The Razorbacks Take Chicago

Basketball in Arkansas has received an influx of national media attention dating back to the hiring of Eric Musselman in 2019, and it can reach a fever pitch.

The program broke the internet last fall with promises from Nick Smith Jr. and Jordan Walsh, leading to the country’s second-ranked 2022 class. Now that the two McDonald’s were named All-Americans, the Razorback faithful couldn’t help but see a different name on the West roster.

Anthony Black, Rivals’ highest-rated four-star prospect in the class, was the boiling point for Musselman, and his dedication to the Hogs on Monday night made basketball history in Arkansas.

For the first time, the country saw three future Razorbacks fit for the All-American game, much to the excitement of the “Muss Bus” himself.

The three dominated the broadcast, with near-constant praise for the work Musselman did in putting the class together. The players also put on a show, each of which brought on a number of highlights, possibly a taste of the Hogs ’22 season. Click here for a full rundown of what the future Razorbacks have been up to in-game.

mr. Basketball Honor adds another notch to Barry Dunning Jr.’s belt.

Recruiting basketball in Arkansas has become so popular of late that it can sometimes be easy to miss when one of the Rivals150 prospects adds another award to their resume. Barry Dunning was the last to do this.

Just weeks after Magnolia’s (Ark.) Derrian Ford took home his second Arkansas Gatorade Player of the Year, Dunning was named Mr. basketball.

Averaging 22.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, Dunning made the ASWA’s decision an easy one, and he will join a host of other top talents when he arrives in Arkansas this fall.

Muss shifts focus to 2023

After landing his third McDonald’s All-American and anything but a bow on a stacked 2022 class, Eric Musselman looks set to shift his focus to the ’23 cycle. A cog in that wheel is Del City (Okla.) Power forward Brandon Garrison.

Garrison, a four-star prospect, spoke to HawgBeat’s Jackson Collier about some of his top schools after his second trip to Fayetteville. For some thoughts on what the No. 73 player in the ’23 class can do on the field, as well as his comments on Arkansas, Gonzaga, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, check out the full story here.

It’s been a big week on the HawgBeat YouTube channel as we rounded out two 2023 pledges in our quest to review each of the Razorbacks’ 10 dedicated prospects.

In this week’s reruns, we took a look at a few four-stars from the old Southwest Conference area in Carson Dean (LB) and Shamar Easter (TE).

An Arkansas resident Easter starred for Ashdown in what was a dominating junior season. At 6-foot-5, 214-pounds, Easter creates a Calvin Johnson-esque mismatch on the outside. Matching hands and speed make Arkansas’s first class deployment a nightmare for defensive coordinators, and it’s no wonder Rivals rated him the class’s 114th overall prospect.

Dean, the Razorbacks’ most recent commitment, broke a nearly month-long drought for the Hogs. Rated a 5.8 four-star from Hebron High School in Carrolton, Texas, Dean is the second linebacker to join the ’23 class, and he spends most of his time rushing. The havoc he wreaks on opposing backfields is magnified by his 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame, allowing for pass deflections on the off chance that he can’t reach the quarterback.


Arkansas bolstered its second-ranked recruiting class for 2022 hoops Monday with the addition of Duncanville (Texas) superstar Anthony Black.

Black, the highest-rated Rivals four-star prospect in the class, chose Arkansas over a long battle with Gonzaga and Oklahoma State.

HawgBeat’s very own Jackson Collier took a look at what the McDonald’s All-American commitment means to Eric Musselman and co. as they hope to build on a second consecutive Elite-Eight run in the NCAA tournament.
