Arkansas recruit opts not to sign early

Posted on: November 9, 2010 1:17 pm
 
Rashad 'Ky' Madden will not sign with Arkansas this week despite being committed to the Razorbacks, according to a report by Richard Davenport in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Madden, a 6-foot-5 wing and consensus top 50 prospect in the Class of 2011, told Davenport he remains committed to the Hogs, but that he's concerned with the number of guards projected to be a part of the Arkansas program next season, and that he won't sign with any school until the late period. It's an interesting development due to the fact that Madden's commitment was deemed strange when it happened in late September, mostly because he was, according to multiple sources, telling people up until minutes before his press conference that he planned to sign with Ole Miss over other finalists Arkansas and Baylor.

Arkansas still has three prospects expected to sign this week.

They are B.J. Young, Hunter Mickelson, Aaron Ross and DeVonta Abron.

Young, Mickelson and Ross are all considered to be top 100 national prospects.

This is totally fishy.  Three of the other recruits in the 2011 class are forwards (two power, one small) and there is one other guard in young who plays the point.  Madden is the only shooting guard in the class.  How could other guards be "projected to be part of the Arkansas line-up" at his position?  How, at his ranking, would he not start over the existing guards on the roster?  As the only shooting guard in the class, he signs and they won't recruit any others, and given his talent level he would probably start.  This kid needs to man up and pick another school.

He probably also has concerns about John Pelfrey still being there if this season doesn't go so well.

Don't count on anything until he is signed...and even then.  Sounds like a big question mark to me.

Yeh….he was dating Renee Gork and is PO’d about the way the backs treated his lady.  No respect.  No signature.
