Former Kentucky freshman Jordan Burks committed to Georgetown on Wednesday after being the final scholarship Cat to enter the transfer portal following John Calipari’s departure.

Burks made his announcement public on social media, releasing a video with the caption, “When God say move I don’t question it #committed”.

A former three-star recruit out of Arizona, Burks was unable to carve out the role he would have liked on the Cats’ roster after being forced to play big with all three seven footers facing injuries or eligibility concerns.

Shifting back into his traditional role when they returned, Burks saw his minutes decrease over the course of the season.

His zenith would come on February 6 on the road against Vanderbilt when he dropped 13 points. The game would go down as his only double-digit scoring game of the season.

When the dust had settled, Burks averaged 1.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game.

He entered the transfer portal in mid to late April, the news of which was made public by Jamie Shaw of On3.

Heading to Georgetown, Burks will join former Providence head coach Ed Cooley in the DMV.
