Arkansas enters National Signing Day looking to put the finish touches on its 2017 recruiting class. Stick here throughout Wednesday for live updates, news, analysis and more from SEC Country Arkansas reporter Trent Shadid.
The Razorbacks have officially signed 24 players in the 2017 class. Three others have been introduced as expected blueshirts who will have their scholarships delayed.
Two of the headliners in Arkansas’ class — 4-star wide receiver Brandon Martin and 4-star tight end Jeremy Patton — are signed. Martin is enrolled for the spring semester. Patton is expected to arrive early this summer.
Defensive backs Chevin Calloway and Montaric Brown are the other 4-star signees in the class.

Where will Calloway sign?
The Razorbacks had reason to feel good about their chances with Calloway entering National Signing Day, and those feelings proved prophetic.
Calloway signed with Arkansas on Wednesday morning, becoming the highest-rated high school signee in their class. He picked the Hogs over Ole Miss and Texas. Landing Calloway gives the Razorbacks their best crop of incoming defensive backs in recent memory.
Blueshirts officially welcomed to program
Arkansas introduced outside linebackers Gabe Richardson and Hayden Henry, and offensive lineman Ty Clary as expected blueshirts. As blueshirts, their scholarships will likely be delayed until after the fall semester. However, they will still join the program in the fall. The timing of their scholarships is dependent on Arkansas’ 85 scholarship limit going forward.
The commits are locked in
Arkansas didn’t have any bad surprises Wednesday. All of the commits who were expected to sign did so.
The Hogs did lose a commitment from 3-star defensive lineman Troy James last week. James signed with Oklahoma.
