When you’ve lost a recruit or two recently, or you just need to add some more depth to the class … south Florida’s not a bad place to go to refill the tank.
And having former Miami head coach Randy Shannon on staff never hurts.
Arkansas did exactly that over the past few days. Now that we’re less than 10 days away from national signing day, the Razorbacks know they need to get a few more kids on board for 2014. Landing a 6-foot-6 wide receiver out Miami’s a nice get, as Kendrick Edwards came aboard from Norland High School. Edwards had been visited by Shannon multiple times, previously and he was just coming off his official visit. The receiver, who is going to be a bit of a project player, looked Rutgers bound before the Razorbacks turned up the recruiting heat.
The other two south Florida pickups are defensive back Randy Ramsey out of Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale and WR/DB Cornelius Floyd out of Gulliver Prep in Miami. Ramsey is 6-foot-4, 210 pounds and will likely play safety. He also was looking hard at Kentucky and N.C. State. Floyd (6-1/190) had also seriously considered Virginia and UCF.
The fourth pickup for the Razorbacks was of the in-state variety, as DB Joshua Liddell out of White Hall (Ark.) came aboard. He also took an official visit to Boise State, recently, and he previously was committed to Arkansas State. He is 6-foot-0, 195 pounds.
