No 2. Arkansas basketball signee Jordan Walsh

6’7″ | 195 lbs | Oak Cliff, Texas

Jordan Walsh is a 5-star recruit currently playing for Link Year Prep in Branson, Mo. He is the number one recruit in his native state of Texas, according to ESPN’s basketball recruiting. He’s the second-ranked small forward in the entire country and committed to play for the Razorbacks Oct. 14, 2021.

As a junior, the big man averaged 17 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists per game. He said one of the primary reasons for choosing Arkansas over schools like Texas and Kansas was because Musselman presented him with plans to get him to the NBA as soon as possible. He’s got the body and the skill and who better to learn about basketball at the next level than former NBA coach Musselman?

No 3. Arkansas basketball signee Barry Dunning

6’6″ | 185 lbs | Mobile, Ala.

The 4-star Hog signee averaged 21.5 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a junior for McGill-Toolen Catholic High School in Alabama.

Dunning is the no. 1 ranked player in the state of Alabama, according to ESPN. He’s going to be a nice addition to this squad. He can score straight-up versus defenders or with his back to the basket, according to Musselman. He has an incredibly high-basketball IQ and his passing is one of his greatest skills.
