While freshman guard Quade Green may indeed be contemplating a transfer, Kyle Tucker of SEC Country tweeted Thursday that a source told him he expected Green to stay at UK.
Tucker is not one to post information where he does not trust his source. In addition, Kentucky Sports Radio noted that a source indicated coach John Calipari had met with Green to tell him that he wants him back next season.
The theory was that Calipari was bringing in so many new guards that Green was worried about playing time next season. He had a solid freshman season and should be even better next year.
If he transfers, he won’t play next year. He will have to sit out all season — and I just don’t see Green being happy if he can’t play. He’s a player who always has believed in his ability and made that clear several times at last year — and normally backed up his talk.
Maybe Green will still transfer. But I tend to trust Tucker’s source, especially since that makes sense when you consider Green’s competitive personality.
