And another one.
The Razorbacks landed, quite literally, their biggest commitment for the 2017 class this morning when Dalton Wagner gave his verbal to Bret Bielema. Wagner is a 6-foot-9, 305-pound monster offensive tackle, giving Arkansas 19 commitments for next year's class.
Wagner committed to the coaching staff on his unofficial visit to Fayetteville with his mother yesterday, but waited until today to make it official. The tackle chose the Razorbacks over Illinois, Utah, Louisville, California and a number of other offers.
First-year offensive line coach Kurt Anderson led the way in Wagner's recruitment, offering him toward the end of February. Wagner becomes the third offensive tackle to join the class.
Wagner is a three-star prospect, according to Rivals, and the nation's 63rd best player at his position. Arkansas will lose 6-foot-10 Dan Skipper after this upcoming season, and it's nice to see a possible replacement in line not only at that specific position but in stature as well.
Momma Wagner took to Twitter after the announcement was made:
Mama's Seal of Approval. Welcome to your new home, @DaltonWagner77 #WPS pic.twitter.com/cUfrRQTgol— Nancy Wagner (@mamawags) July 29, 2016
Then Wagner himself:
Excited to call Arkansas my new home starting 2017 and to be an official part of The #Razorbacks. #committed pic.twitter.com/LkTvdaHI3Z— Dalton Wagner (@DaltonWagner77) July 29, 2016
