Kentucky men’s basketball transfer center Aaron Bradshaw committed to Ohio State on Monday, one week after he entered the transfer portal while testing NBA Draft waters.

He made the announcement on his Instagram page.

It was reported by 247Sports before noon on Monday, April 8, that the big man was leaving Lexington. He also released a statement on his personal social media.

Bradshaw did so after it was announced that head coach John Calipari would be leaving Lexington to take the Arkansas job. The big man spent one season in Lexington.

Initially committing as a five-star prospect — the No. 1 center in his class and No. 5 prospect overall — out of Camden High School with teammate D.J. Wagner, the future seemed bright for Bradshaw when he decided — at Big Blue Madness of all places — that he was destined to be a Cat.

Instead his debut was delayed when he suffered a foot injury during the GLOBL Jam tournament in Toronto over the summer.

When he finally did make his debut, his return coincided with his fellow Camden High teammate’s injury exit in Kentucky’s loss on its home court to UNC Wilmington.

He would continue to struggle to truly find his footing, averaging 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, dropping three of each in the Cats’ NCAA Tournament loss versus Oakland.

Confirming suspicions, Bradshaw will return to college for another season but it won’t be at Kentucky. At least for the 2024-25 season, Bradshaw is a Buckeye.
