According to a report from On3 Sports, Arkansas transfer Jaxson Robinson has committed to join head coach Mark Pope at BYU as the program’s second offseason transfer addition.
Robinson joins the Cougars after reclassifying up to 2020 to spend his freshman season at Texas A&M before a transfer last year would send the Oklahoma native to Arkansas. With the Razorbacks, Robinson would average only 3.4 PPG and 1.3 RPG while struggling for minutes leading to a search for his third program this offseason.
This being Robinson’s second transfer as an undergraduate and having entered the transfer portal after the May 1 deadline, he’ll require an NCAA waiver to be eligible for next season. However, early reports have suggested Robinson will most likely be able to acquire this waiver as Arkansas added transfers following the May 1 deadline that essentially forced Robinson out.
Robinson should arrive in Provo with three years of eligibility remaining should he receive a waiver and will be a huge addition to this Cougars squad after receiving interest from several other major programs including Mississippi State, Missouri State, Troy, Georgia Tech, and more.
Along with Coastal Carolina transfer Rudi Williams who averaged 14.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 3.2 APG last season, Robinson will help with backcourt duties primarily as a shooting guard with the four-star prospect known as an elite three-point shooter in high school which he showcased in flashes for Arkansas shooting 33% from deep as a sophomore.
