Could BYU's best and most experienced player be your next Kentucky Wildcats' star guard? Well, that's certainly a possibility.

Jaxson Robinson has his covid year to use and Kentucky is the likely destination if he chooses to do so.

According to KSR's Matt Jones, Robinson 'could be a quick addition' to Kentucky's roster for the 2024-25 season.

Robinson was BYU's leading scorer last season at 14.2 points per game off of the bench. The 6-foot-7 guard started just five games but averaged 26.4 minutes per game and was in double-figures scoring the ball in 25 of 33 games played.

The dynamic scoring guard had five games with at least 20 points and scored 25 points in BYU's Round of 64 loss in the NCAA Tournament to Duquesne.

Robinson shot 42.6 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three on 2.5 made 3s per game. He had 21 games with at least two made 3s.

“I mean, Coach Pope has been a great coach. He’s helped me so much and mentored me,” Robinson said earlier this year. “I couldn’t be here without him. He took a chance on me, and I’m forever in debt for that.”

Robinson spent two years at BYU, averaging 11.4 points per game across 66 games.

Prior to BYU, Robinson played one year at Arkansas in 2021-22, averaging 3.4 points. He began his career at Texas A&M, appearing in just 14 games.

Kentucky will have a vastly different roster next season -- there's no doubt about it. But, potentially having the most important piece to BYU's success this past season in the fold would be a critical first step.

Could he pair up with Reed Sheppard in the backcourt? That's about as good as a pair you could hope for at the current moment in Lexington. While conversations have already started between Sheppard and Mark Pope, there is still a lot to play out before a decision will be made.

It's likely a decision from the Big 12's Sixth Man of the Year will be before that of Sheppard. And, it's something Kentucky fans should be on the lookout for.
