Arkansas has needed some big help in this class on the offensive line and they got some today. The Hogs landed one of their major JUCO targets in offensive tackle Myron Cunningham.
After a long period of thinking it over and making sure I made the right decision. I have decided that for the next two years I'll be continuing my academic and athletic career at The University of Arkansas. #HogsUp #WPS @MarkMods @CoachCraddock @coachdustinfry @coachchadmorris pic.twitter.com/QWTQP98C7o— Myron Cunningham (@CunninghamMyron) December 11, 2018
Cunningham is a 6’5”, 300 lbs. JUCO from Iowa Central C.C. Arkansas was one of the first major programs to offer him. Morris and staff were offering him before Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, Missouri, Mississippi State and others. After taking officials in both Fayetteville and Norman, the decision came down to Arkansas and Oklahoma.
He is expected to enroll early for the Hogs and will have two years to play in Fayetteville. As one of the Hogs’ top JUCO targets on the offensive line, Cunningham is expected to be a potential instant impact guy at a position group that badly needs it. The Hogs have struggled on the offensive line and are replacing multiple starters, including Hjalte Froholdt.
The staff recognizes how big of an issue the offensive line is, and could keep going this week. The Hogs are also favorites to add another JUCO offensive lineman in Chibueze Nwanna who is deciding this week as well.
