Day 1 Vegas recruiting tidbits
Arkansas coach Mike Anderson reacts to a call on Saturday Jan. 6, 2016 during the game against Tennessee in Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.
LAS VEGAS — All four Arkansas coaches are in Las Vegas for the Adidas Summer Championships, Bigfoot Las Vegas Classic and FAB 48 tournaments.
Arkansas coach Mike Anderson and associate head coach Melvin Watkins watched Team Portis Wings and 2017 commitment Daniel Gafford in a late Wednesday game in the Las Vegas Classic. The Wings hammered IBA Munich of Germany 74-22.
Watkins watched 2018 guard Courtney Ramey of Webster Groves, Mo. in one of the 6:20 games in the Adidas Summer Championships. Ramey scored 18 points in Team Ramey 65-48 victory over Exum Elite of Utah. His father, Terrell coached former Hog B.J. Young and is very familiar with the Arkansas staff.
The Hogs recently offered Ramey. Father and son visited Fayetteville last summer while attending Anderson's camp.
As noted in the story posted, assistant coach Scotty Thurman watched 2018 guard Gabe Kalscheur Wednesday night. It looks like Kalscheur, who's from Minnesota, will make a trip to Fayetteville this fall.
Arkansas power forward target Garrison Brooks of Auburn, (Ala.) and Team Carroll will play Team Magic Elite and Arkansas small forward commitment Darious Hall at 2 p.m central time today. The Hogs are recruiting Brooks hard.
