The first domino from John Calipari’s reported transition to Arkansas has fallen, setting up what will be an incredibly interesting offseason from an SEC perspective with all of the unexpected movement.

Kentucky freshman forward Aaron Bradshaw officially hit the portal Monday before noon, according to a report from 247 Sports’ Travis Branham.

Bradshaw played in 26 of Kentucky’s 33 games this season with 10 starts across the year. The Roselle, N.J., native averaged 4.9 points (57.6 FG%) and 3.3 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game on the court.

Bradshaw stacked up minutes early in the season during the December and January months but saw his court time take a hit late in the season. Bradshaw played 16 minutes in Kentucky’s first game against Tennessee in Lexington this season and recorded three fouls, two points, and one viral moment with Tobe Awaka.

Bradshaw only played two minutes and did not record a basket in Kentucky’s second game against Tennessee this past season in early March.

Aaron Bradshaw was the No. 5 overall player and the No. 1 center in the class of 2023.

After coaching in Lexington since 2009, John Calipari is now set to take over as the head coach at the University of Arkansas, replacing former head coach Eric Musselman. Tennessee fans will join college basketball fans around the country in waiting to see who Kentucky will now bring in to be the head coach of the Wildcats program.
