Well, so much for that.
Ron Holland won’t be going to college, as the top-ranked 2023 recruit (via 247 Sports) has opted to sign with the NBA G-League Ignite.
However, Holland backed off that commitment recently and went back on the market. Kentucky was among the schools to reach out, but this was widely viewed as a battle between the G-League and Arkansas Razorbacks.
Coming into the week, Arkansas was seen as the favorite for Holland, so it came as a surprise to see him pick the G-League.
Holland joins Matas Buzelis, ranked No. 7 overall by 247 Sports, as 2023 recruits to join the G-League for next season.
