Arkansas lands the nations top hoops prospect

Arkansas has landed a verbal commitment from the nation's No. 1 basketball prospect for the Class of 2004.
Center Al Jefferson of Prentiss (Miss.) High committed to coach Stan Heath and staff following an unofficial visit to The Hill earlier this week.
Jefferson is not currently taking calls from reporters, but family members confirm his commitment to Arkansas.
RivalsHoops.com currently rates the 6-foot-10, 280-pound Jefferson as the nation's No. 1 Center and the No. 2 prospect overall. However, when the next RivalsHoops Top 100 is released, Jefferson is expected to move to the nation's No. 1 player overall.
Jefferson selected the Hogs over LSU, Alabama, Florida, and Florida State among others.
Last season Jefferson averaged 37 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks for the 30-7 Prentiss Bulldogs – the class AAA state champions.
Jefferson’s grades still remain a question mark as he has yet to reveal his GPA or college entrance exam information. He is also a possible lottery pick if he decides to forgo his college eligibility, but he has said he has no intentions of doing so several times.
