6′-8″ forward Ethan Henderson, a top 40 prospect in the 2018 class, made an early commitment to Arkansas on Monday.
In a rare, albeit not unprecedented feat, Arkansas now has the five members of the Arkansas Hawks 16U travelling team verbally committed, as Henderson is joined in the 2018 class by big man Reggie Perry, and guards Desi Sills and Isaiah Joe. 2019 point guard Justice Hill is also a member of that team who is committed.
Among the aforementioned five players, Henderson is the most highly-touted nationally and a prospect with tremendous upside.
With two more years left of high school, Henderson has the potential to continue to rise in the player rankings nationally, and eventually be the centerpiece of a fine recruiting class.
With four pledges in the fold for 2018, Arkansas has the (way, way too) early best class in the 2018 cycle.
