From everything I have gathered it basically involved how he was being used by Cal. He has the skills but his game isn't going to be utilized at Kentucky as it would at say Gonzaga (which is where I figure he will end up). Wiltjer needs a system that plays to his strengths and masks his weaknesses (defense) and playing in the dribble drive exposed him.
Still, it does sting though. He was one of the players I hoped would stay and could take a veteran leadership role on a team with new faces. If he doesn't end up at Gonzaga I could see him in an Oregon Duck uniform as well.
