Kentucky five-star Sacha Killeya-Jones announced on Twitter this afternoon that he's made his decision.

"The past 2 years at Kentucky have been an incredible journey and I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates, and fans who made it all possible", Killeya-Jones wrote on April 9.

The 6-foot-10 center is from Chapel Hill and got very limited playing time at Kentucky.

Killeya-Jones didn't match his billing at Kentucky and averaged 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds as a sophomore.

State also added a graduate transfer, guard Eric Lockett from Florida International, according to ESPN.com and the (Raleigh) News & Observer.

SKJ will have to sit out this season, due to NCAA transfer rules, but he'll have two years of eligibility remaining when he takes the court again in 2019-20.

"The past two years at Kentucky have been an wonderful journey and I want to thank all my coaches, teammates and fans who made it possible", Killeya-Jones said.

One of the top transfers in college basketball is no longer on the market.

NC State signed Immanuel Bates, the No. 12 center in 247Sports' composite rankings, but size remains a clear area of need for the team.
