Arkansas portal exits raise hopes for USC under Eric Musselman

Arkansas basketball players are entering the transfer portal. This raises the possibility that Eric Musselman could bring a number of players with him from Fayetteville to Los Angeles. Former McDonald’s All-American and Arkansas freshman center Baye Fall is one such potential target. Fall has entered the transfer portal. He announced his decision via X on Thursday.

Fall has not done much in his career to this point, but he has three years of eligibility left. The former Razorback big man averaged 0.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and had 6 blocks in his limited action this past season.

The freshman from Dakar, Senegal, was a four-star prospect coming out of high school. He chose Arkansas over Auburn, Rutgers, Missouri and Oregon State, Baylor, and several other power five conference programs.

Fall is the seventh Razorback to enter the portal, joining Joseph Pinion, Denijay Harris, Keyon Menifield, Layden Blocker, Khalif Battle, and Davonte “Devo” Davis, with Eric Musselman moving on to USC this week.

Fall has tons of upside. The Trojans could use size up front, too. Look out for USC to possibly be a major player in the recruitment of Fall and some of the other Arkansas players who have entered the portal.
