Arkansas will host unofficial visitors again this on Saturday as the team holds a scrimmage in Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The spring game is slated for April 6 at 3 p.m. and will also see a large number of recruits in attendance. Arkansas has three public commitments for the Class of 2020.
Here’s a closer look at three recruits from the Class of 2020 scheduled to be at Arkansas on Saturday.
Isaiah Jacobs, RB, 5-10, 193, Owasso (Okla.)
As a junior, Jacobs rushed for 1,024 yards and 17 touchdowns on 119 carries while also catching 23 passes for 373 yards and five touchdowns. What is interesting about Jacobs is this will be his third Prospect Day visit to Arkansas since they started in late January. He was at Arkansas on Jan. 26 and then March 9. He was offered at the Jan. 26 visit. He is the younger brother of former Alabama running back Josh Jacobs who may be the first running back taken in the 2019 NFL Draft. Jacobs is talented and has a lot of offers, but it appears the Hogs have the inside track.
Catrell Wallace, OLB, 6-6, 215, Bryant
One of the top recruits in Arkansas in any classification. Helped lead Bryant to a state championship in Arkansas’ largest classification. The Razorbacks were his first offer. As a junior, Wallace finished with 79 tackles, two sacks and three blocked kicks. He is also standout on the basketball court. He was going to be at the Elite Prospect Day on March 9, but had to reschedule for this weekend. Would be an upset if he went anywhere but Arkansas.
Dillon Johnson, RB, 6-1, 180, Greenville (Miss.) St. Joseph
One of the top recruits in Mississippi in 2020. He announced Monday on Twitter he would be at Arkansas this weekend.
Johnson holds offers to Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Memphis, Arkansas State, Tennessee-Martin, Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech and Louisiana Lafayette and Austin Peay. As a junior, he rushed for 1,665 yards, passed for 957 and 32 touchdowns. On defense, he finished with 126 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.
Top 10 for Tulsa Booker T. Washington WR JJ Hester
Tulsa (Okla.) Booker T. Washington 2020 wide receiver JJ Hester released his Top 10 schools on Monday. They are as follows.
It was a mild surprise that neither Oklahoma or Oklahoma State made his list of 10 schools. The 10 were Arkansas, Colorado, Ohio State, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, Ole Miss and Texas.
