Former Arkansas forward Trevon Brazile invited to 2024 NBA Draft Combine |  Whole Hog Sports

Next season, a former basketball player from Arkansas is expected to rejoin the Razorbacks and suit up for John Calipari.

A tweet from the Razorbacks’ official X (formerly Twitter) account announced that former Arkansas forward Trevon Brazile will play for John Calipari in his formal comeback to the team the following season. The choice was made following reports that Calipari and Brazile met on Monday night to talk about a possible comeback.

Brazile made it public last week that he was pulling out of the 2024 NBA Draft, while he was still open to finding a new home. In an effort to maintain his alternatives while going through the draft process, Brazile declared on May 1 that he had entered the transfer portal.

Brazile made the decision to use the transfer portal for the second time in his collegiate career. After spending just one year at Missouri, the 6-10, 220-pound forward first transferred to Arkansas prior to the 2022–2023 season.

Before sustaining an ACL tear in his right knee on December 6, 2023, Brazile was averaging 11.8 points and 6.0 rebounds in nine games as a sophomore in his rookie campaign with the Razorbacks.

Only 19 games into the season, the Springfield, Missouri, native made his eagerly anticipated comeback this past year as a redshirt sophomore before missing the second half of the Ole Miss game on January 24 due to “knee soreness.” Prior to his injury, he was averaging 6.5 rebounds and 8.9 points per game.

Brazile, who averaged 7.7 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20 minutes per game, made a comeback for the final seven games of the 2023–24 campaign. Brazile averaged 8.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks on 49/35/70 shooting splits during the course of the season.

Brazile’s explosive leaping ability and respectable shooting range before the injury made him a potential lottery choice before the season, but he never displayed that same explosiveness after returning to the field. Brazile now seems fully recovered and prepared to play for the Razorbacks in the upcoming campaign.
