Arkansas will be in Baytown, Texas on Tuesday to see one of the more dynamic players in the junior college ranks and in West Virginia on Wednesday to see a high school star.
Lee College small forward Tyrone Outlaw (6-6, 215), who averaged 21.8 points and 5 rebounds this past season, is considering the Razorbacks among several other programs.
He is scheduled to have Kansas and Oklahoma State in for visits today and then Arkansas, Missouri, Oregon and West Virginia.
“Arkansas has done a great job recruiting him,” Lee College assistant Marcus King said Monday. “(Razorback assistant coach) T.J. (Cleveland) has really connected with him.
“He is very interested in Arkansas because of their up-tempo style and because how much he really likes the coaches.”
The Razorback staff will be at Delbarton, W.V., Mingo Central, on Wednesday to see 6-7, 190-pound small forward Dikembe Dixson.
Arkansas will also host Memphis transfer Nick King (6-7, 225) on May 1-3 for an official visit.
Outlaw – who spent his freshman season at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro - has already taken official visits to LSU last fall and to Virginia Tech last weekend.
“I think he is going to take one or two more visits, but there just is not enough time for him to get in all five,” King said. “He will visits all these coaches the next two days and then make a decision from there.”
Outlaw, who shined as a prep at Roxboro, N.C. Person County, averaged 5.4 points and 2.1 rebounds while playing in 30 games and starting five as a freshman at UNC-Greensboro.
“He has been through this process once before so it is not just about basketball this time with him,” King said. “This is a kid who is looking to be at a place he can trust the coaches and he also wants to major in psychology.”
Outlaw shot 50.2 percent (228-of-454) from the field this season, 75.2 percent from the free throw line (109-of-145) and also 43.5 percent from 3-point range (90-of-207).
“Ty is a great athlete and a great shooter as you can see by the fact that he made 90 3-pointers this season,” King said. “He is a great athlete and would really fit in with how Arkansas loves to get up and down.”
