Warren is a closer

Points and rebounds being important, but what did you think of their talent level?

Very impressed with Bryson Warren’ skill level, his ability to score from all three levels and his ability to close out a game. Stud.

Annor Boateng is a young William Mills in terns of body type. Didn’t have his best game today, but oozes potential. Just a freshman. So athletic and graceful.

Central very balanced.

The Governor was on hand to see his grandson Abel Hutchinson, a junior for Bentonville.

Writing story now

It’s a huge oversight that he’s not ranked in the top 50 in his 2023 recruiting class. It must be that the scouting services just haven’t seen him. I saw him in person in a game at NLR last year when he was a freshman and he was a beast then. We really, really need him to be a Razorback!
