Following a pair of solid pickups last week, Arkansas gained another today in Louisiana linebacker Josh Paul of New Orleans De La Salle. Paul becomes the 13th member of the Razorbacks’ 2017 class.
Per Danny West of HawgSports.com, Paul was receiving interest but did not receive offers from Ole Miss and Mississippi State. He did, though, have offers from Ball State, Jackson State, Nicholls and a couple of other small schools.
Before you become disappointed in his offer sheet, read this:
Paul didn't have any other notable offers, but I liked his film. Covers ground, makes big plays, and he's smart.— Danny West (@DannyWest1) June 22, 2016

Paul’s commitment also adds yet another Louisiana player, which Arkansas has become quite good at the last couple of years thanks to Michael Smith. Per West, Paul’s pledge makes 13 Boot Kids since 2014.
