    Last I checked until last year, Arkansas hadn't made a sweet 16 in 25 years.....

    I mean, if you are going to play the conference coat tail game, at least try and do it as well as K State.

    "College basketball is so unhealthy right now. I miss strong mid-majors like Wichita State who could be good and challenge for a couple years if they had the right talent. Now Arkansas looks at WSU as a farm team."

    The delusion of Arkansas fans is strong. They probably think they are still relevant in football too.
    Too much moonshine flowin on that board. Put the swill down Hog fan. I love how prior to his commitment it was like He is great we really want him he has so much potential. Then he commits to WSU and its Well he wasn't that good anyway we're looking for grad transfers.

    Several are saying, "well, if he develops and is successful at WSU, maybe he'll transfer to UA". I really hope that's not how things are going to be with college basketball recruiting moving forward, but I fear it is.

    If he develops and is successful, why would he move to a lower-level school?

    Shox have a second-year Fr (Monzy) who was going to challenge Wade for PT. Shox recruited a PF that was going to compete with Wade for PT. I'm guessing that IB was straight up with Wade and told him that IB was recruiting PF's and Monzy was going to challenge him for minutes. IMHO, that's what put Trey in the portal.

    Arkansas ended up with Wade, and he will be a valuable role player for them. Articles out of Fayetteville have flat out said that the Razorbacks have signed a valuable role player.

    Any comparisons between Trey ending up at UA and Ricks ending up at WSU are like apples/watermelons comparisons. There's just no way to compare the two.

    Ricks doesn't project as a 5th-year role player. Wade is a great 1-year addition for a team that needs some front-court depth.
    At very minimum Wade is going to bring a level of work ethic and mentality that any team could use.

    Arkansas had 2 scholarships left (now just one) but is focusing on the transfer portal instead of high school recruiting. Probably wanted a senior so that way it opens up a spot for the 2022 class which looks very good in Arkansas.
    I agree that is probably where he pivoted after Ricks chose WSU over Arkansas. Good backup plan for them.

    Agreed, but Ricks is an Arkansas native that was heavily recruited by the Razorbacks. Looks like through someone’s choice we ended up with Ricks and they ended up with Wade.
    That was the angle I was going for. Good catch

    So the old we didn't want him anyway trick huh? Let me guess you all moved on and that's why Ricks chose WSU?

    So did we just trade Wade for Ricks. Always liked Trey but I'm thinking we got the upside on the trade.
    But do they have a couple baseball players they want to swap out?

    I was actually surprised that Arkansas had a scholarship. I thought it was thrown around that Ricks chose us over Arkansas because they recruited others and were out of scholarships. Sounds like Ricks just flat out thought we were a better pick for him.

    Just wait ‘till we get the ‘Player To Be Named Later’ (PTBNL)…
