Arkansas continued its recent recruiting momentum on Wednesday as four-star Class of 2018 forward Reggie Perry pledged to the Razorbacks with an announcement on Twitter.
The 6-foot-8 Perry is regarded as the No. 73 overall prospect in the country in the Rivals Class of 2018 national rankings. He becomes the second Arkansas commitment in the Class of 2018 after in-state, three-star guard Isaiah Joe.
Although head coach Mike Anderson has struggled for success that has led for some to put him on the hot seat, he’s recruiting at a high level right now.
Arkansas has three in-state commitments in the Class of 2017, headlined by a top-40 big man in Daniel Gafford. That class is considered top 10 in the country right now and the Razorbacks now have two commitments in the Class of 2018, including Perry.
Anderson has missed the NCAA tournament in four of five years at Arkansas, but if this year’s team showed progress with the kind of recruiting that he has coming in, would it be enough to keep his job? The Razorbacks are hoping to be successful enough to not answer that question, but Arkansas does have a decent future if all of these commitments ends up on campus.
