A Quick Look



Pos. Rank

Quick Analysis

B.J. Young


PG (#6)

Young is a great scorer who gets to the basket at will and always attacks the defense. He is great off the dribble and can get by nearly any defender since he is quick and explosive. He is also very athletic and has a good mid-range game which makes him an elite player since he can score even if he can’t get to the bucket.

Ky Madden


SG (#10)

Madden is a big-time combo guard with a lot of potential who loves to get to the basket. He has great size and athleticism for a shooting guard and creates his own shot like few others can in this class. He is also a good passer and has the ability to distribute if he finds an open man when he beats his defender with his quick first step.

Hunter Mickelson



Mickelson reminds me of Blue Devil Ryan Kelly since he is a big man with good length, a nice shooting stroke and a skinny frame. The two are also comparable since Mickelson will be living in the weight room at Arkansas to put on some weight.

Aaron Ross



Ross is a versatile big man who can shoot, drive to the basket and score in the post. He has a handful of other skills as well including being able to handle the ball, pass to cutting teammates and create space to get his shot off.

Devonta Abron



Abron is a smaller power forward although he has long arms and good interior scoring moves. He also has a variety of moves to use while in the post and is an effort guy who likes to crash the boards.


The Razorbacks have two greats guards coming in between point guard B.J. Young (#18) and Ky Madden (#32) and another player closing to making the top 50 in power forward Hunter Mickelson. Young and Madden are two prolific scorers who should help out an Arkansas team who averages just 70.5 points per game (138th in the NCAA) and in the coming years give the Razorbacks the chance to compete in a week SEC west division. Arkansas also has small forward Aaron Ross and power forward Devonte Abron coming in who should be good role players in their years with the Hogs too.
