Our top story - UK junior forward Kyle Wiltjer announcing plans to leave the Kentucky program. Transferring to parts unknown.

In an open letter to fans, Wiltjer - who's spent the summer playing for the Canadian developmental team - writes quote:

New and adjusted goals require me to make some very difficult upcoming decisions ... He adds later:  I cannot stress enough how supportive Coach (Calipari) has been during this period. He is more than a coach to me, and for that i am forever grateful."

In response, coach Cal said Wiltjer felt he wants to play a more prominent role in another program than he may have had with UK and wished him the best of luck.

Cal also adds at the end of the note the door is not closed for Wiltjer to return to the program.
