In the spring recruiting period, UALR may have uncovered a gem in 6-1 guard Curtis Jackson out of Philadelphia. The Trojans also brought in more inside beef with 6-8 forward Wayne Burton from New Orleans via Western Texas College and guard Lionel Foster from Houston Alief Hastings High School.
UALR will have to wait a year to get transfer Solomon Bozeman from Magnolia eligible. He's the son of former Little Rock Parkview and Henderson State sharp-shooter Eric Bozeman and spent a season at South Florida.
