Jace Bohrofen

2021 Team: Oklahoma
Position: OF
Year: Sophomore

Jace Bohrofen was ranked the No. 38 player nationally by Perfect Game coming out of High School. He was the No. 3 player coming out of his home state when he signed on to play as a Freshman for the Sooners.

He started in 29 of the 35 games he appeared in last season, recording 26 hits, 18 RBIs and 14 runs. Look for him to be a solid contributor in the outfield for the Razorbacks.

Chris Lanzilli

2021 Team: Wake Forest
Position: INF/OF
Year: Graduate

Chirs Lanzilli comes to the Hogs after an incredible career at Wake Forest. The multi-positional player left the Demon Deacons as one of the team’s best home run hitter of all time. Lanzilli ranks No. 8 on Wake Forest’s all-time home run list, having recorded 42 homers during his time there.

His powerful bat brought in 49 hits, 35 RBIs and a batting average of .259 in his senior year alone. Arkansas Head Coach Dave Van Horn has to be ecstatic to get a slugger like Lanzilli in Fayetteville for the upcoming season.

Lanzilli was drafted by the San Francisco Giants No. 1116 overall in the 2019 MLB Draft.
