Arkansas received the last official visit from offensive lineman Denver Kirkland (6-foot-5, 320 pounds) of Miami Washington and today the Hogs landed the highly-recruited prospect.

He's rated a four-star recruit by national recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network. He chose the Hogs over Ole Miss, Florida State, South Florida and Miami.
