Arkansas stand at 21 commitments after running back Alex Collins of South Plantation, Florida pledged to the Hogs last night. What's left? It's pretty much down to quarterback Damon Mitchell, 6-3, 205 pounds, 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash, of Egg Harbor City, (N.J.) Cedar Creek was and offensive lineman Denver Kirkland, 6-5, 320 pounds, of Miami Washington.

As reported this morning on Twitter, offensive lineman Dwayne Johnson of Bellaire, Texas committed to Nebraska.

Offense lineman Kenny Lacy of Phoenix Mtn. Pointe has told people he's going to UCLA. That's not expected to change.

As reported on Sunday and in today's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Mitchell said after his visit to Fayetteville if it was left to him he would attend Arkansas but wanted to go home talk things over with his mother and coach. He will announce his decision on Wednesday.

Kirkland will announce on ESPNU between 8 and 9 am on signing day.

Other options might pop up but nothing solid at this time.
