National signing day turned out to be successful for the Arkansas Razorbacks and attention now turns to the 2022 class.
Having a boring signing day is what most coaches like. Having a drama free signing day is exactly what Sam Pittman and his staff accomplished with the Arkansas Razorbacks on Wednesday. The Razorbacks were able to add some talent to the offensive line and find several skill position players that will have an impact on Saturdays. We will take examine a few of the players that are going to be expected to make an impact for the Hogs.
Running back AJ Green out of Tulsa Union High School is going to be the player that fans want to look at first. Green has excellent speed that will transition well to SEC play. He has shown that he has excellent burst, and he is rarely brought down by the first defender. The Razorbacks are going to find it difficult to keep him off the field as a freshman. I expect Green to see the field early in the 2021 season.
Meanwhile, when you look at the wide receiver position, Arkansas was able land Ketron Jackson out of Royse City, TX. Jackson does a great job of being able to high point the football. Jackson has impressive speed and is someone that is a threat to score from all over the field. He will need to become a little more consistent with his route running. However, Jackson has the makings of being able to terrorize opposing defenses for several years to come.
The offensive line is an area where the coaches have wanted to add some depth and strengthen the numbers. Arkansas was able to land four players that will beef up the size along the offensive line. Cole Carson, Terry Wells, Cameron Ball, Devon Manuel are all offensive linemen well over 6-4. All four may see some playing time next season as the offensive line is unit where improvement is needed. The bottom line is on the offensive side of the ball it was a good signing day for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
