The 6'7" forward told ESPN he would be hiring an agent and staying in the draft.
Whitney withdrew from Kentucky in January after playing in only 18 games where he averaged only 3 points and 2 rebounds in 13 minutes per game.
Whitney came to Kentucky as ESPN's 12th overall recruit in the Class of 2019. Now, he's the 80th projected prospect by ESPN for the 2020 draft.
