Arkansas lands commitment from elite in-state point guard
Arkansas basketball is rolling in recruiting under new coach Eric Musselman.
The Razorbacks picked up PG K.K. Robinson out of Bryant, Arkansas, a 6-foot and 175 pounder listed as a 4-star prospect by 247Sports. Arkansas now has the No. 5 recruiting class in the 247Sports Team Rankings with the addition of Robinson. Musselman in 2020 has four 4-star recruits. He has a reported 16 offers.
Robinson chose Arkansas over Kansas, and he’s expected to sign his national letter of intent during the spring signing period that begins in mid-April. He also held offers from Texas Tech, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, TCU and Vanderbilt.
All four players in the class are top 100 players. Robinson is ranked the No. 14 player at his position, as he’s enrolled at Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia.
In his video to announce the decision, Robinson talked about going to 5 a.m. practices and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
“When the time came, I wanted to be able to perform at the highest (level),” he said. “I faced a ton of adversity, but by God’s grace and my support system, I was able to emerge.”
Kevin McPherson of KARK.com said Robinson is the best two-way player in the state.
“The visit was amazing — the coaches, the players, the fans, just everything,” Robinson said on Oct. 20 shortly after completing his OV. “Coach (Musselman) told me how I’d fit in, how I’d evolve if I went there.”
