We brought in three 5* prospects. Alex Okafor, the #1 strong side DE in the country. Garrett Gilbert, the #2 QB in the nation and the Gatorade National Player of the Year. And Mason Walters, the #2 OT in the country, who has the ability to play either tackle spot and center.

We also brought in 11 4* prospects, led by DT Calvin Howell and OT Garrett Porter. Other top prospects are physical 190 lb CB Marcus Davis and 6-3 CB Eryon Barnett, 235 lb HB Chris Whaley, and the #3 ranked player in Arkansas DT Derek Johnson (our ONLY out of state commit),

We also brought in a few 3* prospects, led by a TE, Barrett Matthews, who is an elite athlete.

We finished second place on Devon Kennard (#1 DE) and Dre Kirkpatrick (#1 CB) so I applaud the staff for going after those guys hard. But in the end, second place doesn't mean anything and it hurts not to land those guys.
