Roster turnover is a reality in more than just football
Texas A&M basketball took a major step forward in 2022, narrowly missing the NCAA Tournament before going on to come within seconds of winning the NIT. But next year’s roster will look significantly different than the one we saw take the court back in March. In addition to graduate Quenton Jackson, the Aggies lost underclassmen Aaron Cash, Hassan Diarra and Marcus Williams to the transfer portal. The good news is that help to replace those players is on the way. It began last month with the transfer of Michigan State PF Julius Marble and Mississippi State SF Andersson Garcia. The roster additions continued today with the commitment of Arkansas PG KK Robinson.
Of A&M’s three transfer portal additions, Robinson is the highest-rated, ranked as the No. 63 high school prospect (and No. 10 PG) in the country when he committed to Arkansas two years ago. Most of his freshman season was lost to injury, and he logged just 91 minutes in 19 games in 2021-2022.
