FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas coach Eric Musselman has lost another player to the transfer portal with Jaxson Robinson entering the transfer portal.
It probably shouldn’t be that surprising as many people had speculated it could happen.

The sophomore from Ada (Okla.) appeared in 16 games (4 starts) for the Razorbacks this season and averaged 3.4 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.
He joins Chance Moore, KK Robinson and Connor Vanover as Razorbacks who have elected to transfer this offseason. He announced his intentions via his personal Twitter.
“First, I would like to thank God for blessing me with the ability to play the sport that I love. To the University of Arkansas, I want to say thank you. Thank you for embracing me and making me feel like one of your own. My experience here is something I will cherish forever. After taking some time to speak with my family and consider what is best for my future, I have decided to enter the transfer portal.”
He scored a career-high 14 points on 3-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc in Arkansas’ win over Elon on December 21.
Robinson also connected on multiple three-pointers against Gardner-Webb, Hofstra and at Mississippi State. In that contest in Starkville (Miss.), he finished with six points and a season-high seven rebounds in 32 minutes of action.
Robinson came to Arkansas after one season at Texas A&M.
