldogs, earning him All-SEC Second Team honors in his sophomore season.
