FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Three new offensive linemen officially joined the Arkansas football team Monday.
Freshmen Kirby Adcock, Shane Clenin and Dalton Wagner participated in their first college football practice as the Razorbacks continued Belk Bowl preparations.

The Razorbacks play Virginia Tech on Dec. 29 in Charlotte, N.C.
Adcock joins the Hogs from Nashville, Ark., while Clenin is from Festus, Mo.
Wagner picked the Razorbacks over offers from several Big Ten schools despite growing up in the heart of that conference in Richmond, Ill.
None of the three newcomers will participate in the Belk Bowl, but because of special NCAA rules, they can get a head start on their college football careers during this time.
Arkansas is expecting several early enrollees to join the program for the spring semester.
Six Arkansas high school commits — most recently, linebacker Kyrei Fisher — have signed financial aid papers, and three junior-college transfers have signed letters of intent as well.
In addition to the three offensive linemen, Arkansas will add quarterback Daulton Hyatt, cornerback Korey Hernandez and Fisher to the roster in the spring, along with junior-college tight end Jeremy Patton and wide receivers Brandon Martin and Jonathan Nance.
There is also a chance that more Arkansas commits will sign financial aid agreements and enroll early.
