Durham commits to Hogs
Arkansas coach Mike Anderson talks with player Mardracus Wade during the second half of the game between Arkansas and LSU on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014 in Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.
PG Jabril Durham of Seminole State in Oklahoma has committed to Arkansas.
Durham, 6-1, 180 averaged 21.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.7 assists whole shooting 50.1 percent from the field, 44.1 percent from beyond the three-point line this season.
He said he picked the Hogs because Arkansas needs him, not wants him. He also said style of play was a big factor in his decision.
He picked the Hogs over scholarship offers from Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Western Kentucky, Marquette and several others. He plans to sign with Arkansas on April 16, the first day of the spring signing period.
