All of Arkansas’ 10 early enrollees have arrived on campus and began classes Tuesday.
The Razorbacks officially announced their seven high school mid-term enrollees Tuesday afternoon. All of the players had been previously reported by SEC Country as early enrollees.
Here’s the list:
- Kirby Adcock, 3-star OL: Adcock is one of four in-state commits and the only one enrolling early. He has the versatility to potentially play any position on the offensive line during his career. He and the two other OL commits in the class already have practiced with the team.
- Shane Clenin, 3-star OL: Clenin also is viewed as a potential swing player with the ability to play center, guard or tackle. He has the ideal hard-nosed, run-blocking mentality coach Bret Bielema looks for in offensive linemen.
- Kyrei Fisher, 3-star LB: Arkansas closed strong with Fisher, who committed and signed his financial aid agreement in mid-December. He previously had been committed to Minnesota, and he also had Michigan State and Texas among his final choices. He’s the type of player who fits well in a 3-4 defense, which the Hogs are expected to shift to next season.
- Korey Hernandez, 3-star CB: Hernandez is one of three cornerbacks currently committed in the class. He’s been unwavering with his pledge since announcing Arkansas as his choice last summer. He was a do-everything talent at Cedar Grove, starring as a defensive back and also contributing on special teams and at wide receiver.
- Daulton Hyatt, 3-star QB: Hyatt is an intelligent player with a strong arm. He’s a pro-style quarterback who eventually could grow into the perfect fit for Arkansas’ offensive system. Though he’s primarily a passer, his running ability is underrated.
- Dalton Wagner, 3-star OL: At 6-foot-9, 315 pounds, the Razorbacks almost certainly have Wagner pegged as a future starter at tackle. There’s even a chance he comes in and competes for playing time right away because starting left tackle Dan Skipper needs to be replaced.
- Maleek Williams, 3-star RB: Williams is a bruising back who runs extremely well downhill. Though not as highly recruited, he is comparable to former standout Arkansas running back and fellow Florida native Alex Collins.
Those seven are in addition to three junior college players who signed their National Letter of Intent in December and are now on campus.
Here’s the list of those players:
- Brandon Martin, 4-star WR: A Louisiana native, Martin is the No. 8 overall JUCO recruit in the class and a huge get for the Hogs. He will have his chance at immediate playing time because there are several key contributors to replace at wide receiver. The Razorbacks beat out Auburn, Mississippi State and a late push from LSU to sign him.
- Jonathan Nance, 3-star WR: Nance is a versatile, possession-style receiver with a comparable skill set to junior Jared Cornelius. He spent a semester at Southern Miss playing defensive back before heading to Mississippi Gulf Coast in hopes of landing an SEC opportunity as a receiver.
- Jeremy Patton, 4-star TE: The No. 1 JUCO tight end in the class signed with Arkansas over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Louisville and Southern Cal. He’ll have a chance to make an immediate impact because the Hogs need to replace standout tight end Jeremy Sprinkle.
