The Latest on UConn Transfer Forward Akok Akok



Here’s the latest on former UConn 4-star transfer forward Akok Akok.

Pittsburgh Sports Now spoke this afternoon with Akok’s former AAU coach Vin Pastore and he gave us an update on Akok’s recruitment.

*A new team has entered the mix, which is Ohio State. Their coaches have traveled to UConn today to meet with Akok. At this point, no official visit has been scheduled.

*As of today, the four teams in the running for Akok are Pitt, Georgetown, West Virginia and Ohio State.

*Akok’s official visit to Pitt is still happening. Pastore says that Akok will arrive in Pittsburgh tomorrow and will depart Saturday evening.

*Timeline for Akok to make a decision and could it happen shortly after his visit to Pitt? Pastore says, “Hoping sooner than later.”

After having to cancel his official visit to Pitt because of a stomach flu and meeting with West Virgina and now Ohio State, it has to be considered a positive that Akok is still coming to Pittsburgh and Jeff Capel and his program will possibly have the last visit with him.

Capel wants very much to add this talented forward to his program and to interest him into the Panthers starting lineup to pair with John Hugley on his front court.

Capel and his staff will have the opportunity to convey this to Akok starting tomorrow.
