FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. (AP) - Arkansas basketball coach Mike Anderson has been busy on the road and at his new home during the past month.

That work appears to have paid off for the new coach, who says he expects to keep the Razorbacks’ highly ranked recruiting class and all the current players.

Anderson left Missouri to replace the fired John Pelphrey at Arkansas last month. He spent much of his first month on the job traveling to visit the school’s five signees. Three of the recruits are from Arkansas, one from Missouri and one from Texas.

All five were recruited and signed by Pelphrey, but Anderson says they’re all on board to be Razorbacks.

Arkansas’ returning players include leading scorer Rotnei Clarke.
