FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - University of Arkansas walk-on basketball player Manuale Watkins is a walk-on no longer.

Razorbacks basketball coach Mike Anderson announced Thursday that Watkins has been placed on scholarship for the coming season.

Watkins will be a junior who spent the past two seasons as a walk-on. He played in all 36 games last year as a sophomore and had the game-winning basket with 6.4 seconds to play in a 71-70 win over Ole Miss.

Watkins father is Razorbacks assistant coach Melvin Watkins.
