In just his second signing day as head coach at Arkansas, Bret Bielema is making it well known what he is looking for.
National Signing Day was littered with offensive and defensive lineman prospects for the Razorbacks.
Offensive linemen Brian Wallace (St. Louis), Jovan Pruitt (Dallas) and Frank Ragnow (Chanhassen, Minn.) all received offers from the top schools in the country. All three signed with Arkansas Wednesday morning.
The 2014 class is littered with players from various parts of the country as well as five players from the state of Arkansas.
Springdale Har-Ber’s Jake Hall, Bentonville’s Jack Kraus, Dollarway’s Josh Liddell, North Little Rock’s Juan Day and El Dorado’s Bijhon Jackson each decided to stay close to home to play for the Razorbacks.
Jackson was rated as the state’s top recruit and led El Dorado to the 6A title. Kraus helped guide Bentonville to the 7A championship.
Jared Cornelius, Cody Hollister, Chris Murphy and Rafe Peavey each enrolled at the start of the spring semester.
Arkansas did miss out on some big national prospects. Highly touted defensive end Solomon Thomas from Coppell, Tex. chose Stanford over the Hogs and UCLA on national television.
