If you aren't recruiting the players you need, that's a major question mark.
I actually know mike anderson, I've seen him recruit first hand. He will be fine. He has 2 decades of ties to this area that he did not have at mizzou, he has ties to the memphis area that he can use as well. REcruiting is not my biggest concern. Look at the recruits we have now. BJ Young, top 20 player in the country, loves mike anderson, but wanted to be a hog. KY Madeen, top 30 player, really liked mike anderson but not enough to not go to arknasas. Abram, same thing. Archie Goodwin, a 2012 recruit and who is already the best player in the state, and probably the best player to come out the state since at least joe johnson, was being recruited by mike as a sophmore, and didn't want to go to mizzou, he can pick his school. He has already been on record stating how he loves the up tempo style and would love to play for coach anderson, and this is a 5 star, top 15-10 type recruit (shooting guard). It's easier to recruit to arkansas than it is to mizzou or the connections he has is what I am getitng it. In case you are wondering how I know hi'm i played AAU ball growing up and he was always around. He reruited and signed my first cousin as well "(Mike jones). If Mike/ Nolan wanted a player in the memphis/little rock area, they got him.
