Arkansas picked up its 10th commitment for the 2015 class when Rawleigh Williams III flipped from Ole Miss to the Razorbacks Saturday.
The three-star running back from Dallas was blown away when he visited Fayetteville Wednesday.
"When I visited, (Arkansas) stood out in every aspect," Williams said. "It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up."
He is the first running back in head coach Bret Bielema's 2015 recruiting class, but he could potentially share a backfield with Alex Collins, Jonathan Williams and Korliss Marshall when he arrives on campus in a year.
"I see myself fitting in very well," Williams said. "I'll take a lot of mental reps and my name will be called eventually. I just need to take advantage of it."
As a junior at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas, Williams had 767 yards and seven touchdowns on 143 carries. He also caught 26 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown.
Williams also had offers from Duke and North Texas, as well as interest from Baylor, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas and Texas A&M.
He is the Razorbacks' seventh recruit from Texas since Bielema became the head coach and the second in the class of 2015, after four-star center Zach Rogers.
