NC State lands Kentucky transfer Sacha Killeya-Jones

Sacha Killeya-Jones announced last month that he meant to transfer from Kentucky, and now that transfer destination is known.

The Chapel Hill, North Carolina, native was unable to make much of an impact with the Wildcats, though.

Killeya-Jones was a 5-star prospect coming out of high school, but he didn't quite catch on at Kentucky, averaging 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 48 games the past two years.

Sacha Killeya-Jones has found a college basketball destination.

Killeya-Jones became the second transfer that Keatts has added this week, as graduate transfer guard Eric Lockett reportedly joined the Pack Monday.

"The past two years at Kentucky have been an fantastic journey and I want to thank all my coaches, teammates and fans who made it possible", Killeya-Jones said.

While the Killeya-Jones addition is a big one for the Wolfpack moving forward, it does create a logistical problem in Raleigh.

Killeya-Jones will sit out the 2018-19 season and then have two years of eligibility remaining.

NC State signed Immanuel Bates, the No. 12 center in 247Sports' composite rankings, but size remains a clear area of need for the team.
