Arkansas has 10 players in the 2017 recruiting class set to arrive in Fayetteville this month and enroll early. The list includes two 4-star junior college prospects and three offensive linemen, and all 10 are from different states.
- Kirby Adcock, 3-star OL, Nashville (Ark.) High School: 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, Jefferson High School (Festus, Mo.): 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, Tulsa (Okla.) Union High School: 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, Cedar Grove High School (Ellenwood, Ga.): 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, Etowah High School (Attalla, Ala.): 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.
- Brandon Martin, 4-star WR, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College: 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, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College: 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, Arizona Western College: 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.
- Dalton Wagner, 3-star OL, Richmond-Burton (Ill.) High School: 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, Charlotte High School (Punta Gorda, Fla.): 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.
