Rawleigh Williams III Signs With Arkansas

Running Back. Dallas, Texas.

It's no question that the running back is the staple of the Arkansas offense. After only signing one last season, it was a position of need in this recruiting class. Although, Rawleigh Williams III is the only running back recruit Arkansas is bringing in this class.

Williams is a recruit from Dallas' Bishop Lynch High School. He was committed to Ole Miss at one point but Arkansas flipped him back in June. Talent is not a question for Williams. He ran for almost 3,000 yards and 40 touchdowns during the past season. That's hard to do on a video game. He had offers from Ole Miss, Duke, Oklahoma State, and North Texas. He only took one official visit, and that was to Arkansas. Joel Thomas was his primary recruiter.

Keeping Jonathan Williams might as well be another recruit for the 2015 class. Without him Arkansas would be bare at that position. Rawleigh Williams is the prototypical running back for Bret Bielema's offense. Expect to hear his name called a lot in the very near future.
