Columbia Rock Bridge senior guard Jimmy Whitt, widely considered to be the top high school basketball player in the state of Missouri, has announced a verbal commitment to the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Whitt held a news conference in Columbia last Tuesday to announce his commitment to play for former Missouri coach Mike Anderson, days after narrowing his final choices to Arkansas, Missouri, Marquette, Illinois, and SMU. Whitt had recently taken an unofficial visit to the Arkansas campus in Fayetteville, indicating that visit helped to solidify his decision to play for the Razorbacks.

Four major recruiting websites (Rivals, Scout, 247Sports, and ESPN) rank Whitt between the #50 and #63 player nationwide in the Class of 2015. Whitt and his family are said to be very close with Coach Anderson and Arkansas assistant coach Melvin Watkins, from their time in Columbia with Mizzou.

As a junior in 2013-2014, Whitt led the Kewpies with a 22.5 point per game average, helping send Hickman into the Class 5 state championship game, where they lost to CBC at Mizzou Arena. Missouri head coach Kim Anderson was believed to have "made progress" in Whitt's recruitment since taking over the head coaching job in Columbia this April, but, in the end, Whitt stated that "his heart is with Arkansas".
