VCU PG Adrian “Ace” Baldwin Jr. Enters Transfer Portal

Penn State
Bryce Jordan Center

On Thursday, VCU point guard Adrian “Ace” Baldwin Jr. announced via Twitter that he entered the transfer portal.

This is particularly interesting to Penn State fans, because the team’s new head coach Mike Rhoades, came from VCU.

Baldwin (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) played three seasons for VCU. He’s a pure point guard and a playmaker who was a four-star recruit, according from the Class of 2020. He chose VCU over Georgetown, Kansas State, Maryland and Virginia.

The St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, Maryland) product averaged 12.7 points, 5.8 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game in his junior year for VCU as he helped lead the Rams to the Atlantic 10 regular-season and tournament championship and an NCAA tournament bid.

In his sophomore year, Baldwin scored 11.4 points per game, 5.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds for VCU.

In his freshman year, Baldwin averaged 6.7 points, 4.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game as the Rams advanced to the NCAA tournament.

Baldwin is a high-producing point guard who comes from a smaller school i.e. Jalen Pickett, that is looking for an opportunity to shine and if he follows new Penn State head coach Mike Rhoades, he has the potential to do just that if he chooses to come to Penn State.

Baldwin will have two years of eligibility remaining in his collegiate career.
