Calling New Hogs: Juan Day Commits To Arkansas!

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Class of 2014 running back from North Little Rock commits to Razorbacks.

The Razorbacks picked up their third commitment of the class of 2014 on Monday with the pledge of North Little Rock running back Juan Day. Per multiple recruiting outlets, Day committed after being offered the scholarship earlier in the day.

Day (6-foot-2, 210, 4.5) more than held his own in North Little Rock's backfield with top 2013 recruit Altee Tenpenny, rushing for over 900 yards in his junior season. Bret Bielema was apparently very excited. He tweeted:

If anything is clear from this, it's that Brad Bolding is running a great program at North Little Rock. Between Day, Martrell Spaight, and Tenpenny, Bolding is developing SEC players at a rate central Arkansas hasn't seen much of in recent years. I covered a few of Bolding's Mayflower teams when he was the coach there, and was always impressed with his ability to build a program. This is welcome news to Razorback fans who have needed someone at one of the public schools in Pulaski County who can develop the athletes that all too frequently fall through the cracks in the region.

Day will surely be on Tenpenny's case to get him to stay home as well. You can watch Day's highlights here.

In other Razorback recruiting news, tight end Dee Skinner decommitted from Arkansas over the weekend.
