Montrell McDonald makes his Decision caught up with Cowley College head coach Steve Eck, who informed us that talented forward Montrell McDonald has signed with Arkansas.

Small foward Montrell McDonald faxed his letter intent to Arkansas this afternoon, ending weeks of speculation as to what his decision would be after verbally committing to Texas Tech and then visiting other schools.

What was it that swayed McDonald to choose Arkansas over Texas Tech?

"I don't really know," Coach Eck stated. "I know he really liked Texas Tech, he really liked the coaches there, but in the end he decided to go with Arkansas.

"I guess he just decided that Arkansas was the best place for him."

This bad news comes to Pat Knight and his staff on the heels of learning that guard Tyree Graham has not yet made the necessary scores to qualify and will need to do so this summer if he is to make it to Lubbock in the fall.
