Three schools are still in the running for four-star prospect Antwan Space, but one SEC school has created some separation from the other two.
Space, a 6-foot-8 forward from DeSoto (Texas) High School, absolutely loved his official visit to Arkansas. In fact, he is in the process of scheduling another visit to Arkansas for the weekend of September 25, prior to his scheduled official visits to Maryland and Florida State.
"I loved my visit to Arkansas," said Space. "Pretty much as soon as I landed I got along with the coaches and all the players that I met. Before I visited I never had Arkansas high on my list, but as soon as I visited they became one of my favorites."

Maryland, who has visited Space at his school, is scheduled to host Space on an official visit October 2.
"The ACC is an impressive conference, and Maryland has sent a couple big guys to the NBA," he said. "I want to become a better player and get to the next level as well."
Florida State is also scheduled to host Space on an official visit October 15.
Both Maryland and Florida State, however, are playing catch up to Arkansas.
"I was on my visit with B.J. (B.J. Young), and we really hit it off," he said. "Now that he is going to Arkansas, it is going to be hard for the other schools. I really like Arkansas."
Space is the No. 88 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
