Graduate-transfer guard Isaiah Moss, who committed to Arkansas on May 15, has had a change of heart and re-opened his recruitment.

Moss (6-5, 208 pounds) announced his decision on Twitter. He visited Kansas after his official visit to Fayetteville in May.

With Moss' departure, Arkansas now has 10 scholarship players from last season and four newcomers, including two graduate transfers - forward Jeantal Cylla from North Carolina-Wilmington and guard Jimmy Whitt from SMU.

Connor Vanover, a 7-3 center who transferred from California, plans to apply for a waiver to play immediately while guard JD Notae, who transferred from Jacksonville, is expected to sit out next season.

The Razorbacks are hosting former Virginia Tech forward Kerry Blackshear for an official visit today. He's expected to leave on Saturday.

Blackshear (6-10, 250 pounds) averaged 14.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for the Hokies in 2018-19. He helped Virginia Tech reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament last season.

He reportedly visited Florida on Thursday.
