Arkansas F Abayomi Iyiola enters transfer portal

Arkansas forward Abayomi Iyiola announced he has entered the transfer portal after one season with the Razorbacks.

Iyiola announced his decision on Twitter.

“This was definitely an experience I would never forget,” he wrote in part. “After much prayers and consideration with my family, I will be entering my name into the transfer portal. I look forward to competing academically and athletically elsewhere.”

Iyiola played in just one game for Arkansas last season as a junior after playing his first two seasons with Stetson. He sat out the 2019-20 season after he transferred.

In 63 games over two seasons at Stetson, the 6-foot-9 Iyiola averaged 10.3 points with 6.8 rebounds but was not able to establish any playing time once he joined the Razorbacks.

Arkansas was ranked as high as No. 8 in the nation last season and advanced to the South Regional final where it was defeated by eventual national champion Baylor.
