It the most wonderful/worst time of the year, depending on how you look at it. The dead period is over and schools can start hosting recruits for official visits.

Everyone make their Friday night reservations at the Catfish Hole, because it's time to make some magic happen.

Here's a rundown of who will be here.

OLB Rayshad Jackson- A 3-star prospect out of Miami, Florida would be a major get for Arkansas. The Razorbacks as of right now only have 5 scholarship Linebackers for the 2015 season. Arkansas was his only offer until Randy Shannon Left for Florida, now he holds an offer from the Gators as well. He arrived Thursday and will leave Saturday. He will visit Florida next weekend so we'll have to wait and see how that goes.

OL Toby Weathersby- A composite 4-star lineman out of Houston would solidify this as one of the top offensive linemen classes in the country. He was once committed to Texas but has since eliminated the Longhorns. Arkansas has made up some major ground with Weathersby and now hold 33% of the crystal ball picks on 247Sports. He visits LSU next weekend and Ole Miss the following one. Should he choose to come to Arkansas he would be Arkansas' highest rated prospect in the very talented 2015 class. Never count out Sam Pittman here.

CB Nate Dalton- A 3-star player out of Houston will visit Arkansas as his last scheduled official visit this weekend. He visited Kentucky and Oklahoma in December. He would be another big get to help solidify the depth in the secondary. If anyone was on commit watch this weekend it would be Dalton.

Richard Davenport tweeted out that the fourth visitor will likely not visit this weekend. That's just how it goes this time of the year.

Bret Bielema has 7-ish more scholarships to play with and Arkansas is scheduled to have their biggest recruiting weekend of the year next weekend as we race towards signing day.
