Arkansas defensive end commitment Hjalte Forholdt said he's hoping to visit Arkansas in July.

He plans to leave Denmark in late June and arrive in Bradenton, Florida to enroll in IMG Academy.

He said he communicates with Coach Bret Bielema and defensive line coach Rory Segrest by direct messaging on Twitter.

Froholdt said he's around 290 but expects to lose some weight and add more muscle after he starts working out with the strength and conditioning coach at IMG.

He said he's been talking to former Warren, (Ohio) Harding teammate and offensive lineman James Daniel about Arkansas.

He plans to take his official visit during the season.

Highly recruited offensive lineman Josh Wariboko of Oklahoma City Casady High School said Arkansas offensive line coach Sam Pittman visited the school Wednesday.
