One And Done: Kentucky’s Cam’Ron Fletcher Enters Transfer Portal

He was supposed to be a player who would help Kentucky stay near the top. He ended up getting thrown off the team … and then eventually welcomed back.

And now, Kentucky freshman Cam’Ron Fletcher has decided to play elsewhere, after deciding to enter college basketball’s transfer portal.

The 6-foot-6 small forward appeared in just nine games for the Wildcats, whose disappointing season has reached an end after a loss to Mississippi State in the first round of the SEC tournament.

“Although this season did not go the way any of us wanted to, being a part of the Kentucky men’s basketball program has been a great experience,” Fletcher said in a statement. “I would like to thank all of my coaches and teammates and especially the Big Blue Nation for making my time here so special. I grew so much this season, not only on the court but as a man and I’ll be forever thankful for this opportunity.”

Fletcher averaged 1.7 points and 1.7 rebounds after entering Kentucky as one of the top 100 high school prospects.

“Cam came so far as a teammate and as a player this season,” Calipari said in the statement. “He improved in all areas and I wish he would have had more opportunities to show everything he worked on. He matured as a person this season and I know he will have great success in whatever path he chooses. I support his decision and I will do anything to help him with his career.”

  1. all these young fellas have no idea that lebron is crushing the league they hope to go to and get rich.

    the NBA is an unwatchable style of game right now with scores never staying under the average allstar game.

    these young athletes have no idea that major sport may never be what it was in money and fame. and the NBA is a joke.
