Could John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats add another graduate transfer to the 2019-2020 roster? It appears they are going to try.


On Tuesday, Virginia Tech’s Kerry Blackshear entered the transfer portal. He plans to transfer for his final season of eligibility after he explores his options in the NBA.


Blackshear, a 6-foot-10 forward, averaged 14.9 points and 7.5 rebounds for Virginia Tech last season. The Hokies former coach, Buzz Williams, left for Texas A&M two weeks ago, so Blackshear is open to playing elsewhere.


As for possibly playing in Rupp Arena, Blackshear has already experienced that and he was successful. Blackshear scored 18 points in the Hokies loss at Rupp Arena in December 2017.


According to multiple sources, Kentucky reached out and inquired about adding Blackshear for next season.
