Arkansas Recruiting News: Shane Clenin Commits to the Razorbacks

Offensive Lineman 6'6" 285 lbs. Festus, Missouri

The Razorbacks are clearly doing their best to fill their numbers along the offensive line with their third commitment by mid-April, all of which have come over the last two weeks.

Shane Clenin is the latest commitment. He made his pledge while on campus for an unofficial visit this weekend.

Clenin comes to Arkansas from just south of St. Louis and chose the Hogs over nine other offers from Iowa State, Colorado State and several others. He has not been rated by Rivals and is a three-star prospect on 247.

This is Arkansas' seventh commitment for the 2017 class and the third offensive lineman. All three have been relatively under the radar players with few major offers and not yet rated by all of the recruiting services. It really seems to be a different strategy than we've seen in previous years when Sam Pittman was in charge of all the offensive line recruiting.

Last year, for instance, Arkansas only had one offensive line commitment heading into December. Pittman was known for being choosy, and it helped bring some great lineman to Arkansas, but the Hogs also failed to meet their goals the last two years in terms of the number of linemen they signed. Hopefully new offensive line coach Kurt Anderson can help turn that around.
