Rowser, 6-1, 185, announced his decision on Sunday morning and becomes the eighth pledge for the Hogs in the Class of 2022. He talked to Hogville.net and Pig Trail Nation about why he chose the Hogs.

“Arkansas’ coaches recruited me as a person not just a player,” Rowser said. “They didn’t just speak on what I’m great at but what I need to be better. My best fit is the SEC and once I narrowed it down I knew the school where I needed to be.”
