A day after Arkansas landed a high-profile quarterback transfer, the Hogs also picked up a commitment from a wide receiver they've been targeting for a while.

The Razorbacks offered Kofi Boating back in April, one of his nearly 30 total offers, and today, Boateng decided to join the Hogs. Some of the other offers include Nebraska, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, Arizona State, North Carolina, Washington, Texas Tech, Kansas State, and several others. He's a consensus 3* prospect and rated one of the top 100 players in Texas.

Boateng is the second pure wide receiver in Arkansas' 2016 class along with Jordan Jones. The Hogs are stockpiling a nice group of wide receivers, a topic Bret Bielema even touched on today following Arkansas' scrimmage. Keon Hatcher is the only senior at the position for the Razorbacks, so it seems Arkansas is doing a great job of building a really deep corps of receivers.
