- TE Brandon Frazier (6’7 240), McKinney, TX
Dual sport high school athlete. He has the skills to be a solid forward as well.
Arkansas is likely to take another tight end due to three tight ends departing after the 2019 season. This his class already had another tight end with Horace who is committed last month.
This was Frazier’s fifth trip to Fayetteville so that has to bode well for the Hogs.
Frazier is very athletic, tall and has a quality build to him. He displays solid hands similar to Hunter Henry. Also, Frazier is a crisp route runner, blocks well and seems to have a high football IQ. I would look for him to be the guy that closes out the tight end class.
Baylor, Texas Tech, Colorado and Iowa State seem to be in the race to gain his services. Although I believe Arkansas leads for this one
2. WR Savion Williams (6’4 200)-Marshall, TX.
Arkansas is most likely the leader right now. Arkansas hopes to be in on this receiver early with his recruitment likely to blow up this summer. Williams has blazing speed for a guy as big as he is. He could provide a height disadvantage, jumps well and is a great student. If I could compare him to former Hog it would be Dominique Reed.WR Ja’Lynn Polk (6’2 185)- Lufkin, TX
This receiver is one of the more under rated ones in the class. In one of the Nike Opening’s he demonstrated his ability to create separation with outstanding route running with shifty cuts and a quick break of the line of scrimmage. Polk did these things against defensive backs who higher in the rankings than he is. Do not let the composite 3-star rating fool you, Polk will be a player and a solid one at that. 247sports has him with a 91 score and four star although other sites have him rated lower which affects his overall composite score. He is ranked the 211th overall player in the nation, 39th best receiver and 36th ranked player in Texas.
4A. LB Martavius French (6’1 225)- Memphis
4B. LB Bryson Eason (6’2 230)- Memphis
Both players are standout, Power-5 linebackers out of Whitehaven High School. Razorbacks head coach, Chad Morris, was the first one to reach out last year to both these men when NCAA allows coaches to begin the contact period with juniors.
As I have mentioned before, both of these men have visited Arkansas multiple times and are all but shoe-ins to be Razorbacks for the 2020 class.
5. S Jerrin Thompson (6’1 183) Lufkin, TX
Look here, Arkansas is recruiting the state of Texas very heavily and it may payoff with the commitment of Thompson. The Lufkin standout has Arkansas in his top school list and with Texas as the only school I see being a challenge here, I can feel safe about him being a Razorback. Thompson is another player that other sites have with a lower rating. With 247sports, he is 142nd overall player in the country, the 11th ranked safety and the 25th rated player in the Lonestar state.
In one of our previous interviews, Thompson has stated he likes his practices are laid out, the energy the staff and players bring, the stadium.
He will be a December graduate with the opportunity to join the team in the spring of 2020. Thompson will announce his decision before the season on July 9th. TCU and LSU are his other two favorites. Fans can consider Thompson an Arkansas lean.
Two other possibilities:
- Blayne Toll (6’5 244) Hazen
It is very much a possibility the Hogs lose another the state’s top player to Oklahoma for the second straight season.
Toll is a good kid who seems to be enjoying the recruiting process like any other normal player. He has a lot of family who are Hog fans, his hometown definitely seems to want him to be a Hog and the whole state wants him to be one as well. He would be a very talented defensive end and could help provide the Razorbacks develop the depth to be one of the best defensive lines in the SEC.
Although, I am being selfish here, I think Toll becomes a Razorback at the end of the days fingers are tied.
- LB Catrell Wallace (6’6 218) Bryant
Wallace is another defensive player in the state of Arkansas. The Hogs seem to be the Power-5 school that wants him the most. The long, rangy athlete could become a stud under the Chavis led defense.
I believe Wallace could be a guy that will pull the trigger this summer and help the dam break to lead Arkansas to another strong summer when it comes to recruiting.
