— Little Rock Hall power forward Bobby Portis (6-9, 1/2, 220) has signed his national letter of intent to play basketball at Arkansas.

Portis, who is rated the No. 11 prospect in the nation by ESPN, orally committed to the Razorbacks in August before his junior year. Last season, he averaged 16.7 points, 10.4 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game helping the Warriors a state championship win in Arkansas' largest classification.

He joins center Moses Kingsley (6-10, 220) of Huntington Prep, (W.V.) as signees for coach Mike Anderson.
