Arkansas most likely played itself out of a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, but there was some good news for the Razorbacks at the end of the day.
JUCO point guard Jabril Durham of Seminole (Okla.) Seminole C.C. committed to the Hogs late Thursday evening, turning down other offers from Oklahoma State, Auburn and Marquette.
The 6-1, 180-pound guard had been on Arkansas' radar for the last several weeks and was seen by head coach Mike Anderson last week.
Durham, a sophomore in the 2013-14 season, graduated from DeSoto (Texas) High School in 2012. He averaged 21.2 points and 5.5 rebounds for a team that won 17 games this past season. The guard also averaged 6.7 assists per game and hit 50.1 percent from the field including 44.1 percent of his three-point attempts.
