Arkansas is on the board in the class of 2023. The first commitment of the class comes from one of the top-30 prospects in the country.

Layden Blocker, a point guard out of Sunrise Christian in Kansas, announced his pledge to Eric Musselman’s program on Saturday.

Blocker told ESPN that he hopes to play in the NBA, and Musselman’s experience coaching in the league appealed to him.

Blocker, a Little Rock native, is listed at 6-2, 175 pounds and rated 4-stars, the No. 5 point guard and No. 29 prospect overall in the class of 2023 on the 247Sports Composite. He has 21 scholarship offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
