Report: Former Ole Miss G Blake Hinson chooses Big 12 transfer destination
Recently, the Ole Miss Rebels have had a couple of players enter the NCAA transfer portal, including 2-year starter Blake Hinson.
Hinson was potentially expected to be a big contributor this coming season, but instead, on Wednesday, it was reported that he was heading to the Big 12.
Per college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Hinson has chosen to transfer to Iowa State for his last 2 years of eligibility:

The past 2 seasons, Hinson has started 58 of the 60 games he’s appeared in. He has averaged 9.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists per contest.
It is unclear if Iowa State will apply for a waiver to try to get Hinson eligible immediately or if he’ll have to sit out the 2020-21 season.
