The Arkansas Razorbacks will have a somewhat packed running back room in 2020 but graduating Rakeem Boyd and TJ Hammonds will free up room for a new addition or two in the 2021 class.

So far, new Arkansas running backs coach Jimmy Smith has taken it slow with offers, sending out just eight to prospects in five different states. The staff as a whole has offered 130 2021 recruits and counting.

A former high school head coach in Georgia, Smith's main recruiting territories naturally include the Peach State, as well as south Florida, central Alabama and south Arkansas.

Here's a closer look at the running backs Arkansas has offered and their recruitment:

ICYMI: Closer look at QB offers

Committed Elsewhere (1)

Alabama native, 4-star running back Armoni Goodwin began receiving DI interest after a 1400-yard season as a sophomore. He committed to Auburn a month and a half after the Tigers offered him last summer, then sustained an ACL/MCL injury just three games into his junior season. Goodwin just went back to visit Auburn at the end of the contact period. He's racked up offers from 10 DI programs.

The highest-ranked of Arkansas's RB offers, Evan Pryor hails from North Carolina, a rare recruiting ground for the Razorbacks. Pryor has over 30 DI offers and he's been to visit Penn State, Georgia, North Carolina and Alabama several times already. Pryor had over 2,000 all-purpose yards as a junior. He cut a list of favorites down to six on Feb. 13: UNC, Georgia, Penn State, Ohio State, USC and Oklahoma.
