Fayetteville, Arkansas – Sam Pittman and the Razorback coaching staff are beginning to identify potential recruits for the 2025 class. Arkansas presently has commitments from three juniors: quarterback Grayson Wilson, running back Jamarion Parker, and kicker Evan Noel.

Lance Jackson, one of Arkansas’ top targets, said on Sunday that he had committed to Texas after a weekend visit. Of course, the Texarkana, Texas native is the brother of Arkansas’ current outstanding edge rusher, Landon Jackson.

Arkansas is still considering pursuing two quarterbacks. Wilson, on the other hand, has already established himself as the recruits’ go-to person. Quarterbacks are typically the vocal leaders of a class, and the Mustangs’ standout quarterback certainly fits this description. He grew two inches during the course of the football season and now stands at 6-foot-4, which is roughly the stature that current offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino prefers in his quarterbacks.

Based on recent experience, Pittman’s staff has a reputation for taking two running backs per class. But Arkansas might lose one before signing day. Getting a commitment from 4-star Parker was a significant lift ahead of the season. The Razorbacks made Elston an offer a few weeks ago. He has outstanding game-breaking speed.

Once Petrino and new receivers coach Ronnie Fouch devise an offensive strategy, this position group may look very different. Big-bodied receivers could still be used, and the Razorbacks have a strong tandem in 4-star Kelshaun Johnson and Dylan Robinson. Both are 6-foot-plus and have lots of speed.

Johnson visited Texas last weekend and received an offer from Arkansas this week. Robinson earned an offer from the Razorbacks on Thursday, following a school visit by Arkansas defensive coordinator Travis Williams.

Both are good regional prospects, but with Luke Hasz and Ty Washington returning, recruiting at the position has been fairly quiet. Former North Texas transfer Var’Keyes Gumms and Shamar Easter play tight end, which has good depth. During this early stage, Arkansas signed Andreas Plaaske. Although his stats don’t stand out, he is a good run blocker, which is what he will be brought in to do.
