Leave it to Bret Bielema to create the latest out-of-the-box recruiting tactic.
Bielema wants wide receiver prospect Nico Collins so badly that he sent a recruitment letter to his principal at Clay-Chalkville High School in Alabama.

The four-star wideout is rated as the best prospect in the state and the No. 12 receiver in the country. He would undoubtedly be a great signing for Arkansas.
But there’s just one problem: Arkansas wasn’t listed among Collins’ top five schools, according to 247Sports.com. Collins’ top five consisted of Alabama, Auburn, UGA, Michigan and Clemson.
Bielema may have to pull another rabbit out of his recruiting hat to persuade Collins to consider the Razorbacks.
