The top graduate transfer in the nation will visit the University of Kentucky this week.

According to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.com, Virginia Tech forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. will officially visit Kentucky starting on Tuesday.

KSR’s own Matt Jones also confirmed the news:

Blackshear, listed at 6-foot-11 and 250 pounds, was a second team All-ACC selection last season, averaging 14.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He also led the Hokies with 28 blocked shots and ranked third with 83 assists.

Before his visit to Kentucky, Blackshear has already visited Florida, Arkansas, and Tennessee.

      So you want to play in the league. This is where we separate ourselves from the others on his list.

    If what that report said earlier about us UT and A&M being the 3 finalist is true, then I really like our chances. I thought it would be Florida.

    Considering that Florida couldn’t get a commitment out of him on his visit there, this is a great sign.

    This could be one of the biggest decisions for UK sports in quiet a while. We have one title in the last 20 years and he may be the difference between a title and an Elite 8. Come on Cal, do your magic.

      2 titles in 20 years.

      2019 minus 20 years = 1999. UK only has one basketball title since 1999. The title in 1998 would be 21 years ago. Thus making CatManDo’s statement correct.
