There's little doubt the best pure college shooter in Arkansas is Razorback senior-to-be Rotnei Clarke.
There also seems to be little argument about who the best prep shooter is – Pulaski Academy senior-to-be Dusty Hannahs (6-3, 200).
Since he buried 7 of 9 3-pointers in a recent EYBL game in Virginia, the scholarship offers have been rolling in.
"Texas Tech has offered, SMU, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Arkansas State have offered," Hannahs said. "Ole Miss has sent stuff and I already had an offer from Louisiana Tech where the former Ole Miss assistant (Michael White) is now coaching. LSU has also asked me to visit and UTEP has shown interest. …I'd like for Arkansas to recruit me because I think they are going to be great now with Coach Mike Anderson up there. It's been a fun time."
Hannahs, who averaged 20 points and 5 rebounds for Pulaski Academy, will actually multi-task while in Dallas this weekend with his Arkansas Wings team for the next EYBL tournament.
"I am going to go visit both Texas Tech and SMU while we are down that way for the Dallas tournament," Hannahs said. "I really like Texas Tech and what they have and Coach (Billy) Gillespie."
Gillespie took advantage the last night before being named the Texas Tech head coach by coming to Little Rock to watch the Wings practice.
"Coach Billy Gillespie came by the last night before he was named to come by here and see practice," Arkansas Wings coach Ron Crawford said. "He got named the head coach at Texas Tech and then the next day called and offered Dusty."
Like Clarke, Hannahs used last year to develop his game into more than being just a shooter.
"The change in his body these last 12 months where he can now go to the rack and then hitting 7 out of 9 3-pointers in that one game in Hampton has the coaches all over him," Crawford said.
Hannahs said he has indeed worked hard to become an all-around player.
"I am jumping a lot higher, being able to windmill dunks now," Hannahs said. "I measured my vertical and it was 33 (inches). Off of one step, it was 36. I have gotten way more athletic off the dribble and can make plays now and just not be a shooter. I try to drive more now than shooting."
Hannahs plans right now to see what schools come with offers during the summer before making a decision.
"I would like to have my decision made before our high school season starts," Hannahs said. "November 10th is the signing day, but if the right school comes along I could make that decision at that time."
