FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas should have one more addition to its basketball roster this season.

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas should have one more addition to its basketball roster this season.

Former Oklahoma State guard Fred Gulley is “eligible” to practice with the team after enrolling in courses at Arkansas earlier this month, according to coach Mike Anderson. The Fayetteville native won’t play until next spring because of NCAA transfer rules, but Anderson indicated he’s joining the program Wednesday.

“Fred Gulley is talking about it,” said Anderson, who spoke publicly about the transfer. “He’s enrolled in school. Obviously he wants to try to be a part of what we’re doing.”

When asked if Gulley was joining the program as a walk-on or scholarship player, Anderson said: “Right now he’s in school, paying his own way.”

Gulley expressed his intentions to play for the Razorbacks earlier this week, when he made a brief appearance in Bud Walton Arena and told the Associated Press he was in the process of receiving clearance to join the program.

Two days later the Fayetteville native was sitting on Arkansas’ bench with injured players Marvell Waithe and Marshawn Powell before the 56-53 win against Auburn in Bud Walton Arena.

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 4.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in eight games this season before leaving the Cowboys in December.

Anderson said he recruited Gulley when he was at Missouri and has known the guard for awhile.

“He and my daughter actually played when they were like 8, 9 years old,” Anderson said. “They played on a little team here in the city.”
