No. 1 JUCO Prospect Ricardo Ratliffe Is Visiting Arkansas This Weekend

Blake StansberyCorrespondent IMarch 4, 2010

This just in, according to Richard Davenport (The Recruiting Guy ), Ricardo Ratliffe, the No. 1 JUCO prospect in the country will be visiting Arkansas this weekend.

Two weeks ago, you may remember I did a short story on Ratliffe, accompanied with videos (CLICK HERE ).

Arkansas fans that follow recruiting know that Ratliffe is the missing piece to the Razorbacks 2010 recruiting class. Arkansas already has two big guards and a solid SF/PF signed.

John Pelphrey has worked tirelessly on building a relationship with Ratliffe, and he just so happens to be a former teammate of Marshawn Powells.

Ratliffe is the inside help to go along with Powell and he is as big-time of a scorer as they come. In about a year and a half, he broke his JUCO's career scoring record.

For Razorback fans that are having a hard time paying attention to the basketball team, Ratliffe is a program changer. If the Razorbacks can sign Ratliffe, they will be a much improved team next season.

A team I would go so far as to say will win the SEC West and make the NCAA Tournament; that's right.

Get out your Hog gear, and high-tail-it over to Bud Walton Arena this Saturday for the Hogs' regular season finale against Ole Miss.

Pack the house and show Ratliffe the love.

Tonight and over the coming days, keep a look out for more stories on Ratliffe and the Arkansas 2010 recruiting class.
