State of the class: Arkansas filling key needs

NEW: Follow on facebook -

It was glaringly obvious that Arkansas needed to help itself at the defensive tackle spot in this recruiting class. The Razorbacks had only signed three true DTs in the past three classes, and the supply will run out very soon.

They’ve done a good job with the position already. Bijhon Jackson is the best prep player in the state of Arkansas, regardless of position–and he’s an elite defensive tackle. He is on board, as is Missouri product Armon Watts–who is slightly underrated at the DT spot. Watts is considered a top 10 player in Missouri in the 247Sports.com composite ranking.

Quarterback is another position that needed some depth. The program gets it with 2014 signal caller Rafe Peavey and 2015 player Ty Storey. Both are highly regarded in their classes.

Torrance Mosley, an athlete out of Louisiana, is convinced this class is going to be the tide turner under head coach Bret Bielema. Even though it only has 16 members so far, he sees the potential.

“Coach Bielema is a very cool guy, and also the coaching staff he has will get us prepared to be the best we can be,” Mosley told Saturday Down South.
