Arkansas loses guard to Transfer Portal

·1 min read

Arkansas guard Jaxson Robinson will look to play for his third college in as many seasons, as he has entered the transfer portal.

Transferring to Arkansas from Texas A&M following the 2020-21 season, Robinson made 16 appearances this season for the Razorbacks with four starts. Two highlights of his season included career-high 15 minutes played against Central Arkansas on December 1, and scoring a career-best 14 points against Elon on December 21.

Moving to the transfer portal could be considered costly for Robinson. Not only is this his second time transferring, but he entered the portal after the May 1 deadline.

Players have until May 1 to enter the portal, and be eligible to play the following season. But, since Robinson entered on May 12, he will need a waiver in order to become eligible to play in the 2022-23 season. If his waiver is not approved, Robinson will not only have to sit out a season, but will have to use a season of eligibility as well.

Since the season ended for Arkansas in the Elite 8, four Razorbacks have entered the transfer portal with three players finding a new home. Forward Chance Moore announced on April 11 his intent to transfer to Missouri State. Connor Vanover is headed to Oral Roberts, and KK Robinson is staying in the SEC by moving on to Texas A&M.
