LITTLE ROCK -- On Wednesday (Sept. 11), Arkansas coaches will criss-cross the country to make prospect visits, including stops in Virginia, North Carolina, and Minnesota.

Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams will travel to Oak Hill (Va.) Academy to see in-state Hog offers in 2020 Khalen "KK" Robinson (6-1 point guard, Bryant, Ark., composite national No. 70 / 4-star prospect) and 2021 Jalen Ricks (6-6 wing, Sherwood, Ark., national No. 106 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com).

Robinson took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late August, and Ricks took an unofficial visit there in late June. Hogs special assistant coach Hays Myers was in Bryant last spring for an on-campus visit with Robinson. Both players are in their first season at Oak Hill.

According to a source, Williams is planning to be in Greensboro, N.C., on Wednesday to see Arkansas offer Cam Hayes (6-1 point guard, Greensboro Day School, composite national No. 28 / 4-star prospect). Hayes is currently listed as part of the class of 2021, but recent reports indicate he is strongly considering if not already decided on a re-classification to 2020. He reported his Hog offer via Twitter in early August. hayes took an official visit to North Carolina State over the weekend and has visits set up to Maryland and Louisville later in September.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser will be in his homestate of Minnesota on Wednesday, presumably to see one or all of a trio of Arkansas offers in 2020 Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, Hopkins, MN, composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect); 2021 Chet Holmgren (7-0 forward / center, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, composite national No. 5 / 5-star prospect); and 2022 Prince Aligbe (6-6 wing / small forward, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis).

LITTLE ROCK -- It's Super Tuesday -- a.k.a. the second day of the nearly six-month-long "recruting period" -- for the Arkansas Razorbacks' men's basketball coaches who are back on the road to make on-campus and in-home visits with 2020, 2021, and 2022 high school prospects.

The headliner today is Head Hog Eric Musselman stopping in at Fort Smith Northside to see 2020 Arkansas offer Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, composite national No. 66 / 4-star prospect). Williams took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late June, then on Sunday he stopped by for a photo shoot with Musselman. He recently said he will also take one of his four remaining official visits to Arkansas "soon."

"He's (Musselman) coming to watch me practice on Tuesday, along with Coach (Clay) Moser," Williams said Sunday following his brief visit for a photo op at Arkansas. "They're talking to me almost every day, and they call me every other day. Just knowing that they have experience with the NBA, and what it takes to get there.

"They play positionless basketball, and knowing how I like to play I can get outside and if I need to play down low, I can do that, too."

A skilled big man, Williams is down to the Hogs, Oklahoma State, Auburn, Texas A&M, UConn, Iowa State, and Illinois. He has already taken one of his official visits -- to Oklahoma State in June.

Razorbacks assistant coach Corey Williams is expected to see two in-state 2022 Arkansas offers and national Top 35 prospects on Tuesday.

"Corey Williams is coming on the 10th (of September, which is Tuesday) to see me practice," said 2022 Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills, national No. 35 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

"He (Corey Williams) said it will be Tuesday!!!" said Darnell Ford, father of 2022 Derrian Ford (6-3 combo guard, Magnolia, national No. 32 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

Arkansas associate head coach Chris Cruthfield is on the road Tuesday as well.

Monday, Sept. 9 ...

EDIT / UPDATE (10:36 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and associate head coach Chris Crutchfield visited 2020 Hog offer and ESPN national No. 24 / 5-star prospect Bryce Thompson (6-4 shooting guard) at Tulsa Booker T. Washington High School on Monday. Thompson -- who took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late June -- recently released his Top 7 schools, a list that includes Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, North Carolina, Michigan State, and Texas. Thompson took an official visit to North Carolina over the weekend, then at midnight on Monday it was Oklahoma State's Mike Boynton who was the first coach to do an in-home visit with Thompson. Later Monday, in addition to Musselman, Thompson had Bill Self of Kansas, Shaka Smart of Texas, and Lon Kruger of Oklahoma in to see him at school. It remains to be seen if Thompson returns to Arkansas for another visit, but his father Rod Thompson said back in June that Thompson would likely return to Fayetteville "in the fall."

EDIT / UPDATE (9:45 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser visited 2020 Hog offer Moses Moody (6-6 shooting guard, Little Rock native, ESPN national No. 28 prospect) on Monday at Montverde Academy in Florida (see photo linked at bottom of story). Coaches from Florida were also on hand Monday to see Moody, and coaches from Ohio State, Michigan, and Oregon are expected to be out Tuesday to see him. Moody confirmed on Friday that he'll take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of Oct. 18-20, marking his second OV to Arkansas in the past year. He took an OV to Ohio State on Labor Day weekend, and he's considering Michigan (possibly the last weekend in September), Florida, Kansas, Oregon, and Southern Cal for his final 3 OVs.

EDIT / UPDATE (9:02 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams were in West Memphis on Monday night for an in-home visit with 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports). Earlier on Monday afternoon, Williams dropped by West Memphis basketball practice to see Moore (photos of Arkansas's on-campus and in-home visit are linked at the bottom of the page). The in-home visit Monday night improved Arkansas's standing with Moore.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list.

EDIT / UPDATE (4:27 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas asst coach Corey Williams will be on the road Wednesday and plans to see Hog offers & in-state hoopers 2020 Khalen "KK" Robinson (6-1 point guard, composite national No. 70 / 4-star prospect) & 2021 Jalen Ricks (6-6 wing, national No. 106 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com) at Oak Hill (VA) Academy, according to Ricks.

EDIT / UPDATE (3:16 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Prior to tonight's in-home visit, Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams stopped by West Memphis practice on Monday afternoon to see 2020 Hog offer & national Top 100 Chris Moore. See photo at bottom of page.

Terran took unofficial visit to Arkansas in August.

EDIT / UPDATE (12:17 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Per source, Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams is in Memphis on Monday to see 2021 Hog offer & composite national No. 20 / 5-star Kennedy Chandler (6-0 PG, Briarcrest Christian) ... Chandler took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in August.

LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas hosted multiple prospects from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 classes on unofficial visits in June and August, and with today (Monday, Sept. 9) marking the first day of the nearly six-month-long NCAA "recruiting period" the Razorbacks coaches will hit the road and canvas the country with a lazer-focus on visiting priority in-state and footprint-state targets who hold Arkansas offers.

