What Coach Anderson is Saying
“Keyshawn is one of the best players in Oklahoma and in the country and he certainly has a bright future here in Razorback land,” said Anderson. “He is a very instinctive player that can really score the basketball, pass and defend. His athletic ability and basketball IQ sets him apart. He is going up against some of the better teams in the country playing at IMG Academy and he comes to Arkansas as a proven winner. We look forward to having Keyshawn join the #Fastest40 family next year.”
