Arkansas linebacker target Bryant Pirtle Jr. has SEC speed, and it appears the Hogs will get an official visit from the junior college prospect.

Pirtle, 6-4, 235 pounds, of Pima Community College in Arizona, has about 25 offers from schools such as Arkansas, Texas A&M, Arizona, Utah, Louisville, Arizona State and Houston. He said it was "very likely" that the Razorbacks would get an official visit.

He said he hasn't been timed in the 40-yard dash since he was a junior at DeSales High School in Louisville, Ky., when he recorded 4.52 seconds.

"But I'm faster," Pirtle said.

Pirtle has recorded 36 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 3 tackles for loss in four games this season. He had 29 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 4 tackles for loss in eight games as a freshman.
