Arkansas Hits Dutchtown Daily Double

Arkansas is now up to 12 pledges in its 2014 recruiting class with two of the four committing so far on Saturday being Geismar (La.) Dutchtown wide receivers Torrance Mosley (5-10, 175, 4.4) and Corey McBride (6-2, 180, 4.34) - who both pledged to the Razorbacks after working out at their elite camp on Saturday.

The Razorbacks hit the Dutchtown Daily Double on Saturday.

Arkansas got a pair of commitments Saturday from Geismar (La.) Dutchtown wide recievers Torrance Mosley (5-10, 175, 4.4) and Corey McBride (6-2, 180, 4.34) after the duo participated in the Razorbacks' Elite Camp earlier in the day.

Mosley – who could also play cornerback - had offers from Arkansas, Arizona State, Western Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, Tulane, Memphis and Southern while McBride chose Arkansas over Utah, San Diego State, Memphis, Houston, Tulane and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Mosley played running back as a junior for Dutchtown while rushing 102 times for 912 yards and 11 touchdowns while also catching 16 passes for 263 yards and two more scores.

"It was pretty cool up here," Mosley said. "I liked the facilities and everything and the school is just awesome. I have never seen anything like it. We don't have anything like this is Louisiana. It's just different. It feels like a whole new world."

McBride, who has been getting interest from Florida, LSU and Michigan, caught 21 passes for 357 yards with eight touchdowns, last season.

He noted that Arkansas is very strong in his major, which will be architecture.

"It is just very different," McBride said. "Actually they are number two in drafting and architecture and that is something that I take very, very serious. I am looking forward to studying here and playing here. Like Torrance said, it is a whole new world out here coming from Louisiana with all these mountains and beautiful scenery."

The very personable McBride noted his strengths with a smile.

"Right now I think it is rounding off my routes and using my speed to make people feel bad about themselves," McBride said.

Both wideouts loved working with Arkansas wide receiver coach Michael Smith.

"He is so much fun and just a funny guy," McBride said. "I love the coaching staff here. They are amazing."
