Simply because the unknowns. With the possibility of as many as 3 Spring signees Arkansas doesn’t have to put all it’s eggs into one basket.
With so many major programs like Kentucky also recently plucking the best of the Juco’s also the strategy of silent observation and invitation the past few yrs has payed dividends.
I’ve noticed other programs immediately take interest in prospects in which Arkansas has scouted once a offer was made. (Feels like once the leg-work has been done by Scottie they are quick to pounce)
