Former Houston G Tramon Mark commits to Arkansas
Guard Tramon Mark, who averaged 10.1 points last season as a junior at UH, has committed to Arkansas with up to three seasons of eligibility still remaining. Mark had previously narrowed his list of destinations to four schools including Texas A&M, Kansas State, and Florida. Mark is 6-5 and a native of Dickinson, Texas.
At Houston, Mark started all 37 of the Cougars’ games this last season as the team put together a 33-4 record. He drained 39 3-pointers for UH during 2022-2023’s campaign, and made 78.4% of his free throws. Mark also played in every game during his freshman season, an integral part of a Houston team that reached the Final Four in Indianapolis in 2021. That season, Tramon Mark scored 15 points in the Cougars’ Round of 64 win over Cleveland State and averaged 6.6 points per game for the season. In 2021-2022, Mark was issued a medical redshirt after playing in just seven games.
Arkansas has become one of the most active teams in the transfer portal under head coach Eric Musselman, and this offseason has been no different. Houston has seen plenty of its own success in the portal as well. This offseason alone, UH has already added Temple’s Damian Dunn and Baylor’s LJ Cryer to what ought to be another talented roster in 2023-2024.
