2011 College Basketball Recruiting Report: Arkansas Razorbacks

The most memorable game the Razorbacks had last season happened against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Sophomore guard Courtney Fortson accumulated 35 points and the Razorbacks got passed the Bulldogs.

Nonetheless, winning a game over the Bulldogs was just about the only impressive outing they had this season.

The loss of Michael Washington still hurts the Razorbacks. However, I think they'll have fun with the recruits they nabbed in the 2011 class.

Verbal Commitments

F Hunter Mickelson 6'9''
Mickelson is a very agile forward. His long athletic 6-foot-9 frame will be an instant plus for the Razorbacks in the post. He will influence on offense as well as defense. His key trait is his ability to run in transition. Mickelson is very athletic so when running on the break you know he will be right there with you.

F Aaron Ross 6'8''
Ross will be a huge addition on the wing. He has the ability to make precise cuts as well as finish in the lane. He can also make mid-range jumpers and work in the post. He brings another dimension to the Razorbacks that they missed last season.

Considering Arkansas

*G Ky Madden
The Arkansas native could stay in his hometown to play basketball.

G Cedrick McAfee
McAfee seems like he is pushing towards the Volunteers. However, Arkansas is still in his recruiting.

F Keaton Miles
Georgia Tech seems like his leader. Kentucky is in the mix as well. However, the Razorbacks are not huge players.

F Wayne Martin
Martin is piling up offers. His recruitment is wide open but Arkansas is showing little interest.

*F Braeden Anderson
Anderson is in reach of the Razorbacks. They are showing a lot of interest in the 6-foot-8 forward.

F Adonis Thomas
Memphis or Tennessee? But don't count the Razorbacks out.

C Johnny O'Bryant
O'Bryant seems like a long shot for the Razorbacks

C Trey McDonald
McDonald's recruitment is wide open. He is still requiring offers and it's hard to tell where he could actually land.
