Four to sign in early period

At least four basketball prospects are expected to sign with Arkansas this week. The early signing period starts this Wednesday and runs through next Wednesday. Early Signing Period

Courtney Fortson

Patterson, NC

5-10 No. 9 PG FSU, UK, Tenn.

Arkansas picked up Fortson's commitment on Oct. 7, following an official visit that sealed the deal .

Undersized but a dynamic player, Fortson is an excellent competitor who defends and rebounds. Offensively, the lefty is fast with the ball and can finish at the rim. He shoots it well off the dribble, but does have room to improve the consistency of his outside jumper. -Rivals.com Analyst Jerry Meyer

I was impressed with the basketball tradition at Arkansas and the passion of the fans. They have good coaches there, and I also liked the campus. -Courtney Fortson

Andre Clark N. Little Rock, Ark. 6-9, NR PF Zona, 'Cuse, OU

Clark decommitted from Oklahoma and selected the Razorbacks on Oct. 15following a visit.

He shoots the ball so well for a big man. He is now a true 6-10 kid who can create some match-up problems for the other team. He is quicker than most power forwards who will have to guard him, and if he gets the other team's center guarding him it is over for sure. He will blow past the defender or pull up and hit a jumper in front of him. -AAU Coach Billy Ingram

Me and my mom really enjoyed it, really enjoyed the coaching staff and just really enjoyed the campus and everything. The people were really a lot of fun besides from them losing the football game. -Andre Clark

Terrance Joyner Mendenall, Miss. 6-2 NR PG N. Mexico, Ore. St., USC

The California native committed to Arkansas on June, 20, following a visit to the school.

He was virtually unknown when he got here. We learned very quickly that he was talented but he has more of a scoring point guard at first. After some work and being more comfortable with the team, he's now a good point guard. He's starting to understand what it takes. That's been the biggest adjustment he's had to make. -Prep School Coach Victor Evans

The coaching staff there is great and the chance to play right away in the SEC is hard to turn down. -Terrance Joyner

Brandon Moore New Orleans 6-9 No. 34 PF Miss., Marq., Tulane

Moore lived in Little Rock during the Hurricane Katrina disaster and committed to the UA on Oct. 15.

Brandon is such an athletic forward. His potential level is very high just like Andre. Both these kids can one day play in the NBA if they continue to work hard and improve. -AAU Coach Billy Ingram

They are going run the floor and get up and down. Brandon is perfect for that. He's going to give them an added bonus on defense because he blocks shots so well and rebounds and can get some tip-ins. He's a 6-9 athlete that can do so much. -High School Coach John Lumas

Others to Watch: Claremore (Okla.) Verdigris PG Rotnei Clarke & Coffeyville (Kan.) CC PF Daniel Payne.
