The Class of 2019 is wrapped up, and we know Arkansas’ roster situation for the upcoming season save for some potential moves on the transfer circuit. After missing out on some targets at signing day, Arkansas actually has a couple of available scholarships to work with for the coming season. Here’s how it charts out right now.

A couple of notes here, with Arkansas so thin at linebacker, listing Deon Edwards and D’Vone McClure, who usually fill in at the nickel slot, are more likely to be listed as linebackers for the upcoming season. So while things are very thin at the position, those two will help those numbers by filling that hybrid role.
Arkansas is at 83 scholarship players, but it could well be 82 if Dee Walker isn’t back with the team come fall. At the moment that doesn’t seem too likely. Chad Morris didn’t have the most positive update at his signing day presser.
The Hogs might not be done adding to their quarterback room. One grad transfer the Hogs are reportedly interested in is former Texas A&M quarterback Nick Starkel. He will graduate a year early so where ever he goes he will have two years of eligibility. He’s stated interest in the Hogs and has shown some excitement to reunite with former teammate Rakeem Boyd.

And Boyd returned the love on twitter as well.
