Arkansas coach Bret Bielema had talked about going ‘global’ with the Razorbacks’ satellite camps, but the team is no longer taking part in one located in its own backyard.
The Razorbacks were supposed to hold one such camp at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on June 9, but that camp has since been canceled, according to the Dallas Morning News’ Brad Townsend.
The Razorbacks were originally supposed to team up with Texas A&M-Commerce, which dropped out. It was later replaced by Abilene Christian, according to Townsend. Following the news, Arkansas dropped out of the camp and will no longer host recruits at the home of Arkansas alumnus Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys.
Arkansas has two other satellite camps scheduled: One in Little Rock (Ark.) at War Memorial Stadium on June 5 and another in Fayetteville on June 11, according to 247Sports’ Otis Kirk.
Texas has become a big part the Razorbacks’ recruiting efforts. The Hogs signed four recruits from the Lone Star State in last year’s recruiting cycle, including the nation’s No. 3 running back, Devwah Whaley (according to the 247Sports Composite).
