Join us here at SEC Country for the “Trent’s Trough” notebook as Arkansas Razorbacks beat writer Trent Shadid provides the latest insight on all Hogs recruiting news.
Williams thrilled with offer according to older brother
Arkansas recently extended an offer to 2019 Bishop Dunne High School (Dallas, Texas) defensive back Brian Williams.
Williams picked up the offer only hours after his older brother, Rawleigh, a sophomore running back for the Razorbacks, had rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown in a 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech last Saturday.
“I talked to him probably five, 10 minutes after he got that offer,” Rawleigh Williams said. “You could see it in his face that he was so happy about it. But it’s early. He’s a sophomore. He has a while, but I’m sure he’ll make the best decision for him.”
Brian’s recruitment has gained steam much faster than what Rawleigh experienced. A 4-star prospect, Brian is the No. 1 safety recruit and No. 3 overall in the 2019 class.
“My first offer was my freshman year,” Rawleigh Williams said. “It was Ole Miss. I didn’t have — what does he have — 13? I never had 13. He’s got me beat already.”
Munson ‘firm’ in his commitment according to Toliver
Arkansas cornerback Henre’ Toliver is one of three Razorbacks who attended Archbishop Rummel High School (New Orleans) and still keeps a close eye on the program and its players, hopeful the pipeline to Fayetteville continues.
He recently told SEC Country he has a strong relationship with Hogs linebacker commit Derrick Munson, a senior at Archbishop Rummel.
“I’m real close with Derrick Munson,” Toliver said. “I talked to him not too long ago. He’s real solid with his commit.
“I talk to all them a lot. Being in Louisiana, everybody just wants you to go to LSU. I’m guessing like the people that go elsewhere just want to get out of there and see something different. I told them, I was like, ‘Bro, you got to get up out of there and just come up here,’ ”
Arkansas offered another Archbishop Rummel prospect Wednesday in 2018 4-star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.

Basketball offers Moss
The Arkansas basketball program recently offered East High School (Memphis, Tenn.) guard T.J. Moss, one of the top prospects in the 2018 class.
Moss reportedly has offers from 12 programs, with Alabama, Florida and Mississippi also among them. He is the No. 3 prospect in Tennessee and No. 77 nationally in the 2018 class.
The Razorbacks’ already have four commits in the 2018 class, which currently ranks No. 1 nationally.
