HAHAHA. If that is the case, we are in a sad, sad, sad state of affairs. Worse than we could imagine.

Its absolutely crucial that Kingsley returns next season. Trey Thompson is the only post player returning with experience. Then you have Dustin Thomas, who didn't play last season and averaged 2 points a game at Colorado. Then you have two newcomers who are good but questionable. I've seen enough games of Marshawn Powell with Michael Sanchez and Hunter Mickelson to know you can't win without post play.

I agree, does that mean we quit looking?

Stan Heath was a good recruiter, he just underachieved with the players he got.

No but we need to understand that it's not as easy as posting it on snap-chat! Whether real or imaginary we need to accept that the perception is that it's tough recruiting basketball players to Arkansas (tough nearly everywhere but one would think Arkansas would be easier than it is).

Always good to get a quality walk on:

If he was 6'3" with his abilities he would have every coach at his door. I believe he has the potential to earn a scholarship after 4 or 5 years at the U of A. I hope nothing but the best for him and hope he improves every year enough to earn one eventually. 28.5 points a game is a big number in high school..... Like you said it is just a walk on, but that is about as much as you could ever ask for out of a walk on.
