Arkansas loses its only 2021 basketball commit as 4-star forward Duncan Powell announces decommitment
It’s back to square one for Eric Musselman and his Arkansas coaching staff when it comes to the 2021 recruiting cycle as the Razorbacks just suffered a decommitment on the recruiting trail.
Four-star Huntington, West Virginia native Duncan Powell originally committed to Arkansas back on Sept. 26, 2019, but announced on Wednesday his decision to open his college recruitment back up.
Here’s the statement released by Powell:
“I would like to thank Coach Musselman and staff for believing me and all the Arkansas fans for supporting me. However, I am reopening my recruitment 100 percent. Arkansas will still be a heavily considered school. I just want to make sure I am making the right decision for my college career. Thank you all, please respect my decision.”
The 6-foot-8, 200-pound Powell ranks as the No. 129 overall prospect in the nation and the No. 26 power forward in the 2021 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
It’s not all bad news for the Arkansas basketball on the recruiting trail as Musselman and his Razorbacks currently have a top 10 recruiting class for the 2020 recruiting cycle. With plenty of time to go before the 2021 recruiting class signs, the Razorbacks may even find a way to add Powell back into the fold before all is said and done.
