Decision Day Looms Large for Rivals100 DE Kavion Henderson

After losing the pledge of in-state running back Braylen Russell earlier this month, the Razorbacks' 2024 class is empty - but that could all change Sunday afternoon.

Priority defensive end target and Rivals100 prospect Kavion Henderson is set to announce his college decision at Leeds (Ala.) High School Sunday, Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. CT.

Henderson, who will decide between Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia and Oklahoma, was long considered a Razorback lean after a series of offseason visits.

A late offer from the Tide boosted them into his final five, and - as recently as three weeks ago, into the driver's seat of his recruitment.

"Alabama has done a great job recruiting me," Henderson said. "They are number one right now. The relationship just gets better and better. They want me and continue to tell me how much they want me. I'm happy to have them seriously recruiting me. They've done a good job."

We'll have full coverage of the 6-foot-3, 238-pound DE's decision day here at HawgBeat, but until then you can check out our breakdown of Arkansas' chances to land him here.

Alabama Joins the Fight for In-State Legacy QB

Arkansas' path to landing in-state Rivals250 prospect Walker White as their quarterback of the 2024 class got a little rockier Wednesday as he added Alabama to his already impressive offer sheet.

Rated as the nation's No. 170 overall prospect in the class, White has garnered his fair share of attention. Despite that, his long-standing family connections to Arkansas have led many to believe the Razorbacks are the team to beat in his recruitment.

It's too early to tell how this most recent offer from Nick Saban's staff impacts that belief, but it's sure to be a dogfight for a commitment from the 6-foot-3, 210-pound dual-threat out of Little Rock Christian.

For more on what this offer means for some of Arkansas' other in-state targets, check out our full story here.

Dylan Hasz Registers Nation's Top Speed

Though he's been overlooked by many Arkansas fans to this point in his senior season, Bixby (Okla.) ATH Dylan Hasz is set to bring some serious speed to the Razorback secondary.

Rated as a two-star prospect, Hasz joined his brother Luke in committing to the Hogs back in July. While his potential ceiling with the Razorbacks has been debated, there's no questioning this most recent statistic out of TITAN Sports, the world leader in sports tracking and data analytics.

Fortunately for Razorback fans, Dylan's speed (and Luke's pass-catching ability) will be available for all to watch on ESPN2 this Thursday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m CT as their Spartans look to extend their nation-leading win streak to 59 games in their regular-season finale against Jenks (Okla.).

Standout Performers

Each week in the roundup I like to highlight some future Razorbacks' performances and this Friday brought about two clear candidates in Alex Sanford (LB) and Micah Tease (WR).

Sanford, a high-three-star linebacker out of Oxford (Miss.), committed to the Hogs in June off the heels of his official visit. That announcement came with great fanfare, and Sanford made sure to remind Razorback fans why Michael Scherer was so high on the fringe four-star.

On the offensive side of things, Tease stole the show for his Booker T. Washington (Okla.) Hornets en route to a 41-14 win over Charles Page (Okla.).

He covered 162 yards on just four catches, taking each reception to the endzone and once again solidifying his status as a Rivals250 prospect and one of Arkansas' highest-upside commitments.

Could OL Commit Luke Brown Challenge Cam Little at Kicker?

Though he's rated as a four-star offensive tackle and a cornerstone of the Razorback OL class, Luke Brown may be better suited in Scott Fountain's special teams unit.

Brown knocked in an extra point to close out his Henry County (Tenn.) Patriots' 47-0 victory against Portland (Tenn.) Friday night, and made sure his future coaches took note of his versatility with a tweet to Cody Kennedy and Sam Pittman.
