Darrian Miller, RB (Blue Springs, MO 5-10/190)
Miller was named the Missouri Gatorade Player of the year last season while rushing for nearly 3,000 yards. The versatile back made an early commitment to Kansas but has since opened his recruitment to all suitors. He has already picked up offers from the likes of Iowa and Wisconsin among others. Miller is a consensus four star back and one recruiting site ranks him among the nation's top 80 players.
“Coach Garrick McGee came up to visit during the spring.” Miller said. “He was telling me to remember that it is still early in the process and that things may shake out. Coach McGee was impressed with my size and said I was bigger than what he was expecting.”
Ethan Hutson, OC (Destrehan, LA 6-4/295)
Ideal size to play the center position, Hutson is one player whose recruitment is climbing fast. After a slow start his performance at a Nike Camp in Baton Rouge drew the attention of schools and scouts alike. Since the MVP showing on mid-April, Hutson has drew BCS offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Colorado, and Arizona. His father spent time at Arkansas as an assistant coach and now is on staff at Tulane University. Hutson said the Arkansas coaches have asked him to give them a call on Friday (June 11th). He visited Arkansas during the spring and was impressed.
“The stadium and weight room were very nice.” Hutson said. “The coaches were great. I spoke with Coach Robinson and the offensive line coach (Chris Klenakis) after the scrimmage and they seem like great people and good coaches.”
Wesleigh Foster, CB (Clarksville, AR 5-10/180)
Foster has made know secret about his love for the Razorbacks throughout his recruiting process. First project as a running back or possible wide receiver, during the Arkansas camp this week, Foster showed that cornerback may be in his future. His first experience at the position was successful as he was named the defensive back MVP of the camp, along with winning the fastest man award. Foster is still waiting for his first offer but if that does come from the Hogs, it will likely be the only one he needs.
Keithen English, OG (Dallas, TX 6-4/315)
Despite holding nearly a double digit offer list, including Oklahoma State and Kansas, Keithen English still claims the Razorbacks as his favorite. He's good friends and former teammates with incoming Arkansas freshman Jatashun Beachum. English has visited the Fayetteville campus on multiple occasions and like Foster, a commitment could shortly follow an offer.
Derrick Alexander, DL/LB (Tulsa, OK 6-2/245)
Alexander watched as two of his teammates from Booker T. Washington signed with Arkansas last season, he has hopes of being the next. Alexander is very familiar with Arkansas program, campus, and the way the Razorbacks handle business. He has the ability to play middle linebacker or defensive end, bulking up and moving inside to defensive tackle could also be an option. His versatility makes him an interesting prospect for college coaches. Derrick was at Arkansas’ senior camp this week and believes he may have done enough.
“I think I did really well up there.” Alexander said. “I’m going to be talking with the coaches later in the week to discuss a possible offer. They haven’t said anything for certain but I think they are going to offer me.”
