The Arkansas Razorbacks got their first commitment for the 2018 recruiting class in Isaiah Joe.
Joe, a 6-foot-2 170-pound shooting guard, committed to the Razorbacks on Tuesday, according to HawgSports.com’s Danny West. Joe’s high school coach spoke glowingly of the new Arkansas commit.
“As a basketball player — I’m just glad he’s on my team,” Fort Smith (Ark.) Northside coach Eric Burnett told West. “He can light you up. He can light you up from the three, creating his own shot, and he’s a smart basketball player. You don’t see him turn the ball over a lot.”
The Razorbacks are beginning to build their 2018 class, but they have also put together a solid group for 2017. They have three commits in this year’s class, including 4-star center Daniel Gafford.
