Share post:

Transfer guard Jaxson Robinson, who played for Mark Pope at BYU, is following his coach to Kentucky and withdrawing from the NBA draft pool.

Robinson, a four-star high school prospect from Oklahoma, began his college career in the Southeastern Conference at Texas A&M before moving on to Arkansas and then to BYU the last two seasons. He will play his final collegiate season in the SEC with the Wildcats.

Last season, the 6-foot-7 guard was the Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year and received All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors after averaging a career-high 14.2 points along with 2.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 33 games (six starts) for the Cougars.

Robinson scored 20 or more points in five games last season, including 25 in BYU’s first-round NCAA Tournament loss to Duquesne.

In four college seasons, Robinson has averaged 8.7 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 96 games (44 starts).

Robinson is the ninth transfer and sixth player with four years of college basketball experience to join Kentucky after Pope arrived to an empty roster.
