One of the nation's best recruits from the 2017 cycle announced his plans to leave his college program after two years. Kentucky announced former five-star point guard recruit Quade Green was leaving the Wildcats after one and a half seasons with the program.

News broke early just over a week ago that Green was considering a move. Kentucky didn't wait long to confirm the news.

Green gave the following statement about the move:

"I have loved my time at Kentucky and love Coach Cal and the staff. This was a difficult decision and one I didn't take lightly. However, after talking with my family and the coaching staff, I just felt like it was best that I explore other opportunities for my athletic and academic future."

After just a week on the transfer market, Green has reportedly made his transfer decision. The former five-star point guard recruit is headed to Washington.

Green averaged 17.8 minutes per game this year, down from 25.6 minutes per contest last year.

The former Philadelphia high school star considered Villanova and Syracuse during his recruitment before signing with John Calipari and the Wildcats.

Now he'll head to Washington program that currently sits 7-4 on the season.
