FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas men’s basketball has inked former four-star and Texas A&M transfer Jaxson Robinson, head coach Eric Musselman announced. Robinson hails from Ada., Okla., and scored 30 points in 14 games with four starts for the Aggies last season.
“We are extremely excited about Jaxson joining our program,” Musselman said. “Jaxson was high on our recruiting list while he was in high school and many Power 5 schools went after Jaxson once he entered the transfer portal. He has tremendous upside and potential. He has deep range and is a knockdown shooter. We feel as though he will really fit in well with the other players on the roster.”
