North Little Rock receiver K.J. Hill will catch passes from Hog quarterback commit Ty Storey this evening and on Monday. He and Will Gragg will be in town until Tuesday.
They hung out with Arkansas running back Juan Day and defensive lineman Bijhon Jackson. Hearing Day has gained six pounds and is weighing 212 and Jackson has lost about 16 pounds since arriving at Arkansas.
A name to remember is sophomore defensive lineman Lake Tucker of El Dorado. Very impressive looking athlete that moves very well. Looks to be in the 6-2, 240 range. Could be the next big thing to come out of the Wildcat program.
Dardanelle LB Parker Witt ran 4.65 in the 40.
Juan Day's brother Alex, who will be a sophomore running back at North Little Rock ran 4.68 in the 40.
Running back Charles West and tight end Scott Huntsman of Coppell, Texas will take part in the camp on Monday. West has several offers while Huntsman claims an offer from Purdue, La.-Monroe and New Mexico.
Cornerback William Lockett and junior receiver Sean Dykes of Manvel, Texas arrived in Fayetteville about 10:30 this morning. Lockett will work out on Monday in hopes of adding an offer from the Hogs.
Dykes won't participate in the camp because of a broken foot he suffered in a 7-on-7 event in the spring.
White Hall defensive end-tight end Daniel Sprinkle arrived about 3:45 today and will work out tonight. He'll also be at the camp Monday and Tuesday. He was in Florida at a Perfect Game event where he pitched and hit 90 MPH on the radar guy.
Coppell, Texas running backs coach Daniel Foster brought RB Charles West, OL Jordan Murray, FB Parker Wilson and junior running back Brandon Rice.
Murray is 6-9, 340 and has offers from Arkansas State and North Texas. He'll take part in the camp tomorrow. Video CLICK HERE
West has more than 10 offers and hopes to earn one from the Hogs with a good showing at the camp. Video CLICK HERE
2016 TE Austin McNeely, 6-4, 240, 4.90 of Pottsville is a very good looking athlete who moves well. Video CLICK HERE
As stated in an April 9th story, White Hall TE-DE is the best player in the state without an Arkansas offer. Wouldn't be a big shock if he left the camp with an offer. He worked at TE this evening and looked very good. He'll work at DE tomorrow.
Hog QB commit TY Storey threw to Will Gragg and K.J. Hill in the evening session. Hill looks and plays the part of a highly recruited receiver.
2017 QB Taylor Powell of Fayetteville is one to watch the next few years. He shows good accuracy and arm strength. He's around 6 foot tall but should grow more. His father is 6-4.
Liked 2016 QB Andre Sale of LR Catholic before the camp and like him even more after seeing him today. Has good size now and will only get bigger in the next two years. Former Hog Clint Stoerner works with Sale and he thinks highly of him.
There were about 250 athletes taking part in today's camp.
As of now, it looks like Thursday's camp will have about 60 to 70 athletes.
Cornerback William Lockett and junior receiver Sean Dykes of Manvel, Texas took a tour of the facilities and were very impressed.
Lockett, who has 15 offers, will be trying to earn an offer from the Hogs when he works out tomorrow. He has visited Auburn, Clemson, Louisville, Kentucky, Baylor and Oklahoma and he said Arkansas' facilities are some of the best he's seen. Should he get an offer from the Hogs, he said they'll be one of his top schools.
Dykes was equally impressed with the facilities. He was able to meet receivers coach Michael Smith and was impressed.
Offensive lineman Evan Applegate, who visited Arkansas on Saturday and received an offer, said the facilities and academic support were top-notch. He said he has offers from the Big 12 and Big 10 but to get one from the SEC is big to him. He's looking to make a return visit in late July or early August.
Applegate, 6-7, 285, 5.1 seconds in the 40 yard dash, of Shawnee, (Kan.) Mill Valley also has offers from Oklahoma State, Minnesota, Kansas State and other
