The Razorback Recruiting Haul

Arkansas' 2013 recruiting class - the first for new head coach Bret Bielema - should have flavor from Australia, Hawaii, Germany, Arkansas, Texas, Florida and maybe even New Jersey as national signing date rolls around on Wednesday.

By the end of the day, Arkansas should have a very eclectic signing class. You could call it global.

It should include arguably the nation's best tailback and the country's best tight end, an Australian-born junior college punter, a German-born defensive end and a Hawaiian-born offensive lineman.

Not to mention the tallest lineman signed in the history of the school and five mid-term junior college standouts already enrolled and expected to have an immediate impact.

The only players the Razorbacks appear to be waiting on decisions from are Miami (FL) Booker T. Washington offensive lineman Denver Kirkland (6-5, 335) and Egg Harbor City (NJ) Cedar Creek quarterback Damon Mitchell (6-3, 205).

Kirkland is set to announce between Arkansas, Florida State and Miami on ESPN between 8-9 a.m. CST.

Mitchell will sign Wednesday afternoon at 12:45 p.m. CST between Arkansas, Rutgers and Georgia Tech.

Arkansas has already enrolled the five aforementioned junior college mid-term signees.
