Pilgrim the newest Wildcat?

Matt Pilgrim, a 6-foot-8 forward from Cincinnati, is reported to have enrolled at the University of Kentucky. Pilgrim is a transfer from Hampton University, where he averaged 10 points and five rebounds a game in two seasons.

Hoopsreport.com is reporting that Pilgrim has enrolled at the University of Kentucky for summer classes and earlier today was seen at Wildcat Lodge, according to its sources.

Pilgrim would not be eligible to play during the 2008-09 season, pursuant to NCAA rules requiring a transfer student to sit out one year in residency prior to being eligible at its new school. He would have two years of eligibility remaining, beginning during the 2009-10 season.
