Kentucky will have its shot at the top graduate transfer on the market.

According to recruiting insider Evan Daniels, Virginia Tech forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. is expected to visit Kentucky this week.

According to Daniels, Blackshear will be also be taking an official visit to Tennessee on June 14th after taking trips to Florida (unofficial) and Arkansas (official) last week. The 6-foot-11 big man is also considering Texas A&M, along with a potential return to Virginia Tech.

For the Hokies last season, Blackshear averaged 14.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He will be eligible to play immediately next year.

Bring him on home, Coach Cal.

    Well I read on the comment section here that he’s not coming here so we need to move on. So many “experts” we should listen to around here.

      My sources say he wants guaranteed playing time – something they don’t think will be promised at Ky…

    Why do I feel so certain that he is going to Tennessee. It must be that ewwwy Orange color that he used to wear for Va.Tech. It must put you in a trance. Or at least a dilapidated state!

    As he should, he will go wherever is best for him and his career. Probably he wants a lot of minutes and the offense to go through him. I’m not sure he is a great fit for this year’s KY team. I have no reason to back up my opinion, so it may be totally wrong. But my gut says he won’t be coming to UK.

    If he were to choose UK we could have the best front court and back court in college basketball. He could get a lot of exposure, get prepared for the NBA, and have a real shot at a national championship. The logical choice is UK, right? So, experience should tell us he’s going elsewhere. That being said, I hope I’m wrong.
