Top five O-line prospects from the state of Arkansas since 2008


It’s fun to look back and see which prognostications were correct and which were way off. When it comes to the state of Arkansas, the recruiting rankings haven’t been far off when rating offensive linemen the last few years.

Since 2008, the No. 1 ranked offensive lineman coming out of the state of Arkansas is Brey Cook, who is expected to be one of the Razorbacks’ top offensive linemen coming into the fall. He, Dan Skipper and Denver Kirkland are expected to be the cornerstones of the unit.

Here’s a look at the top O-line recruits that came from the state of Arkansas since ’08.
