Here’s how the Hogs’ scholarships shake out.

NCAA Football: Arkansas at Mississippi Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Media Days are here, and with Talkin’ Season comes the growing excitement of football season. There has been some turnover in the roster from last season, which is to be expected after a coaching change. There have been a few transfers, both incoming and outgoing. Right now the Hogs sit at 84 scholarships, which means a walk-on currently on the team could be given one. Here is the list as of now.

Arkansas 2018 Scholarships

When you break it down, defensive line and wide receiver are the two spots with a lot of experience. Outside of that there is a lot sophomores and freshman. The back seven on the defense has seven upperclassmen and 18 underclassmen. There is going to be a lot asked of guys like Dre Greenlaw, De’Jon Harris, Kevin Richardson, and Santos Ramirez both on the field and in terms of leadership.

Offensively, the big concern is the thinness at the offensive line. Arkansas has 10 players on the line that have spent a year in Fayetteville, only seven that have played a game. The health of those guys is going to be crucial for this season. If Arkansas has a few go down with injuries, things on the offensive line can be just as perilous as it’s been the past couple of years.
