Devonta Abron Commits to Arkansas

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
The Arkansas Razorbacks 2011 recruiting class is special. The Razorbacks embrace two of the best guards in the country, not to mention, a highly-touted forward in Aaron Ross, and post threat in Hunter Mickelson.

Four days after Rashad "Ky" Madden announced his intentions to join the Razorbacks 2011 recruiting class, Devonta Abron did the same.

Abron, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Dallas, Texas joins arguably one of the best recruiting classes this year.

Abron will benefit the Razorbacks in many ways. His frame is ideal, and he embraces overhauling strength that presents mix matches in the post. Not to mention, he has long arms that commend well on both ends of the floor.

He can block shots, rebound, intimidate, and jump up and catch the entry pass. His leaping ability presents problems for the defense as well.

Abron is still raising the recruiting boards, but the Razorbacks grasp a solid low post threat. Abron chose Arkansas over Alabama, Florida International, Houston, North Texas, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M.

He joins a loaded 2011 class that features B.J. Young, Madden, Ross, and Mickelson.
