The Hogs have another receiver.

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

With focus on the spring game and the basketball coaching search, the Hogs have been on the recruiting trail and got another commit this weekend. Mason Mangum out of Texas has become the 4th commit of the 2020 class.

247Sports lists Mangum as a 3-star wide receiver and he was named to the Texas 25-6A All District team last season. He’s listed at 5’11” and 171 lbs. so he doesn’t have a ton of size but he ran a 4.45 40 yard dash at The Opening Regional recently so there is plenty of speed with him.

The Hogs were very early to offer him, as he doesn’t have many offers right now. Illinois and Boston College are the other two Power 5 programs to offer him so far. That’s been a common occurrence with this coaching staff in identifying guys and being among the first to offer them. It’s a big part of the reason the 2019 class was as successful as it was.
