Arkansas Razorbacks sophomore guard Jaxson Robinson has announced he will transfer to the BYU Cougars. He began his career at Texas A&M and will need to be granted a waiver to play this upcoming season for the Cougars. With the immense amount of talent coming into the Razorback program it was likely that Robinson would have an even smaller role on the roster next year. That is not even considering the scholarship problem Arkansas would have had if he stayed with the program.
Arkansas transfer Jaxson Robinson has committed to BYU, he told @Stadium. The former Top 100 recruit began his career at Texas A&M before spending last season at Arkansas. Nice addition for Mark Pope and the Cougars.

As a sophomore with the Arkansas Razorbacks in just 10.2 minutes per game, Jaxson Robinson averaged 3.4 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 38.0 percent and a three-point percentage of 32.6 percent. Robinson did not miss a free throw this year going three for three from the charity stripe. While his role hasn’t quite expanded with either program perhaps it can with the BYU Cougars when he plays with the program.

BYU will be making the jump to the Big 12 soon and landing former top 100 talent from the SEC should help make that transition easier when it happens. Jaxson Robinson had plenty of talent coming out of high school and perhaps needed a different scheme and place to thrive on the court. Head Coach Mark Pope knows how to get the best out of his players on the court.
