Report: Former Iowa guard commits to SEC hoops power
Former Iowa guard C.J. Fredrick made a surprising announcement after the 2020-21 season, entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Now, he’s found a home.
According to 247Sports, Fredrick will be committing to play at Kentucky in the SEC. Fredrick spent two seasons with the Hawkeyes, starting in over 50 games while with the team.
Because of the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all winter student-athletes, Fredrick will still have three years of eligibility to use in Lexington. He takes 52 games of playing experience with him to Kentucky.
Last season, Fredrick averaged 7.5 points, 1.9 assists and 1.1 rebounds per game for the Hawkeyes while shooting over 47% from both the floor and behind the 3-point line. The guard did miss a handful of games in the season because of injury.
As a freshman during the 2019-20 season, Fredrick averaged 10.5 points, 2.8 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game. He maintained over a 48% field goal success rate throughout the course of his first year on the floor with the program.
Iowa ended the season with a 22-9 record and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
