The Razorbacks are definitely putting in work to have a defensive roster with a strong South Louisiana flavor. Arkansas has received its first commitment for the 2017 recruiting class with the pledge of safety/outside linebacker Derrick Munson from Archbishop Rummel in Metairie, Louisiana just outside of New Orleans.
Committing to Arkansas today #hogs lets go!!!— keedi boiii (@dmunson90) January 29, 2016
Munson is the fourth player from the school to commit to Arkansas in recent years, along with current Hogs Henre' Toliver and Dwayne Eugene, and current commit Briston Guidry. The Razorbacks are hoping to add to it next week when 5-star cornerback Kristian Fulton announces his decision. Two other current commits, linebackers De'jon Harris and Giovanni LaFrance, are both from the New Orleans area.
Since he's a 2017 prospect, the ratings aren't fully complete yet but he seems to be listed around the top 20-30 players in Louisiana as of right now.
So with just over a year to go, the Hogs have one on the board for the class of 2017.
