LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) --THV 11's Mark Edwards and Jim Harris with Sporting Life Arkansas discussArkansas women's basketball coach Tom Collen's recruiting woes in theNatural State.
Collen has struggled to recruit the state of Arkansas. The latest class of 2013 features three players from the central Arkansas area all headed out of state for college.
The three players in question, Tyler Scaife, Jessica Jackson, and Roshunda Johnson, all rank in the top 50 and only one is considering playing for the hogs. Scaife is the ranked ninth(9) and the number one point guard in the class. Scaife was not heavily recruited by the university and therefore, signed a letter of intent to play for Vivian Stringer and Rutgers.
Johnson is ranked 49th in this year's class. She will play for Oklahoma St. Jackson, verbally committed to Collen early but has since revisited that commitment and won't make her decision official until a later date.
