Arkansas Razorbacks add top target at tight end

Arkansas has landed its top target at tight end.

Arkansas has added Carterville (Ill.) tight end Luke Ford to its Class of 2018. Ford was at Arkansas on Sunday and Monday for an unofficial visit.

He announced his commitment on Twitter today and also talked to 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong.

"My mind is going crazy," Ford told 247Sports.

Ford has emerged as one of the hottest recruits in the nation in recent weeks. Arkansas offered in January, but Alabama, Georgia, Florida and others came calling with offers as well.

"I had a huge connection with the staff," Ford said. "They call it Tight End U for a reason."

Ford joins Greenwood (Ark.) 4-star quarterback Connor Noland and Lucas (Texas) Lovejoy 4-star linebacker Bumper Pool in the Class of 2018. The Hogs are hoping to land DeSoto (Texas) 4-star athlete BJ Hanspard, who is on campus today, soon as well.
