Arkansas and coach Eric Musselman have made the cut for ESPN top-20 prospect Kendall Brown.
Brown, 6-7, 205 pounds, named Arkansas, Ohio State, Baylor, Minnesota, Illinois, Arizona, Kansas, Marquette, Maryland, and Virginia in his top 10.
Musselman and assistant coach Clay Moser, a Minnesota native, did a virtual tour with Brown on May 1.

He played this past season at Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas after playing his sophomore season at East Ridge High School in Woodbury, Minn. He averaged 17 points per game.
Brown’s father played basketball at Southwest Missouri State and professionally in Europe and South America. He also played for the Harlem Globetrotters.
