Baylor gets big news via the transfer portal on Wednesday

Big news in the transfer portal at Baylor, where guard James Akinjo has officially been cleared to play next season.


Akinjo was an All-Pac 12 guard at Arizona last season averaging just under 16 points and 5.5 assists, but decided to leave the school following Sean Miller's firing. However, because this was Akinjo's second transfer (he began his career at Georgetown) there was no guarantee he would be eligible to play next season.


However, after receiving an NCAA waiver, Akinjo is good to go, and the Bears have their starting point guard to replace Davion Mitchell.
