By ADAM ZAGORIA Georgetown transfer James Akinjo has committed to Arizona after visiting the school in mid-December. “Happy New Year. I’m 1000 percent committed,” he wrote on Instagram. Akinjo would be eligible in the second semester of the 2020-21 season unless he obtains a waiver that allows him to start next season. Arizona is expected to lose freshman point guard Nico Mannion to the NBA Draft. Mannion is the projected No. 7 pick, per ESPN.com. The Big East Freshman of the Year a year ago, Akinjo averaged 13.4 points, 5.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game in 40 career games at Georgetown. Akinjo was one of four Georgetown players now transferring from Patrick Ewing’s program after Galen Alexander and Myron Gardner announced their transfer. A three-star guard coming out of high school, Akinjo was named the MVP of the Peach Jam in 2017 after averaging 18.7 points and 6.7 assists over the course of four days.
