Arkansas has two commits at this position and is likely to add one more between now and February.
|Jordan committed to the Hogs in September|
Jervenski Johnson Amite (La.) was unknown before he attended the Hogs’ camp in June, but after running a few routes for offensive coordinator Paul Petrino, the 6-4, 190-pounder had earned a scholarship offer that he would commit to a few hours later. Johnson took an unofficial visit to LSU on Saturday but said the Tigers don’t appear to be ready to offer. He said even if they do, he’s solid to Arkansas. Johnson chose the Hogs over an offer from UAB.
The Razorbacks also have Frisco (Texas) Centennial speedster Lamar Jordan, 5-11, 182, 4.38, in the fold. Jordan plays quarterback for Centennial and has piled up 2,278 yards and 29 touchdowns so far this season for the 9-1 Titans. Arkansas plans to use him as a wide receiver. His sister also attended the U of A.
Arkansas’ current staff is in very good shape to land Frankfort (Ky.) Franklin County receiver Ryan Timmons, who made an official trip to Fayetteville for the Rutgers game in September. The 5-11, 180-pounder has 4.4 speed and holds offers from Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Purdue, West Virginia and several others. Ohio State is also very much in the mix but the Buckeyes haven’t extended an offer. Another one to keep in mind is Arkansas State commit Drew Morgan of Greenwood (Ark.). The next head coach may do what Bobby Petrino did with Tyler Wilson in 2008 and decide to extend a late offer to Greenwood’s star performer.
The Razorbacks may choose to bring in another junior college receiver in this year’s class to help ease the sting of losing All-SEC performer Cobi Hamilton. The Hogs brought in a total of five players at this position in 2012.
