Kentucky adds Iowa transfer CJ Fredrick

Former Iowa shooting guard CJ Fredrick has transferred to Kentucky, the program announced Wednesday.

After two seasons in Iowa City, Frederick will have three years of eligibility at Kentucky and be immediately eligible thanks in part to the NCAA’s one-time free transfer rule due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With the Hawkeyes, Fredrick started 25 games as a freshman in 2019-20 and 27 games last year. His minutes and production ticked down a bit from his freshman year: He put up 7.5 points and 1.9 assists per game in 24.7 minutes last season after averaging 10.2 points, 2.8 assists and 28.7 minutes per game as a freshman.

Fredrick’s strong suit is his outside shooting. He has shot 46.6 percent from the 3-point arc during his Iowa career, including 47.4 percent in his sophomore campaign.

After Kentucky missed the 2021 NCAA Tournament, coach John Calipari and the Wildcats are rebuilding through the transfer portal.

Since February the program has also landed highly rated transfers Oscar Tshiebwe (West Virginia) and Kellan Grady (Davidson). Kentucky lost some of its freshman stars, Brandon Boston Jr. and Isaiah Jackson, to the NBA draft, and senior Davion Mintz opted to explore the draft this week as well rather than use his extra year of NCAA eligibility.
