The Razorbacks will host Texas Tech on Jan. 30 at Bud Walton Arena as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
Hannahs spent two years playing for the Red Raiders, averaging 7.7 points, hitting 41 3-pointers and shooting a school-record 92.3 percent (60-of-65) from the free throw line as a sophomore, before sitting out last season at Arkansas.
Texas Tech is coached by former Kentucky head coach Tubby Smith, whose team was 13-19 last season and 3-15 in conference play.

The Big 12 has won the event 7-3 and 6-4 in the past two seasons when the games were held in either November or December.
Arkansas, coming off a 27-9 season, will also visit Dayton and Wake Forest with those being the only three games officially announced by the Razorbacks.
There was also a report in the Cleveland newspaper The Plain Dealer that Arkansas will play in the 2015 NIT Season Tip-Off Tournament in New York.
The Razorbacks - coming off their best season in 20 years – will reportedly join an eight-team field that will also include Villanova, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Akron and Wisconsin-Green Bay and two other teams to be announced.
Each team will be guaranteed three games overall and at least one game in New York with the semifinals and finals being played at the Barclays Center in New York on Nov. 25 and Nov. 27, respectively.
It’s expected that Villanova, Arkansas, Georgia Tech and Stanford will be the four teams pre-set for match ups in the semifinals.
Arkansas has not officially confirmed its appearance in the preseason event.
Texas Tech leads the all-time series 39-33 with most of those games happening while both were members of the Southwest Conference.
Arkansas won the last four games of the series while averaging 98 points per contest.
