As told to Ryan Mayer: CBS Sports
The reason I chose to go to Arkansas is because I played for an AAU team in the area, Arkansas Wings Elite, alongside Bobby Portis who would go on to become my teammate with the Razorbacks. I just felt like I was familiar with the program because the coach for my AAU team was on the staff at Arkansas. It felt like a family to me because I knew a lot of the guys there already and that’s why I decided to go there over some of the other big schools that recruited me.
The best memories I have from my four years at Arkansas are from going to the NCAA Tournament. Especially this past year, with a bunch of new guys on the team, we started the season not really playing that well. But, we were able to start figuring things out later in the year and made the tournament and then won our first round game against Seton Hall before coming up just short against the eventual National Champion, North Carolina.
