2018 Point Guard James Akinjo to Commit Monday

James Akinjo Decision

James Akinjo, the 6-foot point guard from Salesian (CA) High School, will make his college decision on Monday at 2pm Pacific Time at his high school, per Twitter. He currently has a top five of Virginia, California, Maryland, Iowa State, and UConn.

The Huskies seem to be the favorite as Akinjo is coming off his first and only official visit to UConn this weekend (Sept. 8). With three predictions on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball, 100% of experts expect Akinjo to choose the Huskies.

According to 247Sports, Akinjo is ranked as the No. 105 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 11 player from the state of California.

This summer, playing with the Oakland Soldiers on the Nike EYBL, Akinjo helped lead his team to a Peach Jam Title, adding 17 points and 5 assists in the title game.

Joining Akinjo on his official visit to UConn this past weekend was 2018 power forward Dimon Carrigan, who is also considering Clemson, Georgia Tech, Houston, Miami, Syracuse, Texas and Wichita State, and taking an official visit to Houston later this month (Sept. 23).

In addition to taking home a Peach Jam title, Akinjo had a tremendous summer, most recently taking home MVP honors at the NorCal Clash and scoring 43 points in the game.
