Razorbacks Host Five Official Visitors This Weekend
Arkansas has hosted 13 2020 prospects on official visits so far this spring with about a month and 20 days left until the end of the visiting period. They'll add five more to the total this weekend and there's a good chance they add to their commitment total as well, which is now six.
Read up on the five prospects taking their official visits this weekend and who the major players in their recruitments are:
Though he hasn't officially reported an offer from the University of Arkansas, 3-star JUCO linebacker Juwan Mitchell is definitely a target for the Hogs. The only obstacles now are that he's already committed to Minnesota and he picked up an offer from the Longhorns on Thursday. As one of the top JUCO prospects available for 2020, I think it'll be hard for Arkansas to get a flip from him with more programs bound to offer next.
The Arkansas Razorbacks were the first to offer McKinney North standout tight end Brandon Frazier and there's a chance he could be the Hogs' seventh commit and second tight end in the 2020 class. Frazier loves Arkansas and the coaching staff so I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a decision.
However, he does have some other very good schools recruiting him and they'll try to get him to take an official visit if they can. His top eight included Arkansas with Auburn, Baylor, Nebraska, TCU, Texas Tech, Iowa State and Vanderbilt. He's visited Arkansas already this spring.
Jahari Rogers, a 3-star athlete/corner from Arlington High School, is due for a rise in rankings and the Razorbacks are lucky he's taking his official visit early. They have a chance to make a very big impression on him, which could keep them in the mix longer. Rogers is being recruited heavily by Texas and Oklahoma and he has another official set up for Florida this month.
A soon to be borderline 4-star offensive tackle, Garrett Hayes is coming back up to Fayetteville for second visit this spring and though the A&M Aggies are making a hard push for him, there is a slight chance he might buy into the Morris vision and call the Hogs.
He's going to be an early enrollee but he still has several months to make a decision.
Marshall, Texas 3-star wide receiver Savion Williams is one of the most heavily recruited wide receivers from East Texas this cycle, following in the footsteps of Arkansas signee T.Q. Jackson, and I've had a FutureCast pick in for him to Arkansas since February.
Williams is the prototypical large, quick, powerful receiver that Justin Stepp looks for and after having already visited this spring, he could be ready to shut it down and call the Hogs.
Stay locked on HawgBeat all weekend for updates on the official visits.
