The February signing day is right around the corner. Even though most teams, including the Hogs, have signed 80 percent of their classes, there is still plenty to look at. Arkansas has some work to do to complete their class, which could fall anywhere from 15-25th depending on what recruiting service you look at.
Arkansas is going to end tomorrow with anywhere between three and seven more players in their class officially. A couple of the top players in the class opted to sign in the February window and there are a couple decisions still to be made. Here’s the seven names to look at this Wednesday.
Definitely Signing With The Hogs
Treylon Burks, Jalen Catalon, Hudson Henry
Burks and Henry have both been committed to the Hogs for a while, and each are in the top-3 players in the state of Arkansas no matter what service you look at. While they didn’t sign in the Early Signing Period, there was no real drama that they would sign elsewhere.
Catalon made his decision just a couple weeks ago so this will be his first window to sign since making his decision.
All three of these guys are four stars and at the top of this class. Henry and Catalon should contribute immediately. Burks however is coming off a major injury and his health will play a role in how quickly he sees the field.
Committed to Arkansas But Could Flip Elsewhere
Adonis Otey, A’Montae Spivey
Otey is a teammate of Trey Knox, one of the Hogs excellent class of wideouts, but the cornerback has kept his options open even after committing to the Hogs. Right now it’s between Arkansas and USC for him. He recently made his official to Las Vegas and things could go either way for him.
Arkansas has had Spivey as their lone running back in this class but Ole Miss has made a late push for him after Jerrion Ealy decommitted from the Rebels.
Uncommitted, Hogs In The Mix
Lakia Henry, Chris Russell
Arkansas is extremely thin at linebacker at the moment and landing either one of these two would go a long way towards helping that. Henry is the top JUCO linebacker in the country and has his decision between Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas after decommitting from Tennessee. Even though his last official visit was to Austin, the Hogs and Rebels are the two favorites.
Russell is an inside linebacker from Dyersburg, TN. He doesn’t come with the same rating as Henry but would still be a boost for the Hogs. It’s between Arkansas and Texas A&M for his commitment.
