Barking Abbey alumnus Radwan Bakkali has signed to NCAA Division 1 school Jacksonville University on a full athletic scholarship for the 2017-18 season.

The 6’10” big man graduated from BA in 2015, where he went on to do two years at Kilgore College. He registered a season-high 13 points on 5/10 shooting in their final game of the year, as Kilgore finished with a 13-16 record in Bakkali’s Sophomore season.

“This is a fantastic achievement for Radwan,” said BA Director of Operations Lloyd Gardner.

“He was a young man that joined us with very limited basketball experience but a work ethic that saw him improve a huge amount in a very short period of time. I am proud that he has continued with this through his time at Kilgore College and look forward to seeing him continue to grow and improve as a basketball player at Jacksonville.”

Jacksonville compete in the Atlantic Sun Conference, where they went 5-9 last season, 17-16 overall for a sixth placed finish.
