ESPN 100 Moses Kingsley inks with Arkansas

Arkansas announced the signing of ESPN 100 center Moses Kingsley (New Albany, Miss./Huntington Prep) on Thursday.

Kingsley is currently ranked No. 49 overall on ESPN.com.

"Size is something we needed to address in the 2013 class," head coach Mike Anderson said. "With the signing of Moses, we feel that we are on the right track. He is listed as one of the better forwards in the country and he really fits our program. He is athletic, a gifted shot blocker, relentless on the boards and can run the floor. One thing that people say is that his defense is ahead of his offense, but I've seen his offensive game develop over the last two years and feel he can be a low post presence for us. He is a high character kid and more importantly he is a winner. I am delighted to have him as part of the Razorback family."

Anderson is also expecting to add ESPN 100 PF Bobby Portis (Little Rock, Ark./Hall) during the early signing period.
