Arkansas is looking to maintain a top 25 class for the second year in a row under Bret Bielema. In order to do so, the Arkansas staff will have to be aggressive with some uncommitted prospects but also work hard to keep their class intact.

Here’s a review of Arkansas’ signing class heading into the first recruiting weekend after the bowl season and a few predictions on where the Razorbacks could end up in February. We use 247Sports composite team and player rankings:


National Recruiting Rank: 25
SEC Recruiting Rank: 9
Number of commits or signees: 16


Terrance Malone, OG, Northwest Mississippi College (three star, JUCO)


McTelvin Agim, DE, Hope, Ark. (four star)
Devwah Whaley, RB, Beaumont, Texas (four star)
Austin Capps, DT, Star City, Ark. (four star)
T.J. Hammonds, ATH, Little Rock, Ark. (four star)


Kristian Fulton, CB, Metairie, La. (four star) (1/22 official visit)
Kyle Porter, RB, Katy, Texas (four star) (1/29 official visit)
Justin Crawford, RB, Northwest Mississippi College (three star, JUCO)
Allen Cater, DE, Kennesaw, Ga. (three star) (12/4 official visit)


Arkansas’ most immediate concern will come with Whaley’s official visit to Texas this weekend. Whaley, who committed to the Razorbacks at the Under Armour All-America Game, is a possibility for a weekend flip to the Longhorns. With Porter coming in for an official and Crawford on the radar, Arkansas will fill the holes at running back one way or another. Fulton would be an amazing get but he appears more likely to stay in-state and sign with LSU.
