LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer is transferring to find a ``significant'' role elsewhere.
The 6-foot-10 Wiltjer played with the Canadian national team this summer, posted a letter on Kentucky's athletic department website Monday afternoon, saying he will seek a situation to help him ``compete the way I know I can. ... wherever that may be.''
He had announced in April he would return to Kentucky for his junior season. Wiltjer said Monday he has some ``new and adjusted goals.''
Wildcats coach John Calipari expressed disappointment over Wiltjer's decision but wished him luck on his website.
The Oregon native, whose father is a Canadian, was named the Southeastern Conference's top reserve after averaging 10.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
Kentucky has eight incoming freshmen, including six McDonald's All-Americans.
