Hjalte Froholdt Signs With Arkansas

Defensive Tackle. Denmark/Ohio/Florida

There wasn't a stranger commit in this class for Arkansas. It is strange because at the time it was seemingly out of nowhere. Why would a player from Denmark come to Fayetteville? Nonetheless, this is possibly the biggest steal in the country of the 2015 class.

Froholdt is originally from Denmark but played his High School football in Ohio and at the high school football machine that is IMG Academy in Florida. Remarkably, he committed to Arkansas extremely early in the process. He had offers from Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, Michigan and Louisville among numerous others. Like several of Arkansas commits, he would have had countless other offers if he would have left his recruitment open longer. He only took one official visit, to Arkansas. Robb Smith and Rory Segrest were his recruiters.

Player Ratings:

ESPN- 4* with a grade of 83, #98 in ESPN300.

Fully expect to hear Froholdts name soon and often in Fayetteville and around the SEC. He is Arkansas' highest rated recruit and enrolled in classes in January.
