Scout Takes a Look at Arkansas 2018 Prospects Who Recently Earned 3-Star Upgrades

Scout identifies 2018 prospects in the state of Arkansas who have earned the bump to three-star status during the rankings updates of the past few weeks.


  • Oliver Nasilai, ILB, Springdale (Ark.) Har-Ber -- Nasilai is a hard-hitting, physical inside/middle linebacker prospect with the athleticism to track running plays sideline to sideline. BYU was first to offer this past fall. Schools such as Oklahoma StateArkansas, and Memphis have also shown interest.


  • Jake Hardage, OG, Pocahontas (Ark.) -- Hardage appears to be the state's top interior O-line prospect in 2018. Mississippi State offered Hardage earlier this semester.

  • Luke Jones, OT, Little Rock (Ark.) Pulaski Academy -- yet another offensive lineman, Jones possesses an impressive frame with plenty of room to grow. Virginia, ULM, Texas State, and three Ivy League programs -- Dartmouth, Princeton, and Yale -- have offered Jones.

  • Sean Michael Flanagan, ATH, Charleston (Ark.) -- the versatile Flanagan will get looks on both sides of the ball because he could potentially play receiver or safety at the FBS level. Arkansas State and Massachusetts are his early FBS offers.
