Arkansas’ style of putting a class together has been impressive.
1) Get No. 1 player from in state (Ty Storey). Check.
2) Get incredibly talented foreign exchange student from Scandinavia (Hjalte Froholdt). Um, check.

4) Get four-star lineman from Texas (Zach Rogers). Check.

“It’s definitely a great start, and we’re hoping it won’t slow down any time soon, and we’re working on guys,” quarterback Ty Storey told Saturday Down South. “I’m the quarterback and I’m trying to be the leader.”
