Arkansas Razorbacks sophomore forward Trevon Brazile has announced that he will return to the program for his junior season. The forward played just nine games this season before suffering a torn ACL and missing the rest of the 2022-23 college basketball season. His name was beginning to climb up the 2023 NBA Draft boards before the injury ended his second college basketball season. With the Razorbacks set to likely lose several prospects to the NBA or the transfer portal, the return to Brazile will be a huge boost to Head Coach Eric Musselman and the program next season.

In the nine games he played in his second season with the Arkansas Razorbacks before his injury, Trevon Brazile averaged 11.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 blocks, and 1.0 steals per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 48.1 percent and a three-point percentage of 37.9 percent. Brazile emerged as a key rotational player for the Razorbacks early in the season and had a few highlight-reel dunks and blocks. He was getting the right kind of attention from NBA scouts and might have gotten drafted high enough for him to leave this year before the injury. Instead, he will return to the program, show he has recovered from his injury, and focus on the 2024 NBA Draft instead.
