We were critical of the Arkansas coaches on Friday when a defensive lineman decommitted, leaving the Razorbacks with zero defensive line commitments days before National Signing Day while multiple defensive linemen in the state had already received several non-Arkansas offers.
Well, the coaches put in some work to address that pretty quickly. David Porter, from Joe T. Robinson (MY ALMA MATER WOOOO!) in Little Rock, came to Fayetteville for a secret official visit this weekend and was offered a scholarship Sunday morning. He immediately accepted.

Porter had been committed to Colorado State for the last few days, so the visit to Arkansas was kept secret until he received his offer. Porter also reports offers from Kansas State, Baylor, Texas, Iowa State, Rutgers and others. He’s a consensus 3-star prospect.
This is the 22nd commitment in Arkansas’ class, the fifth in-state commitment, and the second from Robinson. Fellow Senator, receiver Koilan Jackson will be joining Porter in Fayetteville this fall. They’ll join TJ Hammonds, who graduated from Robinson last year. We’ll continue hearing about Robinson for at least another year, as junior athlete Nathan Page is likely to be one of the state’s top prospects for the 2018 class.
