FAYETTEVILLE (AP) — University of Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema has awarded scholarships to two in-state football players.

Bielema said Thursday that defensive end Jake Hall and fullback Tyler Colquitt have been placed on scholarship beginning in the second summer session.

Hall is a native of Springdale and helped Har-Ber High School to the quarterfinals of the 7A state playoffs in 2013.

Colquitt played linebacker and running back at Pulaski Academy where he averaged nearly 9.5 yards per carry and scored seven touchdowns in 2013.
