Arkansas Recruiting Update: Josh Williams Signs With The Razorbacks

Well how about that?

The Razorbacks are in desperate need of players at linebacker and found Josh Williams, an intriguing prospect who can play immediately this fall.

The story going around is that a few major schools were showing interest in him out of high school, but his test scores were low causing schools to back off of him. His only offer at the time was to Marshall. However, Williams ended up qualifying in the months after Signing Day, which allows him to transfer from juco to a school like Arkansas after just one year instead of two. He was able to get his latest transcript to Arkansas after being recruited by Sam Pittman, and it appears Arkansas accepted it on Friday. As a result, he has four years to play three seasons.

In his one year at Dodge City, he had 82 tackles, three tackles for loss, 0.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries. He went to Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale and knows Alex Collins as well as signee Randy Ramsey.

Because of his unique situation, there's not much on him as far as star ratings or other offers. Here's a quick post from Richard Davenport on Williams from a couple of weeks ago.

He'll count back to the 2014 class. As you may recall, the Hogs didn't land a couple of players they were expecting to get on Signing Day, and as a result had a couple of spots left open. They're using one on Williams and can hold the other over if they choose.
