Arkansas Recruiting: Adding Depth

Razorback Recruiting

The Arkansas 2020 class is shaping up to be a good one. It will be hard to beat the 2019 class numbers wise but this years class can address some positions the Razorbacks need.

The 2020 class as of right now includes 4⭐️ OL Tykiest Crawford, 4⭐️ QB Chandler Morris, 3⭐️ DE Blayne Toll, 3⭐️ Athlete Kelvontay Dixon, 3⭐️ WR Savion Williams, 3⭐️ RB John Gentry, 3⭐️ CB Jamie Vance, 3⭐️ DE Jashuad Stewart, 3⭐️ WR Mason Mangum, and 3⭐️ TE’s Allen Horace and Brandon Frazier. 

The main priority for this 2020 class is Line Backers and Offensive linemen. Running back and defensive backs are also a need. Here are some potential additions that would help fill the depth chart. 

Arkansas coaches have made linebacker a must need position. They have none committed in the class as of now. Martavius French and Bryson Eason are both major targets from WestHaven Memphis. Getting the 4 star linebacker duo would be huge. Cantrell Wallace plays for Bryant and has great size at 6’6. Wallace is the 4th best player in Arkansas. Tre Allison is a Syracuse linebacker that entered his name in the transfer portal. He was once committed to SMU under Chad Morris then committed to Syracuse after Chad came to Arkansas. He’ll be one to keep an eye on as well. Signing 3 to 4 linebackers would be ideal. 

Along with linebacker, offensive line is the other big priority for Arkansas. They have one O-lineman committed right now in 4 star Tykiest Crawford. 4 star Garret Hayes is the next biggest target out of Texas. It looks like he’ll choose between Arkansas and Texas A&M. Omari Thomas is a talented two way prospect out of Tennessee. He could play either offensive or defensive line. 

Arkansas will look to add a couple more running backs to go a long with 3 star North Shore John Gentry. Some main backs that Arkansas has targeted is Edison Oklahoma 3 star Sevion Morrison and Owassa Oklahoma 3 star Isiah Jacobs. Also, Briarcrest Tennessee APB Jabari Small is also in the mix of things.

Arkansas has one defensive back committed so far in the 2020 class. They’ll look to add to that with JUCO CB Brian George. George will be a tough one to pull but would be a great addition if they can land the talented 4 star JUCO product. The Hogs are also recruiting 4 star Safety Jerrin Thompson out of Lufkin Texas. 

If Arkansas can pull in these recruits the 2020 class will help make a complete and deep roster for Arkansas.
