Georgia transfer DB commits to Arkansas

Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman revealed a surprise transfer addition Tuesday during a meeting with the media ahead of the start of spring practice, with former Georgia cornerback Jaheem Singletary joining the program.

Singletary, a former five-star recruit, was ranked the No. 2 cornerback in the country for the class of 2022, according to Rivals. He entered the transfer portal on January 13 and announced his commitment to Arkansas on his Twitter account.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back will have at least three seasons of eligibility remaining for Hogg. According to the Georgia Athletics website, he saw action in two of 12 games as a reserve cornerback. He did not record any statistics for the Bulldogs.

Hogs add another defensive lineman to 2024 class

Arkansas got some more good news on Saturday when Dion Stutts, a 2024 three-star defensive lineman from Memphis, Tennessee, committed to Arkansas.

Stutts, who plays both on the sidelines and inside on the defensive line, made his pledge public through his Twitter account.

Stutts made his decision after his second informal visit to Arkansas over the weekend. He chose the Hogs over a plethora of SEC schools including Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, South Carolina and Missouri.

Last season, Stutts helped his school post an 8-4 record, good for third in the Tennessee Division II-AAA West standings.

Stutts’ commitment gives Arkansas two solid defensive linemen in the class so far, as he joins four-star defensive end Cavion Henderson, who committed to Arkansas on Nov. 6.

Arkansas offers offensive lineman transfer out of Houston

Hogg still has some scholarships left to transfer before the 2023 season, and Pittman has said the team still needs another offensive lineman. The Hogs made an offer to the well-decorated transfer guard out of Houston on Friday.

Cameron Johnson, who spent four seasons with the Cougars, entered the transfer portal on Wednesday and immediately received offers from Arkansas, South Carolina, West Virginia, California, Maryland and others.

Johnson is an interior offensive lineman, a position Pittman has said needs more depth in the 2023 season.

“I want to see another guy who can snap the ball offensively,” Pittman said at the start of the early signing period in December. “We’ll probably have to find another one. In losing guys last year, a bunch of those guys could break out. Obviously Rickey played center, but Jones could snap. And so, we’re going to have to continue to look at that offense. .

According to Pro Football Focus, last season, Johnson played a total of 905 snaps and ranked No. 197 among guards with a total offensive grade of 65.2, a pass block grade of 79.4 and a block grade of 63.3. According to his Houston profile, he allowed just one sack in 556 opportunities.

Maryland defensive lineman transfer visits Arkansas

While the Hogs received good news in the return of defensive lineman Taurean Carter, who was sidelined with an injury for the entire 2022 season, they still need additional depth on the defensive line for the upcoming season.

Arkansas was host to Maryland defensive line transfer Anthony “Tank” Booker Jr. on Saturday. The Cincinnati native entered the transfer portal on March 6.

Last season for the Terps, Booker made 27 tackles, including two sacks and two forced fumbles. He spent four seasons with Maryland and will be looking for a place to spend his final season of eligibility.

Arkansas hosts Stacked Prospect Day

The second weekend after the end of the NCAA recruiting dead period, Arkansas hosted a large group of high-level recruits on campus for its most recent Prospect Day.

Overall, there were more than 20 visitors from the Class of 2024 to the Class of 2026. The Hoggs also received a commitment from a visitor from Stutts. Some of those recruits offered scholarships to join the Razorbacks.

More than eight four-star athletes were on campus for the tour, as well as plenty of future classes of recruits that have not yet received rankings by rivals, but are drawing attention from some of the biggest programs in the country.

Pair of high-priority targets heading to Arkansas on Monday

While Arkansas is hosting a large group of recruits this weekend, two more are planning a trip to Fayetteville on Monday.

Air Noland, a quarterback from Fairborn, Georgia, and defensive back Braylon Conley from Humble, Texas, are both four-star recruits in the Class of 2024. Conley recently released a Top 10 that included Hogg, and some of Noland’s offers. Major events in the nation.

Noland was selected first-team All-State for Class 6A in Georgia last season, and was awarded 6A Player of the Year. He led Langston Hughes High School to a 15–0 record and the 6A state championship last season, throwing for 55 touchdowns for 4,095 yards, adding five scores on the field.

Rivals ranked Conley as the No. 63 player and No. 39 player in the state of Texas.

Brother of Arkansas defensive lineman receives four-star rating

Lance Jackson, brother of current Arkansas defensive lineman Landon Jackson, received a four-star rating by Rivals last week.

The athlete, who plays on both the defensive line and tight end, also visited Fayetteville this weekend.

A native of Texarkana, Texas, Jackson plays for Pleasant Grove High School. Last season, he helped the team post an 11-3 record on the season.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound athlete visited Texas Tech last weekend. He has offers from Texas Tech, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Baylor and others.
