Ex-Wake Forest center Olivier Sarr transferring to Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Former Wake Forest center Olivier Sarr said Wednesday he is transferring to Kentucky, giving the Wildcats an experienced 7-footer after the team's entire starting lineup declared for the NBA draft.

"He gives us a veteran, established player who has not only played on a big stage and played well, he wants this next challenge," Kentucky coach John Calipari said in a statement.

Sarr, a 255-pound junior from France, told ESPN last week he had entered the transfer portal. In his announcement on Twitter, he called former Demon Deacons coach Danny Manning and his staff "family" and added, "I just didn't feel like I could be at my best by returning to Wake Forest."
