Mizzou basketball transfer Xavier Pinson names 4 finalists, 3 from SEC
After entering the portal in late March, Mizzou transfer guard Xavier Pinson has narrowed his options down to four teams, including three from the SEC.
On Sunday, Pinson posted a graphic on his Instagram story naming Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia and Nebraska as his final four.
A starter in all 26 games of Mizzou’s 2020-21 campaign, Pinson averaged 13.6 points, 2.9 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game this season.
From Chicago, Pinson was a former 3-star recruit on the 247Sports Composite in the class of 2018. Mizzou beat reporter Dave Matter points out that there’s a decent chance Pinson will return to Columbia as a visitor in 2022.
Mizzou plays Arkansas home & away every year and is due to host Auburn & Georgia in 2022, so unless Pinson chooses Nebraska he’ll play a game in Columbia next season.
