Welcome to SEC Country’s daily Arkansas Razorbacks recruiting notebook. In this edition, we discuss a New Orleans running back, an upcoming commitment decision and a new recruiting graphic.
LB De’Jon Harris has New Orleans RB Terrell Brown interested in Arkansas
The success of linebacker De’Jon Harris at Arkansas continues to help the Hogs catch the attention of recruits from the New Orleans area. The latest example is 2019 running back Terrell “Smoke” Brown, who has shown high interest in the Razorbacks.
Brown (5-foot-11, 190 pounds) attends Helen Cox High School in Harvey, La., less than 10 miles south of downtown New Orleans. He previously went to John Ehret High School — the same school Harris attended. Helen Cox and John Ehret are separated by less than four miles.
SEC Country reporter Sam Spiegelman stopped by Helen Cox earlier this week to get a look at the top prospects from the school. Brown, whose offers include Arkansas and Florida, was among those who stood out. He told Spiegelman he is high on the Razorbacks because of Harris.
Spiegelman said he even sees Arkansas as the team to beat for Brown’s commitment. Brown is expected to visit the Hogs’ campus in June during one of their prospect camps.
OL target Triston Miller to make decision this summer
Arkansas hosted 2019 offensive line target Triston Miller for an official visit earlier this month. That trip helped put the Razorbacks firmly among the top choices for the Charlotte (N.C.) Country Day prospect.
Miller (6-foot-6, 275 pounds) recently told SEC Country he is going to make a commitment decision before his senior season begins. Though he doesn’t have a firm date set, he said the school of his choice could be announced as early as June. The Razorbacks are expected to be firmly in the mix when the time comes for him to make an announcement.
He expects his next commitment to be his last, though it won’t be his first. Miller committed Wake Forest in December. He chose the Demon Deacons over Duke, East Carolina and Maryland. But not long after his commitment, he received offers from several more Power 5 programs. He suddenly had opportunities at Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia and others. The 3-star prospect re-opened his recruitment and has Arkansas at the top of list, along with Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee.
Arkansas has two offensive linemen committed in the 2019 class — Beaux Limmer and Joseph Stone.
