Hours after Kentucky landed a commitment from five-star Class of 2018 power forward E.J. Montgomery, another former five-star in its projected frontcourt for next season, UK sophomore forward Sacha Killeya-Jones, announced he will request his release and seek opportunities to continue his career elsewhere.

"The past 2 years at Kentucky have been an amazing journey and I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates and fans who made it possible," he said on Twitter. "After much deliberation with my family, I have decided that it is in my best interest to ask for my release and explore other opportunities at this time."

Killeya-Jones arrived at Kentucky as a blue-chip prospect in part of UK's 2016 recruiting class. He was ranked as a top-25 player in the class, and the No. 10 prospect at his position.

After two seasons though, Killeya-Jones was never able to really break in to John Calipari's full-time roster rotation. He averaged 10 minutes and 3 points per contest in two campaigns at Kentucky.
