Right before signing day, Arkansas got a big push from JUCO offensive linemen to help with arguably the biggest need on the team. One of those reinforcements is Chibueze Nwanna who officially signed with the Hogs.
Nwanna is the highest ranked offensive lineman coming to Arkansas in this class according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. He is expected to 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.
Originally from Maryland, he played at Lackawanna C.C. in Pennsylvania. His size (6’8”, 315 lbs.) is going to be a welcome addition to the offensive line that needs major help.
Arkansas didn’t hit on their biggest offensive line targets of the class, so they had to reach into the JUCO ranks. Getting Nwanna is a good get from there, as he’s sixth highest ranked offensive tackle from JUCO.
