Good question, but following her on Twitter, I think it would be a waste of time.

I'm sure they've reached out, but I completely agree with LBBBF. At this point, the ship has sailed.

Fayetteville G Sasha Goforth is up to 18 offers now. Only a sophomore. The ship might have sailed on Williams, but we still have a lot of in-state talent coming in the next few years.

So, this is weird. I hadn't heard about Morris supposedly committing to the Hogs, but I guess the rumors are out there. She knocked them down here (in June). Has anyone heard about this or where things stand with her? She'd be a great get for us, imo.

contrary to Williams, I have always considered Morris as being highly likely of coming here.  I still feel that way.  She did mention the the university was GREAT, didn't she?

Yeah, usually when there are rumors of a commit, that means that there is likely to be a commit at some point. Can't blame the young woman for taking her time and wanting to be sure.

She has other offers, including Tulsa (who now has Tari, of course), and Power 5's from Ole Miss, Mizzou, Washington (! probably from Neighbors), and Kansas State, and maybe more. Also has a Southern Miss offer (which is where Pauline Love came from).

Interesting - Arkansas Banshee player Rokia Doumbia (lives in TN, but has transferred to IMG) has reportedly reclassified from 2019 to 2018. Offers (as noted in the tweet below) from Ark, TN, Ole Miss, OK, OK St, Vandy, WKU, Houston, TCU, UALR, Kansas, and Tulsa.

"Raoul" (twitter guy who gets good recruit information on WBB) indicates that Doumbia and Morris are taking official visits to Arkansas this weekend. Makes sense - I hope we are bringing in several kids this weekend. The weather is supposed to be outstanding and the campus atmosphere should be hyped with a big home football game.

It is my understanding that official practices for women's BB begin October One.  At least maybe the visiting girls can see an nonofficial ones, meet the players and get a feel on how the current players are bonding with all the new coaches.

On the other hand It is hard to understand why softball rosters are not updated with the freshmen by now, since they are obviously enrolled by now, and since their first fall game is less than thirty days away now (Oct. 4). I wonder if Coach D's pregnancy is affecting her involvement in the program right now?

Over a month has gone by since Yo'Myris Morris and Rokia Doumbia visited campus. They are out there taking other visits, which is completely normal, and I am hopeful that we will still land one or both of them. We were also trying to land Arieal Scott, who had decommitted from Duke, but she chose to stay at the home-town University of Illinois. Not sure if she made an official or not.

However, is there ANYBODY else out there that we've heard about as a 2018? Upthread, it was mentioned that Fayetteville's Jasmine Franklin has an offer. Does anyone know if there are going to be any more 2018 visitors this fall, or are we waiting till spring and trying to find a JUCO? (I guess that could depend on what Morris decides).

Kansas State just dismissed Eternati Willock, a 6'4" post who was a unanimous Big 12 all-freshman player, from their team. You never know, but it sounds like she had several off-court issues (at least one of the legal variety). I envy the size, I'm not sure you want to bring those issues into your own gym.

I think the future of recruiting has enormous upside, but I am just wondering about 2018 at this point. Dungee and Gaulden will both be eligible in next season, and I think they fit Neighbors' offense perfectly, but those two by themselves are not going to fix the hole on the roster in the post. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything?

I have not heard anything and Richard Davenport has never commented on Morris's visit.  We all know that we need at least one new highly rated post player - hopefully, one is on the horizon.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Morris isn't doing post-visit interviews. I can't find any coverage of her trip to Florida, either, fwiw. She's headed to MS State this weekend, and apparently people seem to think that the Bulldogs are possibly the biggest competition for the Hogs (but when there are no stories, it's hard to tell!).

Unlike Christyn Williams who is constantly on Twitter, Morris is silent.

Some pretty great news re: future recruiting in RD's piece today on BB recruiting (most of the article is about MBB recruits, but this appears at the end):

Arkansas women to host pair

Arkansas women's basketball Coach Mike Neighbors and his staff will host two of the top junior prospects in the nation Saturday. Point guard Kennedy Tucker of North Little Rock and wing Jayla Hemingway of Germantown (Tenn.) Houston are expected to make their way to Fayetteville.

Prospectsnation.com rates Tucker the No. 24 prospect and Hemingway No. 12 nationally in the 2019 class.

Sophomore wing Sasha Goforth of Fayetteville has visited the Hogs during all football home games this season and also is expected to visit. She's the No. 12 prospect in the nation for her class
.

Still wish we knew more about 2018 options, but this is exciting news about two excellent 2019s, and if you're not excited about the Sasha Goforth part, I can't help you.  :)

Oh - here's the link to the full article:  http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2017/oct/20/arkansas-talent-impresses-in-texas-2017/

Well you do have two pretty good players that become eligible next year in Gaulden and Dungee.  I think they will add at least one more transfer to that group, hopefully one who will be eligible day one.
