WATCH: Eric Musselman meets with his Arkansas players for the first time
Not a single player on the Arkansas roster was recruited to Fayetteville by Eric Musselman. That’s a tough situation for both he and his players moving forward as trust won’t come immediately for anyone in that relationship.
The process of building that up began this weekend, however, as Musselman called a team meeting immediately upon arriving in Fayetteville. The new leader of the Razorback basketball program left a solid Nevada program he built to take the Arkansas job but he won’t match that level of success on the court in the near future without getting a high level of buy-in from his new players.
Arkansas recently shared a video of Coach Musselman relaying his message to his players as he hopes to build upon and improve what Mike Anderson accomplished on The Hill:
I'm going to love you guys.
I'm going to push you guys.
And I can promise you that I will help you become the best player that you can become. pic.twitter.com/iuFkuuhYOl
