Basketball team hosting 4-star target this weekend

Jalen Shelley, a 4-star forward from Link Academy in Branson, Mo., is visiting Fayetteville this weekend.

The 6’9, 185-pounder took an unofficial visit last year for the Missouri State football game and is taking an official this time.

Shelley spent last year at Prestonwood Christian in Texas, helping them win the TAPPS (private school) 6A state championship.

Now he is in Branson, where Jordan Walsh spent his final year of school after transferring in from the DFW metroplex while committed to the Razorbacks.

He has taken official visits to Louisville already and also has ones planned for Colorado and Ohio State.

If he were to decide to commit, he would be the first of the 2024 high school class for Eric Musselman & Co, although they are in the mix for a handful of other targets.
