Kyle Wiltjer announced his intention to transfer from Kentucky in an open letter to Big Blue Nation earlier today.
Wiltjer, a standout high school player when he was recruited by John Calipari, will have to take a season off in compliance with the NCAA’s rules on transferring schools, but he will have two years of eligibility remaining after his redshirt season.
“I want to find a situation that will help me [develop physically] as well as play a more significant role," Wiltjer said.
While many schools will line up to bring the stretch 4 into their program, there may be no team more suited to Wiltjer's wants and needs than Gonzaga.
Here are five reasons why Gonzaga is the ultimate landing spot for the Kentucky transfer.
