Killeya-Jones announced earlier this offseason that he was transferring out of Kentucky’s program. The former five-star recruit has two years of eligibility remaining.
The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds a game for Kentucky in 2017-18. He averaged 13.7 minutes a contest.
Killeya-Jones was the No. 23 overall recruit in the country coming out of high school in 2016. He committed to Kentucky over North Carolina, among other programs.
The talented forward will likely have to sit out the 2018-19 season, barring an NCAA waiver. He’ll then be eligible to play in 2019-20.
