Make it three in-state offers. The Razorbacks also offered 2018 prospect Connor Vanover from Little Rock (Arkansas Baptist). He's going to be a sophomore this season but is already 7'3" and can shoot. He was recently named to the USA Basketball U16 national team. Arkansas is his third SEC offer after Alabama and Ole Miss. He's certainly in position to be a top prospect over the next few years.

There was lots of basketball recruiting activity going on over the last week as coaches around the country made their way to the Peach Jam AAU tournament, one of the country's biggest gatherings of AAU talent. Mike Anderson and at least some of his assistants were in attendance to watch several prospects, and today made offers to a pair of in-state prospects.
Eric Curry is a a 2016 recruit from Little Rock (Southwest Christian Academy). He's a 6'8" forward who is a classic high motor/Mike Anderson-type of player. He was also offered by Minnesota this week, and already held offers from SMU, Oklahoma State, VCU, St. Louis, and Western Kentucky. He plays on the Arkansas Wings along with Malik Monk.
The Razorbacks have at least five more openings for the 2016 class

Would say 5 best stock boosting 2016 bigs at Peach Jam..Kevin Marfo, Cyril Langevin, Eric Curry, Ben Kone, and Bruno Fernando— Corey Evans (@coreyevans_10) July 13, 2015
Arkansas also offered 2017 prospect Daniel Gafford from El Dorado. The Hogs may only have as few as two scholarships available so they have to be choosy this early in the process for this class, and Gafford has been blowing up lately. He's listed as a 4* recruit ranked 39th in the country on Scout. He's a 6'10" 210 lb PF/C. Obviously, if the rating holds up for another year, he'll be a hot prospect. He also reportedly picked up an offer from Kansas.
