Report: Kentucky Freshman Charles Matthews Will Transfer

Kentucky guard Charles Matthews, who played sparingly for the Wildcats during his freshman year, will transfer from the university, according to multiple reports. Matthews, who averaged just 1.7 points and 1.6 rebounds per contest in 2015-2016, reportedly wants to be more of a "scorer" than an "energy guy." The news was first reported by KSR's Matt Jones, and later confirmed by Scout's Evan Daniels.

Matthews will be give a full release by the school - meaning UK will not restrict his transfer options.

There's no word on where Matthews will land ahead of next season. Per NCAA rules, he'll likely have to sit out a year before returning to the floor.
