Walker Powell story

Walker Powell could pitch against Arkansas at some point this weekend. He’s the Southern Miss leader in starts with 15, that’s one more than Nick Sandlin. Powell is a sophomore from Fayetteville. He is first cousin with Taylor Powell, the Missouri quarterback. Powell is 6-7, 210 and throws hard. He came back from Tommy John surgery two years ago. He’s 7-2 with a 3.53 ERA. I know the family pretty well. Good folks. His dad is Matt Powell. Matt’s brother is Mark Powell, the basketball team doc for the Hogs. Mark keeps my knees working and one of our top surgeons in NW Arkansas.

Here is more on Walker from Paul Boyd: http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2018 … r-differe/

did we not recruit him?

I believe there was interest before his senior year, but he was battling an arm injury and eventually had Tommy John surgery.

Oh I see…

Grew up with Matt…he is a good dude!
