Head Coach Sam Pittman and the Arkansas Football team have made some nice inroads on the recruiting trail. The long, tireless road trips and meeting with countless young athletes is beginning to pay off.
The Razorbacks have been raising some eyebrows for the great work Pittman and his staff have done to get top-tier talent to Fayetteville.
Let’s take a look at where some publications have ranked this 2022 recruiting class and what grades the team has been given.
Here’s what the Tuscaloosa News had to say about the Razorbacks:
"Arkansas’ class is the best in recent memory. Sam Pittman and his staff signed 10 of the top 15 players in the state, including five four-stars."
Bleacher Report also gave good marks to the Hogs for their haul. Here’s what the digital outlet said:
"Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman was hired after the 2019 season, and his 2022 class looks like his best one yet. It ranks 19th nationally, and ninth inside the SEC.Pittman’s big-name 4-star verbal commitments in Sategna, Chamblee and Harris ended up signing on Wednesday. The Razorbacks also signed receiver target Samuel Mbake, who is the No. 44 prospect out of the state of Georgia. Arkansas added big-time transfers in former LSU DE Landon Jackson and Oklahoma receiver Jadon Haselwood."
247Sports Ranking: No. 19 overall (Arkansas Football No. 9 in SEC)
247Sports has placed the Hogs inside the Top 20 of their rankings. They have recorded Sategna, Rowser and Chamblee as the highest rated signees for this signing class.
ESPN Ranking: No. 21 (No. 8 in the SEC)
ESPN has listed Arkansas in its top 25 once again, naming Chamblee and Rowser as the two best adds to the team.
"Owning home is a must at Arkansas, and Sam Pittman and staff are accomplishing that with seven of the state’s top 10 prospects committed. Leading that group is a pair of four-star O-line prospects in ESPN 300 OT Chamblee and E’Marion Harris. In the defensive trenches, in-state DT Nico Davillier can be a stout and strong presence against the run. Rowser, from Michigan, was a key grab out of state, as was three-star Peach State athlete Rashod Dubinion, who projects as a multi-purpose weapon on offense."
