Killeya-Jones, a native of Chapel Hill (NC.), will sit out the 2018-2019 season and use his available redshirt to save two remaining years of eligibility. Calipari brought Killeya-Jones to Kentucky as a member of a stellar 2016 recruiting class.
During his time at Kentucky, Killeya-Jones struggled to consistently see the floor. He struggled to sustain playing time until emerging as the Wildcats best option in postseason play. Ultimatey, Killeya-Jones decided a change of scenery is best for his future.
