Kentucky Wildcats sophomore big man Daimion Collins has announced that he has entered the transfer portal this offseason. The former top high school recruit has never quite cracked the rotation in the way that was expected in his two seasons with the Wildcats. Collins was expected to have a breakout season this past year, but his numbers actually went down from his freshman year with the team. It appears the now former Wildcats’ big man needs a change of scenery where he can perhaps have a bigger role on the court.

This past season as a sophomore with the Kentucky Wildcats, Daimion Collins averaged 1.9 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 0.2 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 42.5 percent and a free throw percentage of 61.9 percent. Collins was a top recruit coming out of high school but for several reasons never seemed to really crack the Kentucky rotation. Despite that, he should have plenty of programs interested in him for the 2023-24 college basketball season. The hope for the big man is that he will be able to better establish himself and perform much better while with his next program.
