FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas is once again going after one of the Bluff City's best basketball players.

Murrell, ranked 82nd nationally by 24/7, is also considering Memphis, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Tennessee and others.

“I am extremely proud of him, and all the attention he getting is well-deserved with his recent accomplishments,” Whitehaven head coach Faragi Phillips said. “But I tell you what, he has worked to earn those — every bit of it.

“He is the kind of kid that can change the program in more ways than one.
