Morgantown, West Virginia – Former four star recruit Akok Akok recently entered the transfer portal and has quickly become one of the hottest players available in college basketball.
Akok, a 6’10 210 pound junior who has played for Connecticut for the past three seasons, averaged 5.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game as a freshman for the Huskies before tearing his Achilles’ tendon. Last season, he averaged 3.4 points and 3.2 rebounds.
Out of high school, Akok was rated by 247 Sports as the 94th overall player in the country. He has already planned to visit Pitt and Georgetown, and will now visit West Virginia. He is an extremely talented defender and if healthy, would be a big addition for the Mountaineers.
UConn transfer Akok Akok now also plans to visit West Virginia, per his AAU coach. https://t.co/gZvjD2Kuzh
