Kermit Davis’ program just landed a big boost as one of Cal State Bakersfield’s best players has announced he plans to transfer back home to Oxford.
Sophomore guard Jarkel Joiner plans on leaving Cal State Bakersfield after scoring an average of 15.6 points per game last season for the Roadrunners. Joiner averaged a little over 10 points per game his freshman season for CSUB. During his playing career at Oxford High School, Joiner ranked fourth in the nation in scoring after averaging an incredible 36.5 points per game as a senior.
Joiner announced his plans to return to Mississippi by posting the following message on Twitter:
“First and foremost, I would like to thank the Lord for blessing me with the opportunity to play basketball at CSUB. I have grown as a man on and off the court. I appreciate the coaching staff for guiding me at this time in my life. I have formed an unforgettable bond and brotherhood with my teammates and have learned a lot from each of them. The relationships I have made at CSUB will never be taken for granted. It’s important to me that all of you know that you have played a vital role in my life and I am forever grateful. With that being said, I would like to say, Hotty Toddy! I will enter Ole Miss this June and further my education and basketball talents with Coach Kermit Davis/his staff and the Ole Miss basketball program. I am Mississippi MADE.”
