Jordon Granger Hearing From High-Majors
Right now, Arkansas stands as his only high-major offer. Coach Mike Anderson, former Mizzou head coach, recruited Granger back when he was with the program and once he became a Razorback he kept recruiting Granger.
But Arkansas isn't the only high-major interested. He's picked up interest from Auburn, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
Nevada has also recently shown interest and his scholarship count could grow drastically over the next few months.
Right now, he's gotten offers from Arkansas, Detroit, Illinois State, Missouri State, Murray State, Ohio, Saint Louis, Tennessee-Martin, Tulane and Tulsa.
Granger is considered one of the better mid-range shooters in his class. The 6-8 combo-forward has the ability to play in the post and on the wing.
He has great handle for his size, the ability to shoot and score in the post. Arkansas has been on him hard for a long time and his former teammate BJ Young is also a Razorback. Despite his obvious connections with the Arkansas program, he said he has no favorites.
"Not really," he said. "Because there is always somebody new calling."
But at 6-8, 195, most programs want to see him add more weight and that's exactly what's he's working on right now. "I don't have any scheduled visits just yet," he said. "Right now, I'm trying to get my body together."
Granger is set to have a big impact in his senior year of High School. He told me he plans on making his final decision this November but right now, his recruitment is open.
Calaen Robinson commits to Arizona State
Calaen Robinson had emerged on the scene this summer, showcasing his ability as a true point guard. After having a successful showing during the first live period, Robinson started receiving interest from Clemson, Colorado, UNLV, Virginia, Washington State.
But instead of playing things out, he already knew where he was headed. Early Wednesday afternoon, Robinson verbally committed to Arizona State.
He'll likely join Jahii Carson in the backcourt next season at ASU, which will be one of the more dynamic backcourts in the Pac-12.
