Sunday recruiting updates
Arkansas hosted two prospects on official visits this weekend.
Defensive lineman Breeland Speaks and his parents left early this morning to get ahead of the snow. The visit will unlikely result in the Hogs flipping him from Ole Miss.
Speaks of Jackson, (Ms.) Callaway officially visited LSU, Ole Miss and the Razorbacks.
Fordyce athlete Gary Cross had a good visit and is very humbled by the attention he's receiving from Arkansas. He'll go to junior college and redshirt the first year, play the second and then have three years of eligibility at Arkansas.
He was hosted by defensive back Shaquille Hunter.
The Hogs are waiting to hear the decisions from the following prospects.
Offensive lineman Andrew Mike- Expected to announce on Monday at his school but could be delayed if he's not recovered from the flu. Did not visit Vanderbilt this weekend because of the flu
Receiver Jojo Robinson- The Hogs are looking good here.
Cornerback Lamont Simmons- Sounds like Arkansas or USC.
Defensive end Solomon Thomas- Looks like a Arkansas and Stanford battle
Linebacker Kenny Young-hearing the Hogs' chances are better than expected
Defensive end Demetrius Jackson- Will sign his letter of intent at 8 am central time on Wednesday. Miami or Arkansas.
Arkansas will be working the phones over the next few days talking to the committed guys and recruits they're trying to get on board. They'll also be focusing on the 2015 class.
Final thoughts on how I believe the last few spots will go down, but no guarantees.
Receiver Jojo Robinson- Believe the Hogs will land Jojo.
Cornerback Lamont Simmons- Will go with USC but won't be shocked if he picks the Hogs.
Defensive end Solomon Thomas- Will go with Arkansas.
Offensive lineman Andrew Mike- Not feeling good about Arkansas' chances.
Linebacker Kenny Young-Believed he would end up at UCLA. Will stick with Bruins.
Defensive end Demetrius Jackson- Miami
