Arkansas adds 5th top-100 recruit, 7th-ranked Jordan Walsh
Five-star wing Jordan Walsh will join Arkansas' increasingly exceptional 2022 class, he announced Thursday.
"The difference was the coaching staff and especially Coach (Eric) Musselman," Walsh said, according to EPSN's Jeff Borzello and Paul Biancardi. "The fans are wild and it's the only game in town. I want to win a national championship when I am there."
Previously the top uncommitted recruit on the 2022 ESPN 100, the 6-foot-7 small forward is listed as the second-ranked player at his position and the No. 7 recruit overall.
The Razorbacks are now set to have five players in the ESPN 100: shooting guard Nick Smith (No. 6), shooting guard Derrian Ford (No. 68), small forward Barry Dunning (No. 76), and shooting guard Joseph Pinion (No. 93).
Arkansas advanced to the Elite Eight in last season's March Madness and ultimately finished 10th in the AP Poll.
