Arkansas signs guard from Texas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Rickey Scott has signed on to play basketball at Arkansas.

Scott, a 6-foot-3 guard from Irving, Texas, averaged 18.3 points and 6.7 rebounds a game as a junior for MacArthur High School. Razorbacks coach John Pelphrey said Scott is a good student and will be a unique player at the guard spot because of his size and athleticism.

Scott has also been a standout football player as a high school sophomore.