Head Hog Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams will be in West Memphis for an in-home visit Monday night with 2020 Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com). Moore will also be visited at home Monday by coaches from Memphis.

The chiseled and powerfully explosive forward with an elite motor announced last week that he'll take an official visit to Arkansas -- his second OV to Fayetteville in just over a year -- the weekend of Sept. 20-22. In addition to the Hogs and Tigers, Moore is considering Iowa State, Auburn, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and a host of other high-major programs.

Also on Monday, Arkansas coaches will travel to Montverde Academy in Florida to see 2020 Moses Moody (6-6 shooting guard, ESPN national No. 28 prospect). Moody has the Hogs in his Top 7 schools, and he announced last week that he'll take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of Oct. 18-20, which will mark his second OV to Fayetteville in a year. He just took an official visit to Ohio State over Labor Day weekend, and Buckeyes coaches will be at Montverde on Tuesday to see him.

Moody's also considering visits to Michigan (possibly at the end of September), Kansas, Florida, Oregon, and Southern Cal. The smooth and efficient shooter-scorer took an unofficial visit to Arkansas on June 30.

Razorbacks coaches will be in Fort Smith on Tuesday to see 2020 Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, Fort Smith Northside, composite national No. 66 / 4-star prospect) at basketball practice.

"He's (Musselman) coming to watch me practice on Tuesday, along with Coach (Clay) Moser," Williams said Sunday following a brief visit for a photo op at Arkansas. "They're talking to me almost every day, and they call me every other day. Just knowing that they have experience with the NBA, and what it takes to get there.

"They play positionless basketball, and knowing how I like to play I can get outside and if I need to play down low, I can do that, too."

Williams, a skilled big man who took an unofficial visit to Arkansas on June 26 and plans to take an official visit to Fayetteville "soon", is down to the Hogs, Oklahoma State, Auburn, Texas A&M, UConn, Iowa State, and Illinois. He has already taken one of his official visits -- to Oklahoma State in June.

Arkansas coaches are also expected to travel to prestigious Oak Hill (VA) Academy this week to see 2020 Khalen "KK" Robinson (6-1 point guard, composite national No. 70 / 4-star prospect) and 2021 Jalen Ricks (6-6 wing, national No. 106 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com). Robinson has the Hogs in his Final 7 along with Kansas, Texas A&M, TCU, Illinois, Iowa State, and Vanderbilt, while in addition to his Arkansas offer Ricks holds offers from Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and TCU with Texas and Tulsa both showing strong interest.

"Yeah," Ricks confirmed when asked if Hog coaches were coming out to see him and KK Robinson. "They have asked about our practice schedule."

2020 Rondel Walker (6-3 combo guard, Putnam City West in Oklahoma, ESPN national No. 45 / 4-star prospect) confirmed last week that Arkansas would be in today to see him.

"They will be here Monday," said Walker, who took an unofficial visit to Arkansas on Aug. 1 and is planning for a second unofficial visit on Sept. 21 after naming the Hogs in his Top 5 schools that also includes, Oklahoma State, Texas, Kansas State, and Virginia Tech.

2021 Harrison Ingram (6-7 combo forward, Dallas St. Marks, composite national No. 17 / 5-star prospect) said he felt like he was "at home" during his August unofficial visit to Arkansas, and now he's expecting Razorbacks coaches to come in at the end of the week.

"My school only does one open gym a week, but Coach Corey Williams said he'll be here Friday," Ingram said.

2021 Manny Obaseki (6-2 combo guard, Allen, TX, composite national No. 42 / 4-star prospect) has confirmed that Arkansas coaches are planning to visit him this week as well.

"They're planning to come the 11th (Wednesday) or 12th (Thursday)," said Obaseki, who is planning to visit Arkansas later in the fall.

Regarding more footprint-state priority targets, sources confirmed Arkansas coaches plan to see 2020 Bryce Thompson (6-4 shooting guard, Tulsa Booker T. Washington, ESPN national No. 24 / 5-star prospect, named Arkansas in his Top 7 schools, took unofficial visit to Fayetteville in late June); 2021 Kennedy Chandler (6-0 point guard, Briarcrest Christian in Memphis, composite national No. 20 / 5-star prospect, took unofficial visit to Fayetteville in August); 2020 Eddie Lampkin (6-10 forward / center, Katy, TX, ESPN 4-star prospect, has OV to Arkansas set for Oct. 18-20 but is looking to bump that up to September); 2021 Trey Alexander (6-5 combo guard, Heritage Hall in Oklahoma, composite national No. 34 / 4-star prospect, took unofficial visit to Arkansas in August); 2021 Jaxson Robinson (6-5 wing, Ada, Okla., composite national No. 36 / 4-star prospect); and 2021 Daimion Collins (6-9 forward / center, Atlanta, TX, national No. 20 / 4-star prosspect according to Rivals.com).

While the 2022 class may seem far away, a couple of in-state sophomore guards with Arkansas offers are expecting visits from Razorbacks assistant coach Corey Williams on Tuesday.

"Corey Williams is coming on the 10th (of September, which is Tuesday) to see me practice," said 2022 Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills, national No. 35 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

"He (Corey Williams) said it will be Tuesday!!!" said Darnell Ford, father of 2022 Derrian Ford (6-3 combo guard, Magnolia, national No. 32 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

Outside of the footprint-state recruiting region, Arkansas has shown a recent interest in players in both Georgia and Minnesota so it is likely that some if not all of the following 2020, 2021, and 2022 Hog offers will be visited in the near future by Arkansas's coaching staff: 2021 Matthew Cleveland (6-6 combo guard, Pace Academy in Georgia, composite national No. 37 / 4-star prospect); 2021 Kowacie Reeves (6-5 combo guard, Macon, GA, composite national No. 109 / 4-star prospect); 2021 Kaleb Washington (6-7 wing / small forward, Mableton, GA, conposite national No. 93 / 4-star prospect); 2020 Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, Hopkins, MN, composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect); 2021 Chet Holmgren (7-0 forward / center, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, compsite national No. 5 / 5-star prospect); and 2022 Prince Aligbe (6-6 wing / small forward, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis).

It is nice to hear the recruiting updates and see the pictures of the coaches out and about.  I am glad the coaches are doing something similar to the football coaches and tweeting pictures of being out on the recruiting trail.  I liked how Clay Moser set his up like a concert tour of where he was going to be each day.

