Derrick Graham Signs With Arkansas

Outside Linebacker. Wauchula, Florida

When Randy Shannon left Arkansas for Florida Derrick Graham was the lone commit at the time that there was a concern with whether or not he would follow him to Gainesville. Graham stayed committed the entire and when Vernon Hargreaves was hired he shut down any pursuit from Shannon and Florida.

Graham had an impressive offer list that included Florida, Iowa State, Nebraska and Mississippi State among others. Graham only visited Arkansas and that was way back in September. His recruiters at Arkansas were Robb Smith and Vernon Hargreaves. Hargreaves took over when Shannon jumped ship.

Graham adds depth to a much needed position. Without this class Arkansas would only have 5 scholarship linebackers for the 2015 season. For that reason alone he could get in on some early playing time for the Razorbacks.
