A day after committing, Illinois State transfer Antonio Reeves has signed with Kentucky, the school announced Thursday.

“Big Blue Nation, I’m excited to get to Lexington and play on the biggest stage in college basketball,” Reeves said. “Coach Cal loves his players, he loves the game, has developed pros, and won a national championship. That’s what attracted me to Kentucky. It’s time to put in work and go for another natty.”

As a junior, Reeves averaged 20.1 points per game on his way to being a second-team Missouri Valley selection.

“I’m really excited about Antonio and what he can bring to our team,” John Calipari said. “He’s a veteran scorer who not only has the ability to knock down shots but can create off the dribble. I like that he’s shown the desire to work and improve his game which has then translated to demonstrated performance as he’s continued to elevate his game each year. When talking with Antonio, I loved more than anything that his number one goal was to be at a place with a winning culture, so he has the chance to chase a championship.”

Reeves has two years of eligibility remaining.
