When Coach Eric Musselman was hired at Arkansas, it quickly grabbed my attention. I didn’t know much about him, but I’m so thrilled that this hire was made. To be a top tier program in this country, there are several things that need to align. One of the biggest being a thorough and high energy coach.
I can assure you that you won’t find many people in this state who would doubt Coach Musselman’s energy level.
Musselman has brought excitement and energy to this program that has undoubtedly leaked into other programs such as football, baseball and more. After recently gaining commitments from 5 star talents Jordan Walsh and Nick Smith Jr. the excitement level is even higher. Not to mention a loaded team this season with more than enough talent for one squad.
Expectations are high for this squad and for good reason. The recent Red/White basketball game at Barnhill Arena proved just how real the “talent chatter” is about this team.
The future is very bright at Arkansas with Musselman in charge of the men’s basketball program. He’s proven his coaching ability in big games, he’s made everyone very aware of his high school recruiting ability, need I even mention the transfer portal? This guy is legit and he proves his passion weekly.
Need proof of that passion? Watch his Twitter account. This is one of those things that is so powerful, the social presence for our program, especially with recruits is a MUST.
I’m so ready for this season and wish the best of luck to Coach Musselman, his staff and all the players.
