Arkansas extended an offer to Under Armour All-American defensive end Caleb Okechukwu on Saturday.
Okechukwu (6-foot-3, 250 pounds) attends St. John’s College High School in Washington, D.C. He is one of the more intriguing prospects in the 2018 class.
He’s a 3-star recruit and outside the top 1,700 recruits in the class according to the 247Sports composite. However, his inclusion in the Under Armour All-America Game and increasing list of interested schools suggests he’s a far better prospect than the rankings indicate.
Okechukwu is reportedly set to officially visit Texas next weekend. His offer list also includes Arizona and Tennessee. He has reported interest from Georgia, Mississippi State, Washington and several other Power 5 programs.
Defensive end is one of Arkansas’ top remaining priorities in the 2018 class. The Hogs signed eight players during the early signing period last month with the expectation of signing 6-8 more next month.
