The sophomore point guard averaged 14.0 points and 7.4 assists last season.

Last season Wheeler was named to the All-SEC Second Team, putting up 14 points and a conference-leading 7.4 assists. Wheeler entered the portal back on April 20th, and it appears Kentucky has been at the top of his list ever since.
Jack Pilgrim spoke with Wheeler back on April 28 about his decision.
“Hopefully next year, when I choose a destination that I feel comfortable with as the right situation, I’m going to prove that some more on a bigger stage and on a higher level. Hopefully, that can catapult me to the next level, get in the NBA conversation,” Wheeler told KSR. “… Big stage, being able to contend for a national championship, Final Four, playing style, playing fit, all those things are factors I’ll consider when making my decision.”
When listing his top four on an IGTV video a little over a week ago, Wheeler and his father both raved about Kentucky while profiling the school, calling it “the highest level, the highest stage.”
Will Coach Cal get yet another transfer tomorrow? Stay tuned.
