Kentucky 7-foot-1 freshman Aaron Bradshaw, a former five-star recruit, will enter the transfer portal, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The reports came hours after the news that head coach John Calipari is finalizing a deal to become the new coach at Arkansas.

Bradshaw played in 26 games (10 starts) under Calipari this season, averaging 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game.

Calipari landed Bradshaw out of Camden, N.J. The 247Sports composite listed Bradshaw as the No. 1 center and No. 4 overall player in the 2023 class.

Later Monday, Kentucky lost incoming five-star forward Karter Knox, who decommitted from the Wildcats and could follow Calipari to Arkansas, according to multiple reports.

The younger brother of NBA player Kevin Knox was ranked No. 19 overall in the Class of 2024 by the 247Sports composite and the No. 6 small forward.
