Arkansas basketball takes no days off. They even kick boxed and climbed rock walls in their free time.
Arkansas Guard/Forward Moses Moody is looking to become the first lottery pick in Razorback history. After signing with Klutch Sports Agency, he and five other players in the 2021 NBA Draft competed at Klutch’s Pro Day earlier in the week. He looked like a lottery pick among the others.
Arkansas is also among finalists for Oral Roberts transfer Kevin Obanor. Obanor is a familiar name to Razorback fans because the hogs beat Oral Roberts twice last season, once in December and once in the Sweet 16. Arkansas and Texas Tech are the two finalists for his services. If he were to join the hogs, they would be pushed immediately into pre-season top five conversation and would be one of if not the clear favorite to win the SEC. Obanor would join fellow transfers Au’Diese Toney (Pittsburgh), Stanley Umude (South Dakota), Chris Lykes (Miami), Jaxson Robinson (Texas A&M). (Update: Obanor has committed to Texas Tech).
