  • Now his parents have released statement that these are just rumours and if they made that decision they would call CMA before announcing on social media. However, they never say explicitly Reggie is still committed. I hope he is. Arkansas staff offered before he was even on anyone else's radar. He's a great impact player and he will be a difference maker here or anywhere else he goes.

  • His parents sound like fine people, but you can bet they will be shown the money. Calipari and others will start showing up with offers that will be tough to turn down.  The hogs really struggle to land these highly touted players. I hope Perry will be the exception.

  • Get ready people. I'd bet he will never be a Hog. He wants NBA after one year, and that is not Mike's focus. After reading the comment from his mom, if expect a decommitment by the end of the summer.

    Please stop! 

    We are a great program there are those so called fans that never wanted CMA successful that will stop at nothing to make sure the program does not get momentum. That train has left the station. Glad to have you Mr. Perry one and done. Two and done,  four years it does not matter. We are happy to have you!!!

    Right after saying that any de-commitment would start with a meeting with Anderson, they stated that that had not been done.

  • If your goal is the league, you're looking at Mike having only one of his Arkansas kids in it. That doesn't mean you can't get there from here. It just means you likely won't be a top 5-10 pick because you aren't going to get the minutes or showcase time due to wonky subbing patterns and style of play.

    We're a 4-star destination for kids that can turn into mid-first round guys. It's not a slam on the program. That's simply Mike's approach to running his team. We should never be surprised that a kid starts looking elsewhere when he blows up. They want to be shown the big money and an aged Joe Johnson is the only Hog commanding that type of cash. Many don't even know who he is since he's had one of the quietest borderline HOF careers in NBA history. That's a tough sell to today's instant gratification generation.

    If Monk came to Arkansas, he would have averaged comparable scoring #'s...double the assists...more opportunities to handle the ball and IMO a higher draft position. He made a mistake going to play with D. Fox IYAM.

    NBA drafts on Ath Ability and skill. MA's subbing patterns would have no impact on a kids draft stock. All the European players drafted have similar or lower MPG average than that of MA's top players. But the NBA still drafts them high.

    In addition, kids from NC State and Washington got picked the top 10. Further proof it doesn't matter were you go to school.

    Zach Collins from Gonzaga. Started zero games and only averaged 17.2 minutes per game and he was a top 10 pick last week after only one year.

    Not true at all. The reason we have only had one NBA guy is because that's the only one that was without a shadow of a doubt talented enough to go there. Really has nothing to do with the style of play. Give Mike NBA quality players out of HS and they would still go to the league.

    yes you would.  Every game is on TV somewhere.  If you are a top 5-10 talent out of hs you can be a top 5-10 pick out of Arkansas.  Kids with talent will get the minutes needed for exposure.  Portis got the minutes.  Last years teams had plenty of kids with over 20 mins a game.  Those that produce play

    if you are truly an NBA player, a great college player, you ARE going to get the minutes in Anderson's program. Those "wonky" substitution patterns are the result of having mix-and-match parts of guys who aren't great players, future NBA players. You're not going to keep a Corliss Williamson or a Joe Johnson on the bench for half the game. Nolan didn't, Mike wouldn't.
    If anybody suffered in the "playing time" argument, it was the Kentucky team two years ago. Great players getting 18 minutes a game, because they simply had a whole lot of great players and only 200 total minutes to share.

    OK, here's my question. If Perry does decommit why did Arkansas keep MA here so long? Wasn't that the biggest argument from guys like Forrest Joe? If we fire MA, the '17 and '18 recruits are gone? So if MA's crown jewel recruit, the guy we need to keep MA to land leaves why still employ him as the HC?

    That tells me more about MA's recruiting skills. Or lack there of.

    No argument with this statement but he didn't exactly inherit an attractive program. But before these Perry rumors everyone was on board that MA's recruiting was on the rise.

    How is it MA's fault if he de-commits?  I don't understand how it could be on him...?!  Short of locking Perry in a room, or giving him a duffel bag full of money, how can ANY coach make a recruit KEEP his commitment?  Here's the answer for you....THEY CAN'T.  I get sick of the blame game.  Sometimes a recruit changes his mind, and it's no fault of anyone but that recruit....just a thought.  I know my post doesn't fit the "blame MA for everything" narrative, so I apologize in advance....

  • Any kid that thinks they can't get to the league in one year through Arkansas is ill informed. Bobby Portis was never expected to be a two and done. His development was as superior as any I've seen coming out of one and dones or two and dones from the few basketball factories that have the reputation of getting kids to the league as quick as possible. Come on Reggie Perry, CMA will get you everything you need to maximize your stock.

    Malik Monk told the Charlotte Observer that he would have played anywhere Calipari coached because of Cal's record for producing lottery picks.. He said  he knew a lot of Hog fans were angry at him but that he had to do what was best for his carerer and for his mother and brother.

    This is not directed at you because I know you are just loosely quoting Malik, but the quoted statement is a total joke.  Kids like Anthony Davis, Derrick Rose, John Wall, D'Aaron Fox produce Cal's record.  He has zero record for producing lottery picks.  He harbors them for a year and uses their talents to make himself look like a great coach.  We're starting to get more evidence that going to Kentucky might actually hurt some of these guys, if people are willing to actually consider all of the facts and stop listening to only what guys like Cal are saying to them.

    That just shows Monk's lack of intellect.

    Monk just got drafted behind a guy who played on a losing team in a program not known for lottery picks.

    Pretty much what Roy Willams' response implied. Roy in essence said that he had better things to do than go to the NBA draft every year and mug for the camera with his draftees.

    This. Coach Cal doesn't take borderline prospects and make them pros. He signs kids that are already NBA prospects and everyone acts like he some kind of coaching marvel.  The Harrison Twins, Alex Proythess, Daniel Orton Marcus Lee were all kids that played at Kentucky that hurt or killed their NBA stock.
