The regular season is over, so Arkansas is set to go full-throttle into recruiting season.

The Razorbacks hosted several visitors over the course of the season, but have never had a group of this many official visits at the same time yet this year.

All of Arkansas' recruiting reporters have the same list, so here's who's coming with a little bit of info to let you know who they are.

The recruiting reporters are also teasing the possibility of a super secret visitor this weekend who could be committed to another school as of right now. If we find out anything, we'll be sure to report it here.

Uncommitted

RB Devin White - The weekend headliner (so far) is Springhill, Louisiana running back Devin White. A composite 4-star prospect from just over Arkansas' south border, White is the third running back to officially visit Fayetteville for this class. White also has official visits planned for Alabama and Ole Miss before signing day. He was in attendance for Arkansas' win in Baton Rouge last month.

Michael Smith, Arkansas' WR coach whose recruiting territory is Louisiana, made an in-person visit to White earlier this week.

CB JaMarcus King - Considered the nation's top juco cornerback, Arkansas just offered King a scholarship earlier this week and immediately scheduled an official visit. A 4-star composite recruit, King committed to Auburn in June but decommitted in late September. In addition to Auburn, King also holds offers from Tennessee, Florida, TCU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Missouri and several others. He took an official visit to Baylor last month.

DE Keir Thomas - Arkansas has pulled a few prospects out of South Florida late in the recruiting cycle over the last few years, and Thomas could be added to the list. A high 3-star prospect out of Miami, Thomas was committed to Florida State for most of this year, but decommitted last month. He's already taken an official visit to Tennessee and Auburn. He also reports offers from Alabama, Oklahoma and several others.

His status as a visitor this weekend depends on his high school team's playoff results. Depending on what happens, he may end up visiting next week.

Committed Elsewhere

DE Allen Cater - Cater committed to Indiana in June, but Arkansas has apparently been on him for a while. He visited Fayetteville unofficially for the Mississippi State game, which is when the Hogs offered him. He's a 3-star prospect and is scheduled to officially visit the Hoosiers next week.

Already Committed

DE McTelvin Agim - As of now, Agim is the highest-rated prospect in Arkansas' class and clearly the top in-state recruit this year. Agim is rated as high as a 5-star #9 overall player in the country according to ESPN. You have to think Arkansas' coaches are hoping Agim's presence will help have an impact on the recruits they're trying to get commitments from.

QB Cole Kelley - Arkansas' quarterback in the 2016 class is heading back to Fayetteville for his official visit this weekend. He's been committed to the Razorbacks since early this year. As a quarterback, you'd think he'd be another great representative to have with the uncommitted prospects on campus.
