The Portal and The Importer - Week of May 7

NCAA Basketball: Mountain West Conference Tournament- Utah St vs UNLV Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Portal And The Importer

Arkansas Head Coach Eric Musselman has been deemed “The Importer” by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. Rothstein is known for his tweets that almost seemed scheduled after an Arkansas win.

The Arkansas staff contacted 75 transfers last recruiting cycle and that’s just the ones that were reported.

Each week I will update this with the new contacts Arkansas has made in the portal. Plus, updates on commitments and cut lists.

Something to remember about the transfer portal. Just because Arkansas has contacted a player doesn’t mean they are a top priority. If there’s anything we have learned about this staff is they are thorough. It is realistic to think that they have a list of their top priorities and then backups.

Another thing to remember is just because Arkansas makes a cut list for a recruit means they would take them. Recruits often add top programs to their cut lists for notoriety.
