The Arkansas elite prospect camp today is expected to draw several impressive athletes and will kick off a busy camp season this month. Registeration is from 10 to 11. The camp starts shortly after registeration.

Some of the prospects expected to take part include:

2019 DE Cole Mashburn- Norman,(Okla.) North- Offers from Iowa State, Memphis

2018 S-LB Anthony Goodlow -Del City, Okla.

DL Billy Ferrell- Fordyce

2019 WR Jameson Williams- Cardinal Ritter in St. Louis- Has offers from Minnesota, Michigan State, Kentucky, Wisconsin and others.

2019 RB-LB Jax Dineen- Lawrence, Kansas.- Kansas offer


DB Tanner McCalister-Rockwall, (Texas) Rockwall-Heath- He said Friday's visit went well and he's looking forward visiting more today.

OL Jalynn Strickland- Waycross (Ga.) Ware County plans to tour Fayetteville and the surrounding area today before heading back home.

LB commit Bumper Pool-Lucas, (Texas) Lovejoy

Updates will be posted thoughout the day:

9:37 update

RD- There will about 150 prospects at the camp.

9:49 update

RD-2018 OL Nigel Brannon, 6-5, 340 is here. He has a TCU offer along with a few others. He camped at TCU Friday.

RD- 10:01 update

Hog TE commit Luke Ford is here. He feels better and made the trip.

DD-10:09 update

The current Razorbacks were working out and a few early arrivals got a chance to see them workout by flipping tractor tires, something I used to do on our farm, but it wasn't for conditioning.

RD- 10:18 update

Athlete Sean Michael Flanagan of Charleston weighed in at 190. Very good looking athlete that could play WR or DB. He's a good candidate to earn an offer.

2019 WR Jadon Jackson of Bentonville weighed in at 165. He has an Arkansas offer and is one of the fastest prospects in the state.


DL Billy Ferrell of Fordyce weighed 327. He's another that has a good chance of earning an offer.

RD-10:41 update

Billy Ferrell measured 6-2 1/8 barefooted.

As Dudley noted, the Razorbacks are working out before the camp. Hjalte Froholdt is a flat belly at 315-320. He looks incredible. It's fun to watch these guys change their bodies over the few years they're on campus.

Frank Ragnow has the look of a fifth year senior even though he played as a true freshman.


Texarkana, Texas has several nice athletes here. If I was to award the pass the look test it's 2018 DE Leonard Parks, 6-4 1/8, 229. He has offers from La-Monroe, Missouri State and others. I received an email about him awhile to keep an eye on him.

2018 WR Tevailanci Hunt,5-11, 178 has offers 14 or so offers, including Iowa State, Tulsa, Memphis, A-State. He's well put together with huge biceps for a guy his size.

2019 QB Coltin Clack has offers from SMU and FAU.

Former Hog RB Kyle Dickerson is an assistant coach at the school.

DD- 11:15

One of the better looking athletes here is 2018 Muskogee tight end-defensive end Mike Edwards.

RD- 11:29

DB LaDarrius Bishop of Ashdown and Luke Ford will be working out at the camp.

Bishop arrived around 1:30 Friday for the two day visit.

DD - 11:35

Another prospect that we'll be watching today is Oklahoma City, Okla., Del City safety-OLB Anthony Goodlow (6-5, 225). Another one that looks the part.

Tulsa Union LB Tre Thompson (6-2, 210) played with current Razorback freshman linebacker Kyrei Fisher last season and is a 2019 prospect.

DD - 12:10

The campers are now running the 40-yard dash. Some early highlights include Bentonville West junior WR Jaden Jackson - one of four in-state 2019 prospects with an Arkansas offer - running a 4.42 and 4.44 times.

Fordyce linemen Billy Ferrell - who measured at 6-2, 327 - ran 5.09 and 5.15.

Broken Arrow junior linebacker Zach Marcheselli (6-2, 200) - put down a 4.40 and a 4.51.

Springdale Har-Ber senior cornerback Blaze Brothers (5-8, 175) had a 4.48 and a 4.45.

DD - 12:40

Pocahontas junior WR Devon Adams turned heads with a 4.39 40-yard dash as did fellow 2019 prospect Kyren Batey of Foreman, who had a 4.40.

The campers are now headed outside for individual match-ups with a break for lunch set for 1:45 p.m.

RD- 12:55

RB Jeremy Gibson is having a great visit. Again, expect him to be a Hog.

RD- 1:01

Highly recruited 2019 S Brian Williams and parents are here.

RD- 2;09

They broke for lunch from 1:45 to 2:45. They'll practice until about 4.

2018 Charleston athlete Sean Michael Flanagan recorded a 4.5 time in the 40. I think I heard a 4.52, but not 100%. He's not disappointing and is setting himself to be in strong contention for an offer.

I've been to The Opening at Nike Headquarters the last 5-6 years and Hog TE commit Luke Ford looks as good as any of the TEs I've seen in the past. He looks even better than I expected.

2018 DE Leonard Parks, 6-4 1/8, 229 of Texarkana ran a 4.7.

RD -3:37

Hearing Flanagan has done everything he needs to do to get an offer. I expect him to get one after the camp. I expect him to commit very soon after getting the offer.


RB Jeremy Gibson said Arkansas is still his top school, but his mother wants him to visit other schools before making a decision. He mentioned Arizona State, Missouri and others as places he'll visit.

I don't expect any other offers to go out other than the one to Flanigan.