EDIT / UPDATE (10:36 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and associate head coach Chris Crutchfield visited 2020 Hog offer and ESPN national No. 24 / 5-star prospect Bryce Thompson (6-4 shooting guard) at Tulsa Booker T. Washington High School on Monday. Thompson -- who took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late June -- recently released his Top 7 schools, a list that includes Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, North Carolina, Michigan State, and Texas. Thompson took an official visit to North Carolina over the weekend, then at midnight on Monday it was Oklahoma State's Mike Boynton who was the first coach to do an in-home visit with Thompson. Later Monday, in addition to Musselman, Thompson had Bill Self of Kansas, Shaka Smart of Texas, and Lon Kruger of Oklahoma in to see him at school. It remains to be seen if Thompson returns to Arkansas for another visit, but his father Rod Thompson said back in June that Thompson would likely return to Fayetteville "in the fall."

EDIT / UPDATE (9:45 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser visited 2020 Hog offer Moses Moody (6-6 shooting guard, Little Rock native, ESPN national No. 28 prospect) on Monday at Montverde Academy in Florida (see photo linked at bottom of story). Coaches from Florida were also on hand Monday to see Moody, and coaches from Ohio State, Michigan, and Oregon are expected to be out Tuesday to see him. Moody confirmed on Friday that he'll take an official visit to Arkansas the weekend of Oct. 18-20, marking his second OV to Arkansas in the past year. He took an OV to Ohio State on Labor Day weekend, and he's considering Michigan (possibly the last weekend in September), Florida, Kansas, Oregon, and Southern Cal for his final 3 OVs.

EDIT / UPDATE (9:02 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 9, 2019): Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman and assistant coach Corey Williams were in West Memphis on Monday night for an in-home visit with 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports). Earlier on Monday afternoon, Williams dropped by West Memphis basketball practice to see Moore (photos of Arkansas's on-campus and in-home visit are linked at the bottom of the page). The in-home visit Monday night improved Arkansas's standing with Moore.

"It went great," Moore said. "I heard some really good things. He (Musselman) was giving me a perspective that a lot of college coaches haven't given me. It kind of gave me a new thing to think about when it comes time to narrow my list.

Read more about Moore and his in-home visit with Arkansas coaches Monday -- including his thoughts on Musselman's presentation, where he'll take his 5 official visits, and the possbility of bumping his OV to Arkansas up a week -- by clicking the link ... https://forums.hogville.net/index.php?topic=690513.0

LITTLE ROCK -- It's Super Tuesday -- a.k.a. the second day of the nearly six-month-long "recruting period" -- for the Arkansas Razorbacks' men's basketball coaches who are back on the road to make on-campus and in-home visits with 2020, 2021, and 2022 high school prospects.

The headliner today is Head Hog Eric Musselman stopping in at Fort Smith Northside to see 2020 Arkansas offer Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, composite national No. 66 / 4-star prospect). Williams took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late June, then on Sunday he stopped by for a photo shoot with Musselman. He recently said he will also take one of his four remaining official visits to Arkansas "soon."

"He's (Musselman) coming to watch me practice on Tuesday, along with Coach (Clay) Moser," Williams said Sunday following his brief visit for a photo op at Arkansas. "They're talking to me almost every day, and they call me every other day. Just knowing that they have experience with the NBA, and what it takes to get there.

"They play positionless basketball, and knowing how I like to play I can get outside and if I need to play down low, I can do that, too."

A skilled big man, Williams is down to the Hogs, Oklahoma State, Auburn, Texas A&M, UConn, Iowa State, and Illinois. He has already taken one of his official visits -- to Oklahoma State in June.

Razorbacks assistant coach Corey Williams is expected to see two in-state 2022 Arkansas offers and national Top 35 prospects on Tuesday.

"Corey Williams is coming on the 10th (of September, which is Tuesday) to see me practice," said 2022 Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills, national No. 35 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

"He (Corey Williams) said it will be Tuesday!!!" said Darnell Ford, father of 2022 Derrian Ford (6-3 combo guard, Magnolia, national No. 32 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com, took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in early August).

Arkansas associate head coach Chris Cruthfield is on the road Tuesday as well.

Kevin, I notice Kyree Walker is not being mentioned anymore. Is he off the board?

Also wondering why Cameron Matthews isnt getting a visit or setting up an OV. He seems really talented and we made his top 5. He's just outside of Memphis, where coaches recently were.

LITTLE ROCK -- On Wednesday, Arkansas coaches will criss-cross the country to make prospect visits, including stops in Virginia, North Carolina, and Minnesota.

Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams will travel to Oak Hill (Va.) Academy to see in-state Hog offers in 2020 Khalen "KK" Robinson (6-1 point guard, Bryant, Ark., composite national No. 70 / 4-star prospect) and 2021 Jalen Ricks (6-6 wing, Sherwood, Ark., national No. 106 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com).

Robinson took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late August, and Ricks took an unofficial visit there in late June. Hogs special assistant coach Hays Myers was in Bryant last spring for an on-campus visit with Robinson. Both players are in their first season at Oak Hill.

According to a source, Williams is planning to be in Greensboro, N.C., on Wednesday to see Arkansas offer Cam Hayes (6-1 point guard, Greensboro Day School, composite national No. 28 / 4-star prospect). Hayes is currently listed as part of the class of 2021, but recent reports indicate he is strongly considering if not already decided on a re-classification to 2020. He reported his Hog offer via Twitter in early August. hayes took an official visit to North Carolina State over the weekend and has visits set up to Maryland and Louisville later in September.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser will be in his homestate of Minnesota on Wednesday, presumably to see one or all of a trio of Arkansas offers in 2020 Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, Hopkins, MN, composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect); 2021 Chet Holmgren (7-0 forward / center, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, composite national No. 5 / 5-star prospect); and 2022 Prince Aligbe (6-6 wing / small forward, Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis).

I wonder if Dawson Garcia is one of the ones getting a visit in Minnesota.  He is cutting his list down soon, but would be considered a longshot.  It is nice to hear that Walton in on the presumed list to visit.  It sounds like Minnehaha Academy is loaded.

I am curious if any of the coaches will be visiting Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas since there are a couple of recruits there in Kendall Brown and Zach Clemence.

Do we know if Moser also visited with Langston Love on Monday at Montverde as that was a name on the radar this summer out of Texas from the 2021 class?

