Arkansas Recruiting Update: Kellen Diesch Commits To The Razorbacks

Offensive Tackle 6'7" 270 lbs Trophy Club, Texas

Pretty sure this is the first time I've ever seen a recruit post a picture of the Bill Clinton Sports Illustrated cover in the tweet announcing his commitment.  That's cool and all, anything to help build excitement for the Hogs - even if the cover does infamously misspell the Hog Call on the cover.

Before we diverge much further, Arkansas finally landed another commitment and it's a big one! Offensive tackle Kellen Diesch has committed to the Razorbacks!

The Hogs have had stellar offensive line classes throughout the Bielema era and Diesch is the first commitment in that group for 2016. He's listed as a 3* on both Rivals and 247 but boasts an offer list of someone rated much higher. He chose the Hogs over offers from Alabama, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oregon, Michigan, Tennessee, Baylor, TCU, Miami, Nebraska, and many others.

Diesch visited Arkansas for the spring game, and many experts began predicting a commitment to Arkansas, but weeks and weeks went by without his commitment. He also took an unofficial visit to A&M earlier this month. However, the Hogs persevered and have now picked up a big target for their class.

Buidling depth along the line is one of Arkansas' priorities with every class, and Diesch will be a big part of that in the 2016 group.
