Linebacker Jordon Williams, 6-1, 195, 4.59 seconds in the 40 yard dash, of Houston Jersey Village said he spoke with Arkansas defensive backs coach Clay Jennings Wednesday evening. He plans to visit for the Alabama game Oct. 11.
He hasn't decided if it will be an official or unofficial visit. He has more than 10 scholarship offers, including Arkansas, Louisville, Utah, Wake Forest and Iowa State.
Junior quarterback David Moore of Alpharetta, (Ga.) Milton received mail from Arkansas on Wednesday. He said he's trying to make for the Alabama or Georgia game.
Junior defensive lineman Antwuan Jackson of Ellenwood, (Ga.) Cedar Grove received direct messages on Twitter from Coach Bret Bielema, defensive coordinator Robb Smith and defensive line coach Rory Segrest.
He has about 30 offers, including the Hogs. He plans to attend an Arkansas this fall.
Arkansas tight end commitment C.J. O'Grady of Fayetteville reports receiving an invite to the Semper Fi All American game.
Hog offensive line commitment Zach Rogers of Carrollton, (Texas) Hebron graded out at 94% and 15 finishes in last week's game. A finish varies from what one would call a pancake to a cut to an extra effort block downfield.
Coach Bret Bielema and tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. will visit Roland high school to check on tight end commitment Austin Cantrell this morning. Lunney will attend his game tonight.
Everything is pointing towards offensive lineman Josh Allen being on target to enroll at Arkansas in January. Allen originally signed with North Carolina, but admissions would not clear him. He was granted a release by the Tar Heels.
Dumas tight end Will Gragg will attend Arkansas' game against Nicholls State. He has changed his Texas official visit to Oct. 18. He'll attend tonight's North Little Rock- Little Rock Catholic game at War Memorial Stadium.
