    The Arkansas Razorbacks had a big week on the recruiting trail, hosting three class of 2022 prospects for official visits, including four-star guard Derrian Ford.

    “It was a great experience overall,” Ford told ZAGSBLOG Sunday.

    The 6-foot-3, 190-pound combo guard from Magnolia (AR), was joined on his visit by four-star center Kel’el Ware and four-star forward Barry Dunning.

    “The practice was my favorite part,” Ford said. “Just having me there and how fast they move.”

    Ranked by 247Sports.com as the No. 9 combo guard and No. 48 overall prospect in the class of 2022, Ford is looking to set up more visits in the future.

    “I’m looking to take more visits,” he said. “I don’t have any dates set up yet though.”

    Ford is set to participate in the Pangos All-American Camp in Las Vegas, NV this weekend (June 6-8).

    He was recently named 2021 Arkansas Gatorade Player of the Year.

    Ford also holds offers from school such as Florida, LSU, Baylor, Kansas, Alabama, Texas A&M, Auburn, TCU and Oklahoma State, among others.

    β€œ[I’m looking at] the daily life, how it feels,” Ford said. β€œCould this be where I could get closer to my dream?”
