Keeping an eye one the brand new early signing period.

NCAA Football: Texas State at Arkansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Today marks the start of the brand new Early Signing Period, a brand new window where recruits can sign with their schools two months earlier than usual. Because this is the first year of this, there are a lot of unknowns but a lot of teams are planning on signing the majority of their classes in this window.

Signed with Arkansas

ILB - Bumper Pool (4-star)

QB - Connor Noland (4-star)

CB - LaDarrius Bishop (3-star)

WR - Michael Woods (3-star)

DE - Isaiah Nichols (3-star)

DT - Billy Ferrell (3-star)

OL - Silas Robinson (3-star)

Committed But Not Signed

OL - Noah Gatlin (3-star)

DE - John Mincey (3-star)

OL - Luke Jones (3-star)

Wait that class seems small, is that all Arkansas will sign?

No, although the class was always outlooked to be a smaller class this isn’t the only chance Arkansas will have to sign players. While most are signing in this window, there will still be plenty of recruiting battles coming up in the offseason. Chad Morris and company will certainly need to get creative in this recruiting class though.

The previous staff was extremely selective and the coaching change hasn’t helped that at all. But once the staff is fully in place Morris and company can find some diamonds in the rough and potentially some JUCO guys to fill out the rest of the class in the coming months.
