The Hogs have started two-a-days, practiced in the rain, and the last of this year's freshman class made it to campus.

From UA:

FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas football team continued its second week of preseason camp with practice on Tuesday afternoon.  Defensive coordinator Chris Ash spoke with the media after practice and discussed the team practicing in rainy conditions on the outdoor practice field.

"When you constantly practice on a dry surface, constantly practice with a dry ball, that’s obviously easy," Coach Ash said. "You go out there in the rain, you put yourself in a little adversity. It does a couple of things. You want to see how the players handle it and how they respond to the weather conditions like they had to today. You want to see how the offense, the center, the quarterback exchange works, the handoffs work,  the quarterback being able to throw the ball, receivers catching the ball. Defensively, you want to see if you can keep your footing in these situations. It’s good to practice in it."

Coach Ash spoke about senior linebacker Jarrett Lake.

"The guy that stands out to me is Jarrett Lake," Coach Ash said. "He’s probably been the most consistent, the biggest playmaker that we’ve had through the course of camp so far. The D-line guys have been steady. Chris Smith and Trey Flowers have been good players. But Jarrett Lake has been a guy that’s really stood out."

He also noted the development of the safeties on the team.

"We’re getting better every single day," Coach Ash said. "They’ve got a good mental understanding of what we’re trying to do and the concepts that we have. They’re doing a great job of communicating adjustments and being in the right spot. I just want them to make more plays."

From Monday:

FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team began its second week of preseason camp with two practices Monday. Wide receivers coach Michael Smith and running backs coach Joel Thomas met with the media following practice and discussed the transition to two-a-days.

"We had two practices today," Coach Smith said. "They were long and hard practices. The kids battled through it. This morning it was a little slow, but they came out this second practice and practiced pretty well."

Coach Thomas also talked about the need for the team to mature quickly.

"We have about twenty days to become a mature group," Coach Thomas said. "You aren't going to get sympathy letters from your opponents on Saturdays that you may be young or inexperienced. That is not an excuse, we don't have that in this room."
