Good news, at last, good news!

Arkansas' 2015 recruiting class continued its early momentum with the commitment of 4* defensive tackle Hjalte Froholdt.

The highly regarded prospect committed to the Razorbacks over reported offers from Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and many others. He took an unofficial visit to Fayetteville the weekend of the South Carolina game in October, and if he committed after witnessing that debacle, he must have really been sold on the future of the program.

According to Richard Davenport, Froholdt is a an exchange student from Denmark who played in the United States as a sophomore and is planning to return for his senior season next year.

Here are his highlights from ESPN:

And here is a self-made highlight tape of Froholdt from his time as a 14-year-old in Denmark, which, along with his written description, I find to be absolutely adorable.

Froholdt is the 5th commitment of Arkansas' Class of 2015. This class is off to a great start for Arkansas. Hopefully the staff can close the 2014 class strong as well.
