That didn't take long.
Less than 24 hours after receiving a scholarship offer from Arkansas, Little Rock Mills small forward Darious Hall has committed to the Razorbacks.
Yeahhhhh WPS! pic.twitter.com/DEmzL2ZVps— Big.dayday (@bigdayday4) March 15, 2016
Hall is a 2017 prospect and has not yet been rated on the recruiting services and isn't showing offers, although Richard Davenport reports Hall has an offer from Sun Belt Champion Little Rock and has been drawing interest from Alabama, Memphis, and others.
There is also little video of Hall. Those who've seen him describe him as a very athletic player who can get to the rim because he is a skilled ball-handler, although he has not yet shown he is a great shooter. This sounds like a young Michael Qualls with better handles. Qualls' shot was developed over time at Arkansas. He didn't come in with it. And Hall is still a junior in high school. He has plenty of time to get better with it.
Here is a short clip of highlights that were released last night.

This is Arkansas' second commitment in the 2017 class, joining high 4* prospect Daniel Gafford from El Dorado. As of right now, the Razorbacks are scheduled to have three seniors leave the program next year, although that number could shrink if Manny Watkins is moved back to walk-on status or if somebody leaves. Gafford and Hall is a great start to the 2017 class, and hopefully will quell some of the complaints of Mike Anderson's in-state recruiting efforts.
