North Richmond native and Salesian College Prep basketball star James Akinjo is no longer committed to attending the University of Connecticut after the Huskies fired its coach, Kevin Ollie.
On Monday, the four-star guard’s guardian, Rachel Jackson, posted a Tweet confirming that UConn had granted Akinjo a full release without penalty from the Letter of Intent.
Though it is unknown where Akinjo may end up, there are several media reports about reputable schools interested in him. For example, the Wichita Eagle reported a story with this headline: “Meet the point guard who just became Wichita State’s No. 1 recruiting target.”
