Babb makes pick

The Arkansas Razorbacks dipped into the state of Texas and snagged a three-star wing.

The dominoes keep falling, and the latest one is Nick Babb. Babb, who is a three-star small forward, decided to end his recruitment on Saturday by selecting Arkansas.

Babb, the younger brother of Iowa State's Chris Babb, had attracted solid high-major attention all spring and summer long. He had a big time showing at the Jayhawk Invitational that saw more schools come in, but at the end of the day it was Arkansas that landed him.

Babb announced his decision via his twitter account.

At 6-foot-4 with solid athleticism and good strength, Babb is a versatile player who can excel on both offense and defense. Right now Babb is at his best going to the rim, but he has is a capable jump shooter.

This is the third commitment for the Razorbacks in the 2014 class. Babb joins in-state recruits Trey Thompson and Anton Beard in what is shaping up to be a very solid class for Mike Anderson and his staff.

Babb also considered schools such as SMU, Creighton, Tulsa, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Wichita State.
