The article presents information related to college basketball. After putting together a top 10 class for 2006, John Thompson received an oral commitment from Austin Freeman, one of the best shooting guards. Perhaps the best recruit with the least fanfare this signing period was Matt Bouldin, the 45th-ranked player in the country. Elite junior college players are becoming a rare breed in college basketball recruiting, but Arkansas has a future star in Sonny Weems.
