It is the last home game of the year, and Arkansas is taking one last opportunity to show recruits what gameday is like in Fayetteville.

This is the last visit list before offseason recruiting starts. Arkansas usually holds more Official Visitors during the offseason.

Here is a quick rundown on who will be on The Hill this weekend.

Official Visitors:

OL Jalen Merrick- Like in weeks past Arkansas is bringing in at least one big time offensive linemen. Merrick is a 4* out of Florida who holds offers from Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia, Wisconsin, Miami, Arkansas and many others. Florida looks to have the lead here but with all of the turmoil in Gainesville that could be up in the air.

DL Hjalte Froholt- Probably the biggest steal in the country and finally coming back to The Hill this week. The 4* is originally from Denmark, but has played his high school football in Ohio and Florida. He has major offers from Ohio State, Michigan State and others.

Unofficial Visitors:

We haven't been able to track down a list of unofficial visitors for the Ole Miss game. We'd be surprised if a lot of the in-state commitments for the 2015 class don't come to the game, as many have attended most of the home games this season.

Richard Davenport said Arkansas is expecting to host 50-60 prospects on unofficial visits this weekend.

Regardless, most of the recruiting focus this week will be on Merrick. Let's hope the Catfish Hole can work its magic on him this weekend.