I haven't figured out (in just a little time thinking) who we are recruiting in Iowa and Ohio as those are two stops listed.  I know we have Ambrose up in Canada, so will we cross the border at some point on the present tour.

Also wondering why Cameron Matthews isnt getting a visit or setting up an OV. He seems really talented and we made his top 5. He's just outside of Memphis, where coaches recently were.

It seems Walker would be a longshot attempt, with rumors about going to play in China and not seeming to be in any hurry to set up visits.

Visiting Matthews on the same trip as visiting Moore and/or Chandler would make sense, but they may just be more focused on the ones higher on the pecking order for now. 

HardingHog


Just getting in the door for Chet Holmgren is impressive! That kid is a stud and really entertaining to watch. Incredible shot blocker, can shoot, and even put the ball on the floor pretty well

Also, the idea of him being on the court with Vanover would be hilarious for the fact that it would look like something you'd do in a video game.

Kyree's in play until he's not, will be on him to pull the trigger on setting visits or going pro ... too late at most schools to reclass for fall semester, still an option for spring semester.

Arkansas still kicking the tires on Matthews, not a priority right now although that could change. Do not think Corey Williams worked in a stop at his school on Monday as Chris Moore and Kennedy Chandler were the priorities.

Sat/Fri/Thurs updates: Hoop Hog coaches make most of recruiting period
« Reply #20 on: September 12, 2019, 07:18:43 pm »

By Kevin McPherson

FAYETTEVILLE -- 2021 Arkansas offer Harrison Ingram (6-7 combo forward, Dallas St. Marks, composite national No. 18 / 5-star prospect) was paid a visit by Hogs assistant coach Corey Williams on Friday,  and Ingram came away with another positive impression of the Razorbacks coaching staff.

"Went really well," Ingram said. "Met before school and he met my head coach. Had a good visit with my Dad."

Ingram said he'll get a visit from Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman next week.

"(Williams) said next week he'll be back with Coach Musselman!!"

Ingram, a spring and summer star on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit while playing up with 17U YGC36, has been busy of late with his Arkansas recruitment.

He said he felt like he was "at home" during his unofficial visit to Arkansas in August. He has also indicated that he will take an official visit to Fayetteville during his current junior year of high school.

One of the top prospects in the country, Ingram's size and skill are an effective combination that translates to him being a capable playmaker for himself and others as a primary handler (or "point-forward") out on the floor.

In early June, he took part in the prestigious Pangos All American Camp in California.

2020 Hog offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, Hopkins, Minn., composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect) -- he was visited by Musselmen on Wednesday -- is another Arkansas target who could see the Head Hog next week.

"It was on campus," Walton said of Musselman's mid-week visit. "It went well. The dialogue was good and informative. I believe coach and staff will be returning next week or soon."

One of the top shooters in the country, Walton talked of a possible visit to Arkansas.

"We're working on that," Walton said. "We plan on scheduling visits after this week once we get a feel from the coaches that come up here."

"My school only does one open gym a week, but Coach Corey Williams said he'll be here ..." Ingram said early in the week.

On Thursday, Ingram said Williams would arrive either in the morning or around 3 p.m.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser is expected to be in Ohio on Friday to see 2020 Hog offer Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8 small forward / wing, Toronto native, composite national No. 77 / 4-star) at Andrews Osborne Academy.

Ambrose-Hylton picked up his Arkansas offer in August.

Thursday, Sept. 12 ...

By Kevin McPherson

LITTLE ROCK -- Thursday was the fourth day of the current 6-month-long recruiting period, and Arkansas Razorbacks coaches continued to criss-cross the country to watch practices and visit recruits from the 2020, 2021, and 2022 classes.

With the mid-November early signing period for 2020 closing in, Arkansas associate head coach Chris Crutchfield traveled to Katy, TX, on Thursday to see priority 2020 big man Eddie Lampkin (6-10, 285, Morton Ranch High School, ESPN 4-star prospect).

Lampkin recently included Arkansas in his Final 5 schools along with TCU, Texas A&M, Seton Hall, and Western Kentucky. He has an official visit to Arkansas set for the weekend of Oct. 18-20, but he has expressed interest in moving that visit up to as early as mid-to-late September.

Lampkin has taken official visits to TCU and Western Kentucky, he's working on setting up an OV to Seton Hall, and he's set for an OV to Texas A&M the weekend of Oct. 10-12.

Crutchfield also sent to see 2021 5-star big man Jerell Colbert (6-9 center, Texas Christian School, Houston, composite national No. 21 prospect) at practice on Friday. Colbert reported his Hog offer back in June.

Arkansas assistant coach logged significant travel miles on Thursday, starting in Greensboro, N.C, to see 2020 Hog offer Cam Hayes before moving on to Allen, TX, to see 2021 Hog offer Manny Obaseki.

It was originally planned for Wednesday to visit Hayes  (6-1 point guard, Greensboro Day School, composite national No. 28 / 4-star prospect), but Williams made that visit early Thursday norning. Hayes was class of 2021, but recently re-classified to 2020. He reported his Hog offer via Twitter in early August. Hayes took an official visit to North Carolina State over the weekend and has visits set up to Maryland and Louisville later in September.

Obaseki (6-2 combo guard, Allen, TX, composite national No. 31 / 4-star prospect) confirmed Arkansas was in to see him Thursday afternoon.

"They came to my practice," Obaseki said. "Coach Williams."

Obseki reported his Hog offer in mid-June, and he said he is currently working on setting an visit date to Fayetteville in the near future.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser was in Minnesota on Thursday to see an early morning practice at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis.

"Arkansas was in for a morning workout today," said 2022 Hog offer Prince Aligbe (6-6 small forward / wing, national No. 49 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Moser was also at Minnehaha Academy to see 2021 Hog offer and 5-star big man Chet Holmgren (7-0, center, composite national No. 5 prospect).

Back-tracking a day to Wednesday, it was Arkansas head coach Eric Musselman who stopped in Hopkins, Minn., to see 2020 Hog offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect).

"It was on campus," Walton said of Musselman's visit. "It went well. The dialogue was good and informative. I believe coach and staff will be returning next week or soon."

I love these coaches energy to be offering 4/5 star studs all over the country but we must sign a few of these guys before I get too excited.  I am hoping we can sign 3 in November..

