That was a weekend when the Razorbacks brought in 19 recruits - committed and uncommitted - and appear on the verge of landing about all of them.
St. Louis prep running back Ronnie Wingo (6-3, 212, 4.4) and Texas High wideout Cobi Hamilton (6-3, 190, 4.5) - two of those visitors that weekend - both publicly committed to Arkansas on Tuesday afternoon.
"I just think it is the best place for me and the place where the coaches shown me they wanted me the most," Wingo said. "We had a group of guys down there that weekend that just really clicked together and think we can come together with talent they already have and do some great things."
Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino, assistant and recruiting coordinator Tim Horton and assistant Garrick McGee all had been on the U.S. Army All-American hard since he took an unofficial visit this summer.
"I really love that staff and I really love Arkansas," Wingo said. "It is not too far from St. Louis and I just feel that it is where I want to spend the next three, four or five years of my life."
Wingo rushed for 1,482 yards and 14 touchdowns as a senior, giving him 4,499 yards and 48 touchdowns during his record-breaking prep career.
He set 12 single-season or career school records and tied three more.
Wingo has been all but certain he wanted to be at Arkansas for a long period of time, but does admit that he gather the other schools the proper consideration before making an announcement.
He especially gave consideration to the closest school to St. Louis on his list.
"It really came down to Arkansas and Missouri in the end and it was close," Wingo said. "I made my choice from those two schools. It was just Arkansas was the better choice for me in the end."
Hamilton chose Arkansas over co-finalist Texas, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
He had 64 catches for 1,071 yards and 14 touchdowns this past season.
