One week after he announced his transfer from the University of Kentucky, freshman forward Kahlil Whitney appears to be favoring a shot at the pros.

In the article posted by Daniels, he mentions that Whitney and his camp originally listened to calls from several other colleges. In the public announcement put out by Whitney on his initial decision, he never explicitly stated whether or not he would transfer or go pro. Seven days later, it sounds like the five-star recruit and former McDonald’s All-American is leaning towards the NBA.
Prior to his decision to transfer, Whitney’s minutes had seen a considerable decline over the past few weeks. He averaged 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 18 total games – eight of them as a starter. However, he averaged just 6.1 minutes over his last seven games as a Wildcat.