It sounds like the Muss and staff are making a strong push here.  Muss likes those shooters as we saw on the grad transfer and sit-out transfer recruiting trail targeting the likes of Moss, Mathis, Horton, and Vanover.  Muss making the personal visit here with Walton conveying that he believes coach and staff would be returning next week or soon, sounds like he is a strong target.

Just curious... Is there a limit of travel miles or travel costs that the staff can incur during this 6 month long period? I'm sure there must be. If so, I wonder if they will burn through it early. Also seems like the previous staff never put on miles like this during this short a time period.

Kevin, it's been so quiet on Kyree Walker. For a guy that might enroll this semester now, that is weird. Are we out? Is he gonna go somewhere random like WKU?

"It was on campus," Walton said of Musselman's mid-week visit. "It went well. The dialogue was good and informative. I believe coach and staff will be returning next week or soon."

One of the top shooters in the country, Walton talked of a possible visit to Arkansas.

"We're working on that," Walton said. "We plan on scheduling visits after this week once we get a feel from the coaches that come up here."

LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas's entire coaching staff is back in Fayetteville on Friday for the weekend official visit of priority 2020 prospect Chris Moore (read all about that here: https://forums.hogville.net/index.php?topic=690513.0), but they wrapped up week two of the current NCAA recruiting period with a busy Thursday that included a new offer to a Top 50 prospect in the 2021 class.

Junior Hunter Sallis (6-4 combo guard, Millard North in Omaha, Neb., composite national No. 43 / 4-star prospect) was paid a visit at practice on Thursday by Arkansas associate head coach Chris Crutchfield, a visit that resulted in Sallis picking up a scholarship offer from the Hogs.

"This morning we had a workout at 7 ... after that, he (Crutchfield) offered me a scholarship," Sallis said on Thursday, adding that he is interested in visiting Arkansas in the future.

"He (Crutchfield) sent me some film," Sallis said. "They really fit into my style of play which caught my interest, and he seems like a really nice guy."

Sallis caught the eye of Arkansas's coaching staff in summer grassroots play. He also holds offers from Iowa, Iowa State, California-Berkeley, Kansas State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Creighton.

"He's 6-4 pushing 6-5, and I think he's going to leave here about 6-7 in a couple of years," Millard North head coach Tim Canon said on Thursday. "He can play the wing, he has played the point a lot for us. He does both. He's really good at slashing off the dribble. He's getting bigger and stronger, which allows him to get up and dunk over people in traffic. 

"Good defender. Everybody knows about his offense, but he consistently shut down whoever we put him on."

Crutchfield was also in Hopkins, MN, on Thursday to see 2020 Arkansas offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, composite national No. 96 / 4-star prospect), marking the staff's second visit with him as head coach Eric Musselman was in last week.

"We're gonna try to schedule one (a visit) by the end of this week," said Walton, who just picked up an offer from North Carolina to go with offers from the Hogs, Arizona, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio State, and others.

Musselman made at least a couple of visits on Thursday, including a stop at Andrews Osborne Academy in Ohio to see 2020 Hog offer Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8 small forward / wing, Canada native, composite national No. 78 / 4-star prospect).

"It was great meeting HC Mussleman today," Ambrose-Hylton said on Thursday. "He talked about Arkansas, the school, the program and team, and how I could contribute."

It was the Hogs coaching staff's second trip out in the past two weeks to see Ambrose Hylton, who recently named Arkansas among his Top 10 schools. In addition to the Hogs, he's down to Arizona State, California-Berkeley, Clemson, Dayton, Florida, Illinois, St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, and Virginia Tech.

He took an official visit to Dayton the weekend of Sept. 6-8, and he recently picked up new offers from Southern California and North Carolina State.

"Working on one," Ambrose-Hylton said of scheduling a date to take an official visit to Arkansas.

Musselman also stopped by Brush High School in Ohio to see 2020 big man John Hugley (6-9, 240, center, national No. 74 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Hugley reportedly holds offers from North Carolina State, Miami, Missouri, Florida, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Pittsburgh among others.

Hogs assistant coach Clay Moser was in Arkansas on Thursday to see in-state prospects, including 2022 Hog offer and national Top 35 / 4-star Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills)

"It was good meeting Coach Moser and looking forward to building a relationship with the coaching staff over the next couple of years," said Smith, who was seen twice in the past week at practice by Arkansas coaches. Auburn and Oral Roberts were also at Smith's practice on Thursday.

Moser stopped by Jacksonville to see practice on Thursday. The Titans have a squad loaded with talent, including 2021 prospects Jordan Maxwell (6-4 wing) and Ryan Maxwell, Jr. (6-5 combo forward).

LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas Razorbacks coaches continued on the road to see priority prospects on Wednesday, including head coach Eric Musselman traveling to Dallas to visit 2021 Hog offer and 5-star target Harrison Ingram.

To read more about Ingram (6-7 combo forward, Dallas St. Mark's, composite national No. 17 / 5-star prospect) and his thoughts on Musselman's stop at his school and an upcoming return trip to Fayetteville for his second visit with the Hogs, click the link: https://forums.hogville.net/index.php?topic=688716.0

Arkansas associate head coach Chris Crutchfield was at Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, Kan., on Wednesday to see 2021 Hogs offers Kendall Brown (6-7 small forward / wing, Minnesota native, composite national No. 21 / 5-star prospect) and Zach Clemence (6-10 forward / center,  composite national Top 50 / 4-star prospect).

"Iím gonna come visit Arkansas, we just have to find a good date," Brown said.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser was in Memphis and West Memphis on Wednesday to check in on 2021 Hog offer Kennedy Chandler (6-1 point guard, Briarcrest Christian, composite national No. 20 / 5-star prospect) and 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Moser saw Chandler and met with his coaches, and he watched Moore at Blue Devils' practice. Moore was also visited on Wednesday by Auburn coaches -- both at practice and in-home. Musselman and Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams had an in-home visit with Moore on Sept. 9, which was the first day of the current NCAA recruiting period.

Williams was in Macon, Ga., on Wednesday to see 2021 Hog offer Kowacie Reeves, Jr. (6-5 combo guard, national No. 43 / 4-star prospect according to Rivals.com)

"Went very well ..." Reeves said. "Coach Williams will be giving me some dates (to visit Arkansas) and I will be confirming sometime soon."

