Entering the 2021-22 season, Kentucky has become the top basketball transfer prospect in the market.
West Virginia center and former five-star star Oscar Tshiebwe (Oscar Tshiebwe) has promised to advance to Kentucky, choosing Illinois, Miami (FL) and North Carolina Wildcats instead of bidding and interest.
After ignoring the remaining time of the 2020-21 season, the latest Wildcat will start three years in the 2021-22 season.
Tshiebwe is a 6-foot-9, 260-pound center. He was originally outside of Congo. He averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in 10 games as a sophomore. He only entered the transfer portal last week. The former five-star star has an impressive 7-foot-5 wingspan. He averaged 11.2 points and 9.3 rebounds in freshman games, leading West Virginia to score and grab rebounds. This is the first year of the game. He won the honors of all 12 major league second teams and all freshman teams this season, as well as the honor of the best 12 preseason teams. CBS Sports ranks the former WVU Center as the 15th player in the college basketball rankings before the 2020-21 season.
Before going to Morgantown, Tshiebwe was rated as a five-star prospect by 247Sports and Rivals.com, who ranked outstanding centers as the 23rd and 26th recruits in the class of 2019, respectively. ESPN listed him as a four-star forward and ranked 48th in the class.
He was also named the McDonald’s National Champion in 2019. In this game, he won a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes.
At the legendary National Games, Zibwe told KSR that he loves British head coach John Calipari (John Calipari) and also likes basketball in Kentucky.
Tshiebwe said: “It was a difficult decision because I like Kentucky, and I like Coach Calipari.” “But I ended up in West Virginia because this is the (growing) school I thought about. I I like the way they play, the coach, and the show. That’s why I ended up there.”
If he doesn’t sign with the mountaineers, he will go to Lexington.
Coach Calipari told me, “I want to coach you! Come and play for me! I will guide you and help you become a great player. I will help you achieve your dreams. …Kentucky ranks second. “
It may not be right away, but Tshiebwe finally found a way to Lexington in a transfer two years later.
