Charles Matthews '15 Heads to University of Michigan

Charles Matthews '15 could have stayed at Kentucky. He appreciated being a part of one of college basketball's most storied programs. He enjoyed playing for legendary coach John Calipari. He admired the beauty of Kentucky's tradition-rich, 800-plus acre campus.

"I need to be an impact player and have an opportunity to produce like one," said Matthews, a 2015. St. Rita graduate. "I want the ball in big situations. I loved Kentucky and I loved the system we played. I didn't want to transfer. Coach Cal didn't want me to leave. But I needed a role change."