Although Musselman and Crutchfield were in to see 2020 Hog offer Moses Moody (6-6 wing, ESPN national No. 28 prospect) on Tuesday at Montverde Academy in Florida, on Wednesday the Little Rock native talked briefly about the visit and a source confirmed all but one of his official visit destinations and dates.

Tuesday, Sept. 16 ...

By Kevin McPherson

LITTLE ROCK -- It was Super Tuesday for the Arkansas Razorbacks as three priority 2020 targets -- Moses Moody, Kyree Walker, and Khalen "KK" Robinson -- were visited by Hog coaches, and as a topper later in the day both Walker and Robinson locked in their official visit dates with the Hogs.

After head coach Eric Musselman stopped by Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., on Tuesday morning to provide an hour of instruction at the Arkansas Basketball Coaches Association coaches clinic -- he brought five Hoop Hog staffers with him (Anthony Ruta, Hays Myers, Michael Musselman, Pat Ackerman, and Riley Hall) -- Musselman joined up with associate head coach Chris Crutchfield to visit Moody (6-6 shooting guard, Little Rock native, ESPN national No. 28 prospect) at Montverde Academy in Florida.

It was Arkansas's second trip to Montverde since Sept. 9 to visit Moody, who has an official visit set to Fayetteville for the weekend of Oct. 18-20.

That will be the same weekend that Robinson (6-1 point guard, Bryant, composite national No. 72 / 4-star prospect) will take his official visit to Arkansas. Assistant coach Clay Moser visited Robinson at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia on Tuesday, and later in the day Robinson confirmed his Oct. 18-20 official visit date with the Hogs.

"We have one (a date set), Oct. 18-20 I believe with Moses (Moody)," said Robinson, who also has an OV set with Kansas the weekend of Oct. 4-6.

Robinson has been visited twice by Arkansas coaches in the past week -- first by assistant coach Corey Williams last Wednesday, and then with Moser on Tuesday.

"They were great," Robinson said of his visits from Williams and Moser. "Had some great conversations just getting to know the coaches and building that bond."

According to a source, Walker (6-5 combo guard, Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, composite national No. 34 / 4-star) locked in his official visit date to Arkansas for the weekend of Oct. 4-6. He will presumably attend the annual Red-White game being played on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Barnhill Arena, which is hosting its first men's basketball game in nearly 26 years.

Walker was visited Tuesday at Hillcrest Prep by Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams.

Walker's situation is unique in that he is close to graduating high school, and assuming he does during the fall semester he could enroll at an NCAA Division I school at mid-term in time for the 2020 spring semester, which if he landed at Arkansas, for example, it would allow him to potentially play in as many as 20 games. Professional basketball opportunities overseas are also on the table for Walker.


While Moser was at Oak Hill visiting with Robinson, he was also able to watch 2021 Arkansas offer Jalen Ricks (6-6 wing, Sherwood, Ark., Joe Johnson Hawks) practice.

Linked below is a photo of Moses Moody with Arkansas coaches Eric Musselman and Chris Crutchfield from Tuesday's visit, followed by my story published on Monday (Sept. 16) at Hogville.net detailing other visits and recruiting news ...

EDIT / UPDATE (3:05 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 16, 2019): Monday marks Head Hog Eric Musselman's second stop in a week to see 2020 Arkansas offer Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, Fort Smith Northside, campoiste national No. 69 / 4-star prospect) ... last Tuesday it was Muss & assistant coach Clay Moser stopping in at Northside, & Monday it's Muss & asssitant coach Corey Williams.

EDIT / UPDATE (2:40 p.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 16, 2019): 2021 Arkansas offer & 5-star combo forward Harrison Ingram on Monday confirmed that Razorbacks head coach Eric Musselman will be at Dallas St. Mark's to see him at mid-week.

"Just got word from Coach Musselman he will be in to see me on Wednesday afternoon!!" Harrison said.

EDIT / UPDATE (10:29 a.m. CT, Monday, Sept. 16, 2019): Per source, Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser will be in Oklahoma on Monday to see 2020 Arkansas offers Rondel Walker (6-3 CG, Putnam City West, ESPN national No. 45 / 4-star) & Bryce Thompson (6-4 SG, Tulsa Booker T. Washington, ESPN Nat'l No. 24 / 5-star).

By Kevin McPherson

LITTLE ROCK -- With the first week of the NCAA recruiting period under their collective belt -- it included more than 25 in-home or on-campus visits plus a weekend visitor in Fayetteville -- the Arkansas Razorbacks coaches are back on the road beginning today (Monday, Sept. 16) for a second round of visits with at least two more visitors expected in Fayetteville this weekend (Sept. 20-22).

The Arkansas staff's week of travel will be headlined by head coach Eric Musselman and associate head coach Chris Crutchfield making a trip out to Montverde Academy (Fla.) on Tuesday to visit 2020 Hog offer and Little Rock native Moses Moody (6-6 shooting guard, ESPN national No. 28 / 5-star prospect).

Coaches from Kansas are also expected in Tuesday to see Moody. Last week, Hogs assistant coach Clay Moser traveled to Montverde to visit Moody, as did coaches from Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, and Oregon among others.

Moody, who took an official visit to Ohio State over Labor Day weekend and has one set up to Michigan for this upcoming weekend, has an official visit to Arkansas scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 18-20. He took an unofficial visit to Arkansas on June 30. Moody's also considering OVs to Florida, Kansas, Oregon, and Southern Cal.

In a related matter, 2020 Arkansas offer Khalen "KK" Robinson (6-1 point guard, Oak Hill Academy in Virginia by way of Bryant, composite national No. 72 / 4-star prospect) said while Hogs assistant coach Corey Williams visited him at Oak Hill last Wednesday the two walked about Robinson taking his official visit to Arkansas the same weekend as Moody.

"We were talking about possibly scheduling a visit when Moses is visiting there," Robinson said, adding that is what he'd like to do.

In addition to Arkansas, coaches from TCU and Illinois were out to see Robinson last week. He has those three schools plus Kansas, Texas A&M, Iowa State, and Illinois on his list of Top 7 schools. Robinson took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late August. He also took an unofficial visit to TCU earlier in the summer.

Later today, Williams will be at Fort Smith Northside for the Hog coaches' second trip within a week to see 2020 Arkansas offer Jaylin Williams (6-10 forward / center, composite national No. 69 / 4-star prospect) at practice. Last week it was Musselman and Moser, and couting special assitant Hays Myers visit to Northside in the spring it will be Arkansas's third stop to visit Williams at his school.

