Otis' Wednesday Arkansas Razorback Recruiting Chatter

Arkansas will host an impressive list of recruits on Saturday. The Hogs have offered several of the offers previously.

Arkansas has enjoyed near perfect weather this spring, but Saturday is a day when basically everyone is holding their breath the early weather reports are wrong. Possibility of heavy is being forecast, but the spring game is still 72 hours away so the weather has a way of changing in that period of time.

The Razorbacks are putting together a pretty strong list of visitors. One of the headliners who will spend the weekend in Fayetteville is Independence (Kan.) Community College 3-star defensive tackle Emmit Gooden. He's good friends with McTelvin Agim and is anxious to see him.

Gooden holds a long list of offers from several schools including such as Alabama, Georgia, USC and others. The Hogs are searching for an older defensive lineman in this class and Gooden fits that need completely.

Earle (Ark.) 3-star quarterback Gerry Bohanon holds eight SEC offers including Arkansas as well as many from other conferences. He will be in attendance. Auburn, Ole Miss, Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Georgia and LSU are among the others trying to land this specimen.

In addition to Bohanon, some other in-state 2018 recruits expected to be in Fayetteville are Charleston athlete Sean Michael-Flanagan, Springdale defensive end Isaiah Nichols and Lake Hamilton offensive lineman Will Burgess. Those three have all been to Arkansas previously this spring and are still hoping to get an offer from the Hogs.

A couple of in-state Class of 2019 prospects who hold Arkansas offers are also attending the game. Pulaski Academy 4-star tight end Hudson Henry and Warren 4-star wide receiver Treylon Burks will be in attendance.

In addition to Gooden, among the out-of-state Class of 2018 prospects expected to be in attendance are North Richland Hills (Texas) linebacker DaShaun White, Midwest City (Okla.) defensive end Jalen Redmond and the Shreveport (La.) Evangel pair of cornerback ArDarius Washington and linebacker Michael Baskerville. Washington and Baskerville are both committed to LSU and are making their second visits to Fayetteville this spring.

A couple of very talented out-of-state 5-stars with Arkansas offers are also coming. Dallas (Texas) Bishop Dunne safety Brian Williams and Collinsville (Okla.) tight end Grayson Boomer will visit. Williams is the younger brother of Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams III and Boomer will be in Fayetteville for the second time this spring.
