Arkansas has landed a commitment from highly-sought-after recruit Derrian Ford, released via his Twitter. Ford is the number 50 player in the country, and the number three player in the state of Arkansas, according to 247Sports.
The 6’3, 194 pound Magnolia, Arkansas native held over 20 offers, and chose the Hogs over the likes of Baylor, Kansas, and a plethora of other schools.
Last season, Ford led the Magnolia Panthers to a 23-1 record, with a trip to the Class 4A semifinals. He averaged 23.2 points, to go along with seven rebounds and three assists. He was awarded the Gatorade Player of the Year award for the 2020-2021 season, and raked in plenty of other awards to go along with that.
Ford becomes the third commit of the 2022 class, joining fellow in-state commit Joseph Pinion and 4-star recruit Barry Dunning from Alabama. The Razorbacks currently are #3 in the national recruiting rankings.
