Kentucky transfer Aaron Bradshaw sets official visit with Ohio State

There is always the possibility that Aaron Bradshaw could remove his name from the transfer portal and make a return to Kentucky to play for new head coach Mark Pope. But as of right now, the 7-foot-1 center is going to continue to explore his options.

According to Travis Branham of 247Sports, Bradshaw is set to take an official visit to Ohio State this weekend.

Bradshaw, who averaged 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds on 57.6 percent shooting in 13.7 minutes per game as a freshman at Kentucky this past season, entered his name into the portal on Monday. He also plans to test the NBA Draft waters.

News of Bradshaw’s intentions to enter the portal didn’t come as much of a shock to the Big Blue Nation. After recovering from offseason foot surgery that forced him to miss the first few weeks of the season, the former five-star recruit played sparingly during his rookie campaign in Lexington. That was especially true over the last month of the season, as Bradshaw saw just six minutes per contest across his final nine games played.

But as mentioned, Bradshaw was a five-star prospect out of high school and one with unlimited potential. He’ll certainly have plenty of suitors in the portal (following John Calipari to Arkansas is reportedly an option, but not a lock by any means). On3’s Jamie Shaw reported on Thursday that, along with Ohio State, the likes of Southern California, Rutgers, and Indiana will all be in the mix.

Will Bradshaw be open to the idea of sticking with Kentucky and playing under Pope? Will another school snag him out of the portal? Or will he ultimately pursue his NBA dreams? All options are on the table.
