The makeover of the Razorback roster continues in Fayetteville as Eric Musselman’s Arkansas program has just landed another transfer.
The program’s latest commitment comes from Jacksonville University guard JD Notae, who was Atlantic Sun Conference freshman of the year two seasons ago and averaged over 15 points per game in both of his seasons at Jacksonville. Notae will have to sit out next season but has two years of eligibility remaining once he can see the court for the Razorbacks.
Notae’s decision comes after Cal center and Little Rock native Connor Vanover announced he plans to transfer to Arkansas. In addition to those two players, Iowa grad transfer Isaiah Moss has also elected to play for Musselman in Fayetteville. Moss will be eligible immediately, however, unlike Notae and Vanover.
In total, the Razorbacks have now landed four transfers since Musselman was hired in Fayetteville as UNC Wilmington forward Jeantal Cylla was the first to join the program via transfer. Like Moss, Cylla is a graduate transfer that can play next season.
Notae announced his decision on Wednesday with the following message on Twitter:
“First I want to thank God for giving me another opportunity to get an education and play basketball. I also want to thank all the coaches who give me a chance to be apart of there [sic] program. With the help of my family and friends, I’m excited to continue my career at the University of Arkansas!!!”
