The ink is dry as K.K. Robinson becomes the 6th recruit to sign with Arkansas in the 2020 class. Robinson, of Bryant, Arkansas, played at the prestigious Oak Hill Academy In Virginia to finish his high school career. Oak Hill finished in the Top 25 Nationally this season. Robinson is a smooth, left-handed point guard who can shoot the 3, can find his open teammates, and plus defender.
Davonte Davis was the first to sign with Arkansas back on November 19. Davis was originally committed to Oklahoma State. Head Coach Eric Musselman contacted not long after Davis re-opened his recruitment on October 1. It didn’t take Davonte long to decide he wanted to play on the Hill. Just 12 days after his de-commitment, Davis announced to Twitter that he would stay home. The Jacksonville native is point guard with great length and scoring ability.
Vance Jackson comes to Arkansas as a graduate transfer from New Mexico. He signed on the opening day(April 15) of the Late Signing Period. Jackson played against Nevada while Eric Musselman was the head coach in Reno. Jackson will likely play the 4 spot for the Hogs, but is capable of defending multiple positions. Vance can shoot from the 3 and rebounds well.
Jalen Tate is a graduate transfer from Northern Kentucky. He also signed on April 15. Tate is the reigning Horizon League Defensive Player of the Year and Horizon League Tournament MVP. I see Tate playing a similar role as Jimmy Whitt on next year’s team. Tate is athletic and very gifted defensively.
Jaylin Williams was the 3rd recruit to sign on the 15th. The big man from Fort Smith Northside comes to Arkansas as the highest rated big man since Daniel Gafford. Williams was a double-double machine in high school. He is very versatile on offense and a great rebounder.
Moses Moody is the headliner of the class and signed on April 17th. He has a composite ranking of #45 in the nation. Moody spent his final 2 years of high school at the superstar factory, Monteverde Academy. Monteverde was undefeated this season and ranked #1 nationally. Moody is a lights out shooter and can score from all 3 levels.
As of now, it appears Arkansas is done with the 2020 class. Mason Jones will likely stay in the draft, but we are still awaiting to see if Isaiah Joe test the NBA waters. The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft is April 26th.
