When New Mexico combo forward Vance Jackson decided to transfer to the University of Arkansas, part of his reasoning was what a former player told him about Coach Eric Musselman.
Jackson, 6-9, 225 pounds, chose the Hogs on Wednesday after being in the transfer portal since only Monday.
"Players love his style, and I've been watching film and I love his style as well," Jackson said.
Former Nevada guard Jazz Johnson, who transferred from Portland State to play for Musselman in 2017, told Jackson he had a very good experience playing under Musselman.
"Just basically said Muss is a terrific coach and even though we were rivals, he praised me when they did scouting against us when I was playing at New Mexico," Jackson said.
