That didn’t take long. After arriving on campus for his official visit earlier this week, Bucknell grad transfer Nate Sestina has committed to Kentucky. The 6’9″, 245 lbs. forward just announced the news on Twitter:
It’s been an amazing ride from Emporium to Bucknell and everywhere in between, and it’s surreal to think my college basketball career isn’t over yet.

Sestina averaged 15.8 points (53.6% shooting, 38% from three, 80.8% from the free throw line), 8.7 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game last year for the Bison and scored in double figures in 27 of his 31 games. He was named Second Team All-Patriot League and was a Patriot League All-Tournament selection.
Kentucky can’t mention Sestina by name until the paperwork’s done, but confirmed the news with a video of a boy watching Reid Travis, another grad transfer, play:
