A big physical receiver is something the Hogs haven’t had in a while. Now they’ve brought in one of the better ones in the 2019 class. 4-star Trey Knox out of Tennessee is now one of the newest Hogs.
The Hogs and Vols were his main two choices but he also had interest from big time programs like Auburn, Clemson, and Florida before committing to the Hogs in October. At 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, he’s a physical receiver that can high point the ball and be a big red zone threat.
He perfectly compliments the rest of the wide receiver class with his unique skill set. He’s a different type of receiver from the quicker Treylon Burks, Shamar Nash and TQ Jackson. These four wideouts are all highly regarded, Knox and Burks are the two highest rated commits the Hogs have right now.
Knox is the highest ranked out of state player the Razorbacks are bringing in for the Class of 2019. He’s a top-250 player according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings and is the eighth best player out of the state of Tennessee.
