James Akinjo: UConn's Next Star Point Guard
For a program known for its stellar lineage of point guard play, UConn has its star floor general of the future in James Akinjo. All it took was an official visit over the weekend.
Perhaps no prospect in the country had a bigger summer than the 6-foot Akinjo, who stuffed the stat sheet with 18.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and a tournament-high 6.8 assists per game to help lead the Oakland Soldiers (CA) to the coveted Nike Peach Jam title.
With strong defense, a solid and improving jumper, and tons of confidence, Akinjo is a true competitor who is the ideal start to head coach Kevin Ollie’s 2018 class and will boost the Huskies in their multiple-guard lineups in the years to come.
