Washington appears to be in good position to land former Kentucky point guard Sahvir Wheeler in the transfer portal.

Wheeler is one of the most highly-regarded point guards in the portal this cycle. On Sunday evening, 247Sports Travis Branham filed a Crystal Ball projection in favor of the Huskies.

Wheeler began his career at Georgia before playing the past 2 seasons at Kentucky. He has 1 season of eligibility remaining.

For his career, Wheeler averages 10.1 points and 5.6 assists per contest. He also shot 36.6% from 3-point range last season, which was a career-high.

Wheeler would be a big addition for a Washington team that has lost several players from its 2022-23 team this offseason. Keyon Menifield, Tyler Linhardt, Cole Bajema, Jackson Grant and Langston Wilson are amongst the players who have departed this offseason.

Wheeler would presumably start for a Washington program next season that is desperate to make the NCAA Tournament. Washington has 1 NCAA Tournament appearance in the last 12 seasons.

There is no timetable for Wheeler’s official commitment.
