* Mason Jones, who is currently on his official vist to Arkansas that began on Friday, can sign his national letter of intent as early as this coming Wednesday (April 11) when the NCAA spring signing period begins ... I'm told he committed to UA coaches tonight ...

* When I watch @masonjones2 on film, I see an alpha shooter-scorer who knows how to subtly & effectively set up his 3-pt game ... no wasted dribbling or movement, very proactive, crafty, & confident ... strong rebounder from the wing, too ... looks like a nice fit for #Fastest40 !!

Actually his sister was a guard at Texas A&M and his brother played at Duke. Both were McDonald All-American selections. And I also believe as you suggested Mason is a late bloomer. Glad he is a Hog!

I agree highlight tapes can be deceiving. But I look for certain things. Iím pretty good at predicting success or lack of when it comes to basketball players. Not tooting my horn but itís true, Iíve just always had a good eye for good basketball players.

What I see when I watch Mason Jones is couple things. The way he sets his threes up in the highlight reel. Theyíre not wide open looks. He uses little baby like crossovers, and a nice jab step to create space and then has a quick release. Many of the shots in his clip are long range, like NBA range threes, but more important than that to me is a lot of the shots he made on his video were highly contested shots. The %ís donít lie. And his 3 pt % is very good. And he at least appears to be able to shoot with a hand in his face.

Another thing Iíve always noticed in all my years following basketball and recruiting, and even the NBA draft and NBA season are rebounding is a stat that more than any other almost always transfers from one level to the next with prospects. He averaged almost 7 boards a game as a guard, either you want the ball or you donít, this kid appears to want it.

I say we at least give him a chance. Be mad at Mike Anderson if youíre not impressed with this kid, but no need in talking him down until youíve at least seen whether or not he can get it done when he gets here.

Thatís just my G.E.D opinion

I'm going to continue to make smart a$$ comments implying this kid is no good so it fits my negative narrative that the sky is falling and the program is in disarray.

Seriously it borders on player bashing. The kid is now a Razorback. If you can't be positive about it should just zip it because running him down or pissing and moaning is bashing

It didn't take long for the staff to land this kid,  I like the fact that the kid  seems to be a basketball player an not just a athlete, has his head on right an may be a big part of the leadership for the young team. I think getting this kid quickly shows how much the program has grown over past years.I

Attrition at the guard & forward position will open up spots in 2019.  It's easy to predict these now because of the amount of depth vs playing time.

Not every kid has the patience so as NL stated the numbers will always work itself out.

I would think that if we bring in a juco or transfer, they should be good enough to start over the freshman that's coming in next year. That is the only way to make the team better. We should wait until the end of next year to pass judgement on this recruit. Next year needs to be the best coaching job in CMA career.

The one year of eligibility is a serious problem. It would leave the Hogs without an experienced true big man for the 2019-2020 season and that isn't good. Courtese Cooper is the better option.

Good observations. Only thing I caution about than the things you listed and it is hard to know just watching tape, and that is level of competition. Playing at a juco level and you see him shooting "contested" shots, you have to remember if he is 6'5" he is as tall as a lot of guys playing center at that level, so he has a size advantage on most guards he is going to see night in and night out. Can he make that shot when he is going to be defended by guys his size and have wing spans long enough to really bother or block his shot, so he has to get it off quicker than he is comfortable doing?

If he was as athletic as Hall or CJ with that skill set and shot then he wouldnít have been in JUCO.

The most atheletic an talented kids are not always the best basketball players, how many major offers did the Loyola of Chicago kids have, they turned out to be great players. The kid had a plan to get a major offer an it certainly worked out for him, the kid is a winner, I bet he makes the team better.

If going the Loyola route, surely you realize those kids were taught fundamental team basketball. Fundamental team ball isnít taught here.

Put those Loyola kids under Mike Anderson and they arenít even in the tournament.

The fundamentals of basketball is to score more points than your opponent, Arkansas wins more often than not. Watkins was a head coach long before joining Anderson an he knows fundamentals not that Mike don't.