"Coach Williams is coming to see me tomorrow (Monday)," Jaylin Williams confirmed Sunday night. "I havenít set up an OV yet."

Williams, who took an unofficial visit to Arkansas in late June before returning to campus for a photo shoot earlier this month, took an official visit to Oklahoma State in June. He's likely to set up OVs to Auburn and Texas A&M with Iowa State, Illinois, and UConn also vying for visits.

Additionally, Arkansas coaches are expected to make return trips this week to see 2021 Hog offer and 5-star Harrison Ingram (6-7 combo forward, Dallas St. Mark's, composite national No. 18 prospect); 2020 Hog offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, Hopkins, MN, composite national No. 95 / 4-star prospect); and 2020 Hog offer Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8 small forward / wing, Andrews Osborne Academy in Ohio, composite national No. 77 / 45-star prospect). All three players were seen by Razorbacks coaches last week.

Arkansas coaches could be looking to visit 2020 Hog offer Kyree Walker (6-5 combo guard, Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, composite national No. 35 / 4-star prospect) this week, according to Walker's Dad, Khari Walker, who also said his son is likely to take an official visit to Arkansas in "early October."

The staff will also be out to do on-campus visits for the first time with some recruits with Arkansas offers, including 2021 Kowacie Reeves, Jr. (6-5 CG, Westside High School, Macon, Ga., composite national No. 94 / 4-star prospect).

"(Arkansas assistant coach Corey Williams is) coming this Tuesday, and I am planning to take a visit (to UA)," Reeves said on Sunday. "I just donít have a date yet."

Weekend headliners are 2020 Hog offers Chris Moore and Rondel Walker who will be taking visits to Arkansas.

Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com) is taking his second official visit to Arkanas in just over a year, and it will be his first time on campus with the new coaching staff in place. Moore is also looking to take official visits to Iowa State and Memphis in the coming weeks, with Auburn and Texas A&M in line for visits as well. Musselman and Williams were in West Memphis last Monday (Sept. 9) for an in-home visit with Moore.

Walker (6-3 combo guard, Putnam City West in Oklahoma, ESPN national No. 45 / 4-star prospect) will take his second visit to Arkansas since Aug. 1. He was visited by Musselman and Crutchfield last week at his school, and he took an official visit to Oklahoma State earlier this month.

Kevin, obviously adding Boykins to the staff can do nothing but help with Walker and Thompson. On their visits, are they able to talk with him and would that be the only contact they are able to have with him?

They can definitely meet him on-campus. Not sure about the rules for contact when prospects are not on campus, but would think he can talk to them on the phone.

I like that the staff is putting the full court press on the Arkansas players and other key regional players along with the skilled forwards with height and the guys who can shoot it from deep.  I hope that they do have Moody and Robinson visit at the same time and I think that could be a positive.

Weekend headliners are 2020 Hog offers Chris Moore and Rondel Walker who will be taking visits to Arkansas.

Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com) is taking his second official visit to Arkanas in just over a year, and it will be his first time on campus with the new coaching staff in place. Williams Moore (fixed that for ya!) is also looking to take official visits to Iowa State and Memphis in the coming weeks, with Auburn and Texas A&M in line for visits as well. Musselman and Williams were in West Memphis last Monday (Sept. 9) for an in-home visit with Moore.

Walker (6-3 combo guard, Putnam City West in Oklahoma, ESPN national No. 45 / 4-star prospect) will take his second visit to Arkansas since Aug. 1. He was visited by Musselman and Crutchfield last week at his school, and he took an official visit to Oklahoma State earlier this month.

Is Walker's visit an official or unofficial visit?

"Iím gonna come visit Arkansas, we just have to find a good date," Brown said.

Arkansas assistant coach Clay Moser was in Memphis and West Memphis on Wednesday to check in on 2021 Hog offer Kennedy Chandler (6-1 point guard, Briarcrest Christian, composite national No. 20 / 5-star prospect) and 2020 Hog offer Chris Moore (6-6 combo forward, West Memphis, national No. 93 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Moser saw Chandler and met with his coaches, and he watched Moore at Blue Devils' practice. Moore was also visited on Wednesday by Auburn coaches -- both at practice and in-home.

LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas's entire coaching staff is back in Fayetteville on Friday for the weekend official visit of priority 2020 prospect Chris Moore (read all about that here: https://forums.hogville.net/index.php?topic=690513.0), but they wrapped up week two of the current NCAA recruiting period with a busy Thursday that included a new offer to a Top 50 prospect in the 2021 class.

Junior Hunter Sallis (6-4 combo guard, Millard North in Omaha, Neb., composite national No. 43 / 4-star prospect) was paid a visit at practice on Thursday by Arkansas associate head coach Chris Crutchfield, a visit that resulted in Sallis picking up a scholarship offer from the Hogs.

"This morning we had a workout at 7 ... after that, he (Crutchfield) offered me a scholarship," Sallis said on Thursday, adding that he is interested in visiting Arkansas in the future.

"He (Crutchfield) sent me some film," Sallis said. "They really fit into my style of play which caught my interest, and he seems like a really nice guy."

Sallis caught the eye of Arkansas's coaching staff in summer grassroots play. He also holds offers from Iowa, Iowa State, California-Berkeley, Kansas State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Creighton.

"He's 6-4 pushing 6-5, and I think he's going to leave here about 6-7 in a couple of years," Millard North head coach Tim Canon said on Thursday. "He can play the wing, he has played the point a lot for us. He does both. He's really good at slashing off the dribble. He's getting bigger and stronger, which allows him to get up and dunk over people in traffic. 

"Good defender. Everybody knows about his offense, but he consistently shut down whoever we put him on."

Crutchfield was also in Hopkins, MN, on Thursday to see 2020 Arkansas offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, composite national No. 96 / 4-star prospect), marking the staff's second visit with him as head coach Eric Musselman was in last week.

"We're gonna try to schedule one (a visit) by the end of this week," said Walton, who just picked up an offer from North Carolina to go with offers from the Hogs, Arizona, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio State, and others.

Musselman made at least a couple of visits on Thursday, including a stop at Andrews Osborne Academy in Ohio to see 2020 Hog offer Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8 small forward / wing, Canada native, composite national No. 78 / 4-star prospect).

