The second JUCO OT of the week!

NCAA Football: Tulsa at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

This week, Chad Morris and company went 2-for-2 on their JUCO offensive line targets. Just a day after landing Myron Cunningham, the Hogs got a committment from Lackawanna Community College OT Chibueze Nwanna.

Nwanna was seen as a very likely get for the Hogs after a very good visit this past weekend. He’s not going to be the highest rated in this class but his size at 6’8” and 315 lbs. will be a very welcome addition to an offensive line in need of depth. He chose the Hogs over notable offers from Cincinnati, Louisville, and Maryland.

Like Cunningham, Nwanna is expected to sign in the upcoming early period and enroll in January and will have two seasons with the Hogs. He played right tackle for one of the most successful JUCO teams in the nation this year, who finished the season sixth in the nation.

Arkansas hasn’t hit on their highest rated offensive line targets, but have been successful in finding guys from the JUCO ranks to join with some developmental projects on the line. Arkansas now has five commits coming in to bolster an offensive line that needs some major help.
