BREAKING: FAU transfer Johnell Davis visited Arkansas this past weekend and is expected to sign with John Calipari and the Razorbacks, source told @TheFieldOf68.

He has declared for the NBA Draft and his preference is to go pro, but Arkansas offered him a lucrative NIL deal…

In 2022-23, Davis starred for an FAU team that made the Final Four as a No. 8 seed. Last season, Davis averaged a career-high 18.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for the Owls.

With FAU head coach Dusty May leaving for Michigan, players have left town, including center Vladislav Goldin to join his coach with the Wolverines. Now Davis, who was the top player available on the transfer portal per On3, is a Razorback.

Arkansas has a great class of 2024 thus far, with the school ranking third overall, per 247Sports. Calipari got three top-30 commits to join the team in 4-stars Karter Knox, Billy Richmond and Boogie Fland. Arkansas also added some size in the transfer portal via Tennessee forward Jonas Aidoo and Kentucky center Zvonimir Ivisic.

Now Davis is aboard for an Arkansas team that’s looking great on paper going into next season.