"It was great meeting HC Mussleman today," Ambrose-Hylton said on Thursday. "He talked about Arkansas, the school, the program and team, and how I could contribute."

It was the Hogs coaching staff's second trip out in the past two weeks to see Ambrose Hylton, who recently named Arkansas among his Top 10 schools. In addition to the Hogs, he's down to Arizona State, California-Berkeley, Clemson, Dayton, Florida, Illinois, St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, and Virginia Tech.

He took an official visit to Dayton the weekend of Sept. 6-8, and he recently picked up new offers from Southern California and North Carolina State.

"Working on one," Ambrose-Hylton said of scheduling a date to take an official visit to Arkansas.

Musselman also stopped by Brush High School in Ohio to see 2020 big man John Hugley (6-9, 240, center, national No. 74 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Hugley reportedly holds offers from North Carolina State, Miami, Missouri, Florida, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Pittsburgh among others.

Hogs assistant coach Clay Moser was in Arkansas on Thursday to see in-state prospects, including 2022 Hog offer and national Top 35 / 4-star Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills)

"It was good meeting Coach Moser and looking forward to building a relationship with the coaching staff over the next couple of years," said Smith, who was seen twice in the past week at practice by Arkansas coaches. Auburn and Oral Roberts were also at Smith's practice on Thursday.

Moser stopped by Jacksonville to see practice on Thursday. The Titans have a squad loaded with talent, including 2021 prospects Jordan Maxwell (6-4 wing) and Ryan Maxwell, Jr. (6-5 combo forward).

Kevin, I wanted to post this in this thread as a follow up to what you posted in the Lampkin thread since what I am posting fits better overall for this thread.  You can also correct me as needed.  From the pictures and or tweets or player tweets from what is listed below I wasn't sure on Thompson as I know Crutchfield was in the picture of the practice and that Moser was referenced by Walton and in a picture of him without the mention of Musselman.

So far Eric Musselman has visited the following

1st Week
Chris Moore
Jaylin Williams
Bryce Thompson
Kerwin Walton

2nd Week
Jaylin Williams
Moses Moody
Harrison Ingram
Keon Ambrose-Hylton
John Hugley

That is not to say others are higher priorities than these and other factors such as distance and logistics along with recent or upcoming campus visits involving players may have dictated things along with Muss wanted to eyeball certain players he is intrigued with as well.

Yes, in my post immediately preceding yours, the first pic is Muss with Keon-Ambrose-Hylton, the second is Muss with John Hugley, and the third is Clay Moser with Nick Smith, Jr.

LITTLE ROCK -- Arkansas's entire coaching staff is back in Fayetteville on Friday for the weekend official visit of priority 2020 prospect Chris Moore (read all about that here: https://forums.hogville.net/index.php?topic=690513.0), but they wrapped up week two of the current NCAA recruiting period with a busy Thursday that included a new offer to a Top 50 prospect in the 2021 class.

Junior Hunter Sallis (6-4 combo guard, Millard North in Omaha, Neb., composite national No. 43 / 4-star prospect) was paid a visit at practice on Thursday by Arkansas associate head coach Chris Crutchfield, a visit that resulted in Sallis picking up a scholarship offer from the Hogs.

"This morning we had a workout at 7 ... after that, he (Crutchfield) offered me a scholarship," Sallis said on Thursday, adding that he is interested in visiting Arkansas in the future.

"He (Crutchfield) sent me some film," Sallis said. "They really fit into my style of play which caught my interest, and he seems like a really nice guy."

Sallis caught the eye of Arkansas's coaching staff in summer grassroots play. He also holds offers from Iowa, Iowa State, California-Berkeley, Kansas State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Creighton.

"He's 6-4 pushing 6-5, and I think he's going to leave here about 6-7 in a couple of years," Millard North head coach Tim Canon said on Thursday. "He can play the wing, he has played the point a lot for us. He does both. He's really good at slashing off the dribble. He's getting bigger and stronger, which allows him to get up and dunk over people in traffic. 

"Good defender. Everybody knows about his offense, but he consistently shut down whoever we put him on."

Crutchfield was also in Hopkins, MN, on Thursday to see 2020 Arkansas offer Kerwin Walton (6-4 shooting guard, composite national No. 96 / 4-star prospect), marking the staff's second visit with him as head coach Eric Musselman was in last week.

"We're gonna try to schedule one (a visit) by the end of this week," said Walton, who just picked up an offer from North Carolina to go with offers from the Hogs, Arizona, Iowa State, Minnesota, Ohio State, and others.

Musselman made at least a couple of visits on Thursday, including a stop at Andrews Osborne Academy in Ohio to see 2020 Hog offer Keon Ambrose-Hylton (6-8 small forward / wing, Canada native, composite national No. 78 / 4-star prospect).

"It was great meeting HC Mussleman today," Ambrose-Hylton said on Thursday. "He talked about Arkansas, the school, the program and team, and how I could contribute."

It was the Hogs coaching staff's second trip out in the past two weeks to see Ambrose Hylton, who recently named Arkansas among his Top 10 schools. In addition to the Hogs, he's down to Arizona State, California-Berkeley, Clemson, Dayton, Florida, Illinois, St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, and Virginia Tech.

He took an official visit to Dayton the weekend of Sept. 6-8, and he recently picked up new offers from Southern California and North Carolina State.

"Working on one," Ambrose-Hylton said of scheduling a date to take an official visit to Arkansas.

Musselman also stopped by Brush High School in Ohio to see 2020 big man John Hugley (6-9, 240, center, national No. 74 / 4-star prospect according to 247Sports.com).

Hugley reportedly holds offers from North Carolina State, Miami, Missouri, Florida, Cincinnati, Kansas State, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Pittsburgh among others.

Hogs assistant coach Clay Moser was in Arkansas on Thursday to see in-state prospects, including 2022 Hog offer and national Top 35 / 4-star Nick Smith, Jr. (6-3 combo guard, Sylvan Hills)

"It was good meeting Coach Moser and looking forward to building a relationship with the coaching staff over the next couple of years," said Smith, who was seen twice in the past week at practice by Arkansas coaches. Auburn and Oral Roberts were also at Smith's practice on Thursday.

Moser stopped by Jacksonville to see practice on Thursday. The Titans have a squad loaded with talent, including 2021 prospects Jordan Maxwell (6-4 wing) and Ryan Maxwell, Jr. (6-5 combo forward).
