The best Arkansas athlete

Who do you think it was?

The New York Times asked the question of baseball star Torii Hunter. His answer:

Basil Shabazz. He was unbelievable. He played with the Cardinals organization. He broke records in track, football, basketball. He ended up quitting baseball and going back to football because he missed it so much, but he could have made it to the majors. He slipped a disk in his neck in college and he never played again.
