Speaking of Post Players

…a really, really good one just entered the transfer portal.

Dusan Mahorcic 6-10 235 lbs Illinois St Redbirds

2020-21 SEASON STATS
PTS REB AST FG%
9.9 7.2 1.0 59.1

Don’t be deceived by his stats, many consider him to be one of the most overall talented bigs to enter the portal thus far.

I expect the Arkansas coaching staff will be in contact with him very soon.

Isn’t this the same school Ridgeway, our recently committed
defensive tackle, attended?

Yup, same school

He is a big fellow and if he has plus factors in his basketball skills, maybe a familiar face will help us get him aboard. They play serious basketball in his home country.

I understand Arkansas recruited Mahorcic in 2019 when he was in Juco. Not clear if it was Anderson or Musselman that recruited him. Maybe RD or DD can clarify.

Recruited by Hogs, West Virginia and USC during summer of 2019 (on Muss’ watch) … struggles learning English led to poor grades and a stint in Juco before signing with Illinois State … apparently knows new Razorback John Ridgeway (retweeted JR’s highlights video)

Favorite former Hog of European descent - Davor Rimac!

I have done a lot of reading on the country of Serbia. It is amazing how many great athletes this small war torn country of just 7 million has produced. Great athletes in basketball, volleyball and current world #1 and perhaps the greatest men’s tennis player ever and former women’s #1.

I am sure all have heard about current NBA star Nikola Jokic and former star Vlade Divac. This guy has similar physical stature at that age. I am pleased to hear that Muss is the one who recruited him before and about the Ridgeway connection. Could this guy be the last piece of the puzzle of this recruiting class?

If he plays anything like Jokic, I would be thrilled to have him. I’m really looking forward to seeing how Muss finishes off this class. Like I said before, he has so many intriguing options.
