Taking a look at Nick Smith, Jordan Walsh, and Arkansas’ 2022 class ahead of the signing period

2022 Signees (per 247sports)
6.Nick Smith (#2CG) North Little Rock,AR (North Little Rock)
Nick Smith’s ability to run the point, score, and win is why he is the perfect fit for Eric Musselman’s team. Smith could develop his outside shot a bit but the likely top three pick in the 2023 NBA Draft will be Arkansas’ engine in the 2022-2023 season.

18.Jordan Walsh (#5SF) DeSoto,TX (Link Academy)
Jordan Walsh is a versatile forward who is an exceptional passer, defender, and a good scorer. Walsh will likely have to play out of position in Arkansas’ offense but his versatility will help him out.

22.Anthony Black (#3PG) Ducanville,TX (Duncanville)
The latest addition to Arkansas’ number two ranked class is 6’7 point guard Anthony Black. Black gives Arkansas the size that they have had on the ball during Coach Musselman’s tenure that has led them to back to back Elite 8 runs.

57.Derrian Ford (#11CG) Magnolia,AR (Magnolia)
Derrian Ford might be the most underrated player in the class. Ford is a strong guard who won multiple player of the year awards in Arkansas during his career and gives Arkansas a good defensive piece off the bench.

85.Barry Dunning (#21SF) Mobile,AL (McGill Toolen)
The Alabama Gatorade Player of the Year heads to Fayetteville as a multi-positional piece for Eric Musselman.

88.Joseph Pinion (#23SF) Morrilton,AR (Morrilton)
The sharpshooter may not get a ton of playing time in his first year in Fayetteville but with Arkansas’ lack of elite perimeter shooting threats you never know.
