Arkansas Football Recruiting: 2016 Commits


The list is growing for Bret Bielema and the Arkansas coaching staff as they received 11 commitments for the 2016 class already, including three 4-star and eight 3-star recruits.

The 2015 season isn’t even underway yet, but the coaching staff never stops recruiting. The 2016 class is already shaping up to be much like the top 25 class Arkansas produced in 2015.

The Razorbacks latest commit took to Twitter on the 4th of July, tweeting the following:

According to 247Sports, he said, “I just realized after I went to Oregon that Arkansas was a better fit for me,” Heinrich said. “I was able to spend some time with the players, they’re all cool guys. The whole mentality among the program is, as they say, uncommon. They’re confident, they work hard and more often they not they do what they need to be. They finished strong, they really did.”
