The uniforms appear to be part of the NIKE Hyper Elite series worn by several teams. The white home jerseys have "RAZORBACKS" written across the chest, while the red and black road jerseys have "ARKANSAS" on the front. The white and black jerseys have red trim, and the red jersey has white trim.
The Hyper Elite jerseys have "Sweatback" patterns with the Razorbacks logo below the numerals. A Razorbacks logo is also on the team's shorts. The fonts used for the team name, player name and numerals appear sharper than in years past.
Arkansas will officially debut the uniforms Friday night with a home exhibition against Missouri Southern at Bud Walton Arena.
