In the “double take” news of the day, former Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer graduated early from Gonzaga today. Wiltjer still has two years of eligibility left for the Zags after sitting out this past season because of transfer rules. Wiltjer won an NCAA title for the Big Blue in 2012, before a lackluster Sophomore season had the big fella ready to return closer to his Western United States home.
I for one am impressed that he could pull off graduating so quickly. I still am trying to comprehend how he pulled off the feat, especially considering that he hasn’t played in a single game for the Zags, but instead I’ll congratulate him like other members of the BBN.
.@kwiltj graduated today. Wow! What a great thing. Ellen and I are proud of him and continue to follow him closely.
