Arkansas is set to host several top recruits for unofficial visits tonight in addition to the four official visitors.

Broken Arrow (Okla.) Class of 2020 defensive back Myles Slusher will be back in Fayetteville again. The talented Slusher has made numerous trips to Arkansas. 

Coming with Slusher is Tulsa (Okla.) Edison Class of 2020 running back Sevion Morrison and Tulsa Booker T. Washington 2020 wide receiver JJ Hester. Slusher and Hester hold Arkansas offers and it’s likely in time that Morrison will get one as well. Morris and Edison saw its season end on Friday night with a 34-7 loss to Claremore. Prior to that game, Morrison had rushed 211 times for 2,639 yards and 34 touchdowns while catching seven passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. 

On Friday night, Haynesville (La.) Class of 2020 defensive tackle CamRon Jackson announced he would be in Fayetteville as well for this game. He is one of the top defensive tackles in the nation.

Arkansas will also get an unofficlal visit from  Putnam City (Okla.) defensive lineman Collin Clay. He’s committed to the Razorbacks.

The Hogs are hosting a couple of kickers among the unofficial visitors. Lexington (Tenn.) 2021 kicker Connor Wood and Tulsa (Okla.) Union 2019 kicker Noah Rauschenberg will be in attendance.

Rauschenberg also tweeted about the visit and like Slusher he has made many trips to Fayetteville.

Arkansas will also host Madison-Ridgeland (Miss.) 2020 athlete Joe Perkins for the game. In the regular season, Perkins had three interceptions, 42 tackles, including three tackles for loss, four pass breakups, one forced fumble and a recovered one on defense. On offense, Perkins caught 23 passes for 410 Yards and four touchdowns while averaging 17.8 Yards per catch.

Among the other commitments than Clay who will be on unofficial visits are Pulaski Academy tight end Hudson Henry, Sardis (Miss.) North Panola quarterback KJ Jefferson, Tyler (Texas) Robert E. Lee offensive lineman Beaux Limmer, Warren’s pair of wide receiver Treylon Burks and defensive tackle Marcus Miller as well as the Mansfield (Texas) Legacy pair of defensive linemen Enoch Jackson and Taurean Carter. 

Hayti (Mo.) running back Ivory Winters will be in attendance as well. The 2019 prospect is committed to Indiana, but holds an offer to the Hogs. 

Bryant 2020 outside linebacker Catrell Wallace and Glen Rose 2020 kicker Colby Steed are others from inside the state slated to be at Arkansas this weekend. Wallace was offered following the Vanderbilt game. 

There’s a long list of talented underclassmen from Texas, Tennessee and other state who will be in at the game as well.

The four official visitors are Dodge City (Kan.) linebacker Lakia Henry, Harvey (La.) West Jefferson cornerback Gregory Brooks Jr., New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr defensive back Devin Bush and Rison cornerback Malik Chavis, who is committed to the Hogs. Henry is committed to Tennessee while Brooks has a pledge to Mississippi State. 

Arkansas is the leader for Bush and has excellent shots at Henry and Brooks.
