FAYETTEVILLE — The Class of 2022 in Arkansas could be one of the best football crops in recent memory.
The University of Arkansas has already extended eight offers to prospects in that particular class. A comparison is that in 2021 they have five offers out inside the state and two so far in 2023.
But it’s not just the Razorbacks who are going after the talent in 2022. Not only has Arkansas offered eight in 2022, 11 others already hold at least one Power 5 offer. That is an amazing total normally unseen in Arkansas. There’s a few others who currently don’t have a Power 5 offer, but could be knocking on the door for one soon.
What makes this even more incredible is the fact there was no spring evaluation period where recruiters could go watch football practices and no school camps.
Here’s a closer look at the eight who hold offers from Arkansas and who is the competition for each (in no particular order).
James Jointer, RB, 6-0, 201, Little Rock Parkview — Jointer missed much of his sophomore season due to a knee injury that required surgery. That hasn’t prevented him from still pulling in offers. Arkansas first offered Jointer on Jan. 26, 2019. The new staff has since re-offered him on Feb. 1. He also holds offers from Missouri, Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Kansas, North Texas, UTSA, Virginia Tech, Florida State, UAB, Arkansas State, Bowling Green and then Colorado State offered him on Sunday.
Isaiah Sategna, WR, 5-11, 165, Fayetteville — Father is on the track and field staff at Arkansas. The younger Sategna has been offered by Arkansas for both football and track. Football stepped up on March 9 with his first college offer and the track team came through on June 15. He also has offers to Kansas, Baylor, Nebraska, SMU and Memphis for football. The speedster had an outstanding sophomore season catching 36 passes for 700 yards and six touchdowns.
JJ Hollingsworth, DE, 6-4, 250, Greenland — A small-school standout has emerged as one of the best in the state. As a sophomore he played nine games with a broken hand and cast on it. He still had 33 tackles, including 14 solo, two for loss and a sack. The Razorbacks offered on July 13 while Kansas and Akron also have offered.
E’Marion Harris, OL, 6-6, 305, Joe T. Robinson — A talented lineman who plays for both ways for the Class 4A state champions. Will play offense in college. Is son of former Razorback Elliott Harris. Alabama was his first offer when the Tide extended it on June 8, 2018. The Hogs first offered on Jan. 26, 2019, and of course have since re-offered.
