The Arkansas Razorback recruiting class has an impressive resume, but it isn’t all about the stars.
Here’s how to find the Razorbacks most promising players in their final two seasons.
The Razorbacks are entering the third year of a new regime.
It is a time of transition for coach Bret Bielema, who took over the program in March of 2015 and immediately began assembling a staff of young coaches.
The new coaching staff brought in former Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, who spent the past two seasons as offensive coordinator at Boise State.
He was hired after a disappointing 2014 season and has brought a new philosophy to the program.
The program is still searching for a first-round pick, and Bieleum has some high-profile names to get a hold of, including defensive end LaMarcus Daniels, who is a top-ranked recruit and one of the nation’s top defensive ends.
The 2018 class has a reputation for recruiting in the Midwest.
There are three top-10 prospects on the board and five players who are currently ranked in the top 10.
A key piece to the 2019 class is tight end Anthony Goudelock.
The 6-foot-3, 232-pounder has great size and athleticism for his position.
He could have a big year as a sophomore in 2019, according to Scout.
The 2019 class also includes five high school seniors, which could provide the Razorback team with an edge in recruiting.
The recruiting class was ranked by 247Sports as the No. 3 class in the nation, which ranked No. 1 in the SEC.
The Arkansas coaching staff has been successful in recruiting over the past decade.
The Razorbacks have won six of their past seven SEC games, including three straight titles.
The class also features a number of talented recruits.
Arkansas had five players on the 2018 recruiting list who went on to play in the NFL.
Three of those players are listed as offensive linemen, two are linebackers and one is cornerback.
