Rio Haskett is transferring from the Ivy League’s HU to the Big South’s HU.
The former Harvard University guard has decided to transfer to Hampton after three seasons. Haskett is a 6’3 guard from Richmond, VA.
“Ain’t nothing changed, still a H in front of the U,” Haskett wrote when announcing his commitment on Saturday.
Haskett is coming off a career year for Harvard. He averaged a career-high 6.2 points and 17.5 minutes while playing in 29 games, including six starts. He scored a career-best 19 points against Columbia on Feb. 28.
The Ivy League announced earlier this month that the conference will opt out of basketball as a whole. Hampton has a condensed non-conference schedule but plans to play college hoops. He will be eligible to play immediately as a graduate transfer.
