There’s lots of talk out of Pittsburgh that 6’9 freshman Khem Birch is transferring. It’s just rumor at this point but the university declined comment when asked about Birch’s future so that tells you a little bit right there. People close to the program believe Birch is gone and he’ll likely end up at Kentucky.
Birch was ESPN Recruiting’s No. 1 center in the class of 2011, ahead of Andre Drummond. He was also considering Syracuse, North Carolina, and the Cayts when he committed to Pitt in September of 2010.
Keep an eye on this one.
