Former Hog WR Javontee Herndon made his NFL debut Monday night with the San Diego Chargers. He had one catch for 12 yards and a first down, and if you look closely, he also showed off some college pride in his mouthpiece. That's the Razorback logo on it. Pretty cool.
Bielema's taken plenty of heat for the last few days regarding those comments about Ohio State's schedule and promptly losing to Toledo, but we're posting this because it's coming from a high-profile NFL coach, which means A) WE'VE GONE MAINSTREAM! and B) I'd think we probably don't want NFL coaches making fun of our coach. Probably not the best recruiting tool. Oh well. Maybe we can get Chris Gragg to say something to him.
A fifth-year senior, Turner played in 45 games his career, starting the final 25 of them. He was elected captain by his teammates as a senior and was the primary communicator on the back end of the nation's No. 10 defense. Turner posted 65 tackles with one interception and four pass breakups as a senior. In 2013, Turner led the team with 97 total tackles and also picked off two passes.
Wilson caught 17 passes for 220 yards (12.9 avg.) as a senior, including a highlight-reel 36-yard touchdown reception in the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl win over Texas. Wilson gave the Razorbacks a speed option outside in his two seasons as a Razorback. The Glendale, Ariz. native redshirted in 2013 after sustaining an injury prior to the season. As a junior in 2013, Wilson appeared in all 12 games, making nine receptions for 117 yards.
Mitchell played his senior season as Arkansas' starter at the strongside linebacker position and also contributed on special teams. The fifth-year senior helped the Razorback defense post back-to-back shutouts over No. 17 LSU and No. 8 Ole Miss in Arkansas' final two home games of the season, including 9 tackles vs LSU. In 2013, Mitchell made 77 total tackles and played in 11 games with eight starts.
Another Razorback is getting a shot with Washington. Brey Cook played in 11 games as a true freshman and was a regular starter on Arkansas' offensive line from that point on. He came to Fayetteville as a 4* top-100 recruit. It's easy to wonder if he would have been able to develop into a star if he'd come to Arkansas in a more stable time instead of having to deal with everything the Class of 2011 has had to deal with. Regardless, he's been a great Hog and we hope he does well in Washington.
