Kerry Blackshear’s recruitment has been an odd one in many ways, but the strangest turn may have been when he took an official visit to Arkansas. The Razorbacks are in full rebuilding mode under first-year head coach Eric Musselman, and although the former Nevada coach is known for piecing together rosters with grad transfers, no one is picking Arkansas to be a national title contender this season, even if they add Blackshear. Yet, one national writer believes the Razorbacks are still in the running.
In a recruiting roundup this morning, Rivals’ Eric Bossi said he believes Blackshear is down to Arkansas, Kentucky, or Tennessee, with a decision coming “soon.”
After developing into a potential NBA level big man at Virginia Tech, Blackshear has been the subject of pretty strong recruiting battle that has had twists and turns and lots of indecisiveness. My belief is that he should be making his decision soon and I would venture to guess that he picks either Arkansas, Kentucky or Tennessee but until he makes a decision we’ll all continue to watch and wait.
More watching. More waiting. More feeling like a total creep stalking people on social media.
