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 have been sort of up-and-down over the past few years.
One interesting thing to note … current Arkansas QB commitment Ty Storey, part of the class of 2015, would be rated No. 2 in the list below. Also, it’s worthy of mention that in the list below, three of the players transferred and its pretty clear Tyler Wilson is by far the most productive QB in quite some time. If we included 2006 and Mitch Mustain, Wilson obviously would still be considered the most successful Arkansas QB product of the past decade or more.
Here’s a look at the top 9 quarterback recruits that came from the state of Arkansas since 2008.
