Saturday visit updates
Arkansas target Jozie Milton.
Defensive lineman Jozie Milton, 6-3, 295 of Clinton, La. said he loved his visit to Arkansas today. He and about five others visited the Hogs today.
He tweeted he had a great conversation with Coach Bret Bielema. More later.
Offensive lineman Cameron Davis, 6-4, 264 of Bryant said he learned a few tips from strength and conditioning coach Ben Herbert. He said Bielema likes him and wants to get him up for camp this summer and earn an offer. Very impressed with the football complex.
He said the visit was very organized and detailed. His father, Isaac, who played for the Hogs in the 90's, was surprised how Arkansas has changed since his playing days.
Definitely likes the Hogs.
Some of the prospects are heading home and some are attending Arkansas' baseball game.
Milton said he enjoyed the 1-on-1 time with the coaches. He called defensive line coach Rory Segrest a cool and great guy. He said Segrest would want him to play the one or two technique.
He said Bielema was extremely funny. He talked about having a circle of trust. He said Bielema doesn't expect to be in circle of trust just yet but wants to develop the trust.
He said he's very high on Arkansas after the visit.
Offensive lineman Derek Brown of Katy, Texas and his mother loved the visit. He liked how Arkansas only invited a small number of prospects and that gave him and the others more time with the coaches.
Offensive line coach Sam Pittman impressed he and his mother by saying he wants guys that want to major in engineering and play football. Pittman doesn't want players that drop a major because it's too difficult. Brown plans to make in petroleum engineering.
