Sacha Killeya-Jones to visit three ACC schools, maybe more

Sacha Killeya-Jones has yet to find a new home to continue his college basketball career.

The former Kentucky big man, who announced his transfer soon after this past season, began the search for new opportunities this week.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, Killeya-Jones will visit NC State tonight and tomorrow. From there, he will check out Jeff Capel’s program and the campus at Pittsburgh this coming weekend, followed by a visit to Wake Forest over Memorial Day weekend.

The University of North Carolina is also on Killeya-Jones’ radar, but a visit to Chapel Hill has not been scheduled at this time.

Other schools reportedly in consideration include Arizona State, Clemson, Georgetown, Nevada, Notre Dame and Texas.

    Just a dumb decision all around. There’s literally no positive for him in this scenario. He’ll have to sit a year and get one season of playing time. He could have stayed at Kentucky and developed his game while being featured on primetime television. We actually need larger players in the upcoming season. Now he will go who knows where and there’s no guarantee he will even be granted prime playing time in two seasons.

      Unless of course something exists behind the scenes we aren’t privy to. That’s the only logical–and vague explanation I can think of.

    SKJ is dead to me.

    Not a big fan of his decision, but I want what’s best for the kid. Hopefully he finds a place to play near his home (that’s not Duke or UNC)

    Would love to see SKJ do well at an ACC school. At least he could still beat UL a few times each year.

    I hate that he transferred but can also say that I don’t blame him for it, he waited at UK long enough being a 5 ? players himself outta high school and desearved to start this year over Richards, plain and simple. I understand his decision even though I don’t like it, and I don’t blame him, Coach unfortunately has to bear the blame for this taking place.

      Agree. The kid should have seen the floor more. Nice shot from the elbow or baseline but wasn’t one if Cal’s favs.

      RIchards average ~10 minutes a game.

      SKJ got hurt then got out of the rotation.

      Waiting long enough? For what? Anyone who thinks we make it farther than the Sweet 16 with SKJ play a greater role is swerving.

    Was hoping he’d end up back at UVA where he originally committed, looks like that isn’t in the cards, too bad.

    More than anything else, this shows the flaws in the high school player evaluation ranking system. A 5 star for SKJ was way too optimistic and he will not meet the expectations of that ranking. Good luck to him on the bench, wherever he goes.

      I’m sure you thought Charles Matthews would ride the bench wherever he went too. Let’s just let the dude live his life.
