Portis Walking in Corliss' Shoes
« on: February 19, 2015, 09:03:34 pm »

Former Razorback All-American Corliss Williamson helped take Arkansas basketball to the top in 1994. Current Razorback Bobby Portis is leading a revival of the school's basketball program under Mike Anderson who was an assistant coach during Williamson's three seasons on the Hill. Wednesday night Williamson's 34 number was unfurled from the rafters at Bud Walton Arena. There seems to be little doubt Portis' 10 number will someday hang over the home of Hog basketball as well which would be even more fitting considering the connection between the two.

"I've known him since he was in the second grade," Williamson said of Portis. "I was coaching AAU basketball. My brother was going to barber college and his mom was going to barber college at the same time. I had a chance to meet his mom and found out that I had played basketball against his uncle. So we developed a relationship from that. I coached him for some years and it was fun to watch him develop and grow as a young man."

If he decides to come back we are an instant contender nationally.  I don't think it's completely out of the question.
