Arkansas lands New Mexico grad transfer

New Mexico forward grad transfer Vance Jackson will be finishing his career at Arkansas under the tutelage of a familiar face in Coach Eric Musselman.

Jackson, 6-9, 225 pounds, picked Arkansas over interest from Louisville, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, Washington State and others.
