It looks like the Arkansas Razorbacks, the college basketball team known for its aggressive and fast-paced play style on the court, have landed themselves another guard for their backcourt rotation.
Last night, after a weekend visit to Fayetteville, 6-foot-4 junior combo guard Jaylen Barford from Motlow State Community College, has committed to play for the Razorbacks under coach Mike Anderson.
Although Barford may not have the best star ratings, (Rivals rates him as a three-star player) that doesn’t mean he wasn’t hurting for offers to play for other college teams.
Before deciding on Arkansas, according to 247Sports, Barford had to sift through offers from Alabama, Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Iowa State, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Texas, Wichita State, Louisville and others.
According to ESPN, Barford was supposed to make an official visit to Louisville this weekend, though, after officially deciding to play for Arkansas, it seems that trip won’t be happening after all.
