Kentucky Wildcats Red Shirt senior guard CJ Fredrick has announced that he has entered the transfer portal this offseason. The sharpshooter guard spent his first two seasons with the Iowa Hawkeyes before he transferred to the Wildcats. He suffered an injury and missed the entirety of his junior season, but did play for Kentucky this past season as a senior. Because of the injury and the impact the Coronavirus had on the 2020-21 college basketball season, he has two years of college eligibility left for the program he commits to during the offseason.

This past season as a senior for the Kentucky Wildcats, CJ Fredrick averaged 6.1 points, 0.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 35.1 percent and a three-point percentage of 31.8 percent. Thus far in his college basketball career, Fredrick’s numbers have trended down each of his three years playing college basketball. This season coming back from the injury, he didn’t quite look the same from his days with the Hawkeyes. The hope for him is that he can get back on track during the 2023-24 college basketball season with a fresh start and with a new program.
