Jayden Epps was part of an impressive recruiting class for Illinois. Unfortunately, he hit the transfer portal after a strong season as a true freshman.

Late Easter Sunday, Epps announced his next destination via the transfer portal. He revealed a commitment to Georgetown and new head coach Ed Cooley, taking over the Hoyas after a productive run leading Providence.

As a true freshman, Epps appeared in 31 games with 11 starts for Brad Underwood’s program. He averaged 9.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists for the Illini but was unable to make much of an impact in the NCAA Tournament after a late-season concussion.

Epps’ departure still stings for Illinois, but early signs point to Ed Cooley building a strong transfer class for his first season at Georgetown. Ex-UNC forward and former 4-star prospect Dontrez Styles also committed to Cooley’s program over the weekend.
