Akok Akok update
A few things to know about Akok Akok, the 6-foot-9 forward who has committed to UConn and plans to enroll for the fall semester: The results of his SATs are in and he remains on track, though there is a lot of paperwork remaining.
There will not be a scholarship for him in January, unless a player leaves voluntarily, which does not appear to be happening. Akok cannot play this season as a walk-on, because he has been recruited (official visits, etc.) and still remains eligible for the necessary financial aid.
So the plan is still for him to enroll for the spring semester, which begins Jan. 16, practice and work with the team, go on scholarship in June and play next season.
