FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - It appears that a Nettleton alum will not play college hoops this coming season.

Arkansas freshman guard Elauna Eaton announced Friday that she had surgery to repair a torn ACL. Eaton tweeted that she suffered the injury “about three weeks ago.”

Eaton had a decorated high school career before signing with the Razorbacks. She earned 6A All-State honors in 2018 for Jonesboro, and earned 5A All-State accolades in 2019 & 2020 for the Lady Raiders. The 5-star prospect was ranked #41 nationally in the ESPN/HoopGurlz Recruiting Rankings. Elauna was key as Nettleton won their first state championship in program history.
