The Razorbacks have added a second 4-star prospect to their 2021 class now that Rockledge athlete Raheim Sanders has received his long-awaited boost to 4-star status.

Not only is the future Razorback wide receiver (or running back, or linebacker) now a 4-star, he's also in the Rivals250, making his debut as lucky No. 250.

Sanders chose Arkansas over offers from Miami, Florida State, Oklahoma and 18 other DI programs.

The versatile athlete is just Sam Pittman's second commit out of Florida in his tenure as head coach and his recruitment was led by special teams coordinator Scott Fountain.

Sanders joins Arkansas wide receiver KeTron Jackson in the top 250 and they'll both be signing on Dec. 16 and enrolling in January for spring football.

ANALYSIS

"Sanders, who plays basketball and runs track in addition to being a do-it-all football star, is an elite-level athlete with an enormous upside. His plight will be becoming more technically sound and specialized at one position. The good news is that the tools that cannot be coached already exist in spades. If Sanders adds size and takes to the finer points of the position at which he lands, he possesses the natural athleticism to become an all-conference type player late in his college career. Furthermore, if Sanders adds the muscle necessary to play linebacker in the SEC, he could well turn into an extremely rare weapon on that side of the ball." - Rivals
