The former top recruit has made his transfer decision.
Mario Kegler has announced his transfer decision.
The former Mississippi State forward is transferring to Baylor.
Kegler, a 6-foot-7, 225-pound forward, averaged 9.4 points and 5.5 rebounds a game for the Bulldogs during the 2016-17 season.
He reportedly wasn’t happy with his role on the team, though, and played the 4 a lot after being told he could play the 3 in college.
So he’s going to Baylor.
Mississippi State transfer Mario Kegler will transfer to Baylor, he says. Top 50 recruit coming out of high school.
