Offering ninth graders

Dave Van Horn provided an update on high school recruiting during his speech at the Swatter’s Club on Monday.
Van Horn couldn’t discuss individual names because of NCAA rules, but said the Razorbacks’ 2018 recruiting class includes 17 players.
“It’s a superstar class,” Van Horn said.
Arkansas also has eight commits for the class of 2019 and even one commit for the class of 2020, previously identified as Bowie, Texas, freshman right-handed pitcher Heston Tole (6-5, 180 pounds).
“We actually have (numerous) offers out to that class,” Van Horn said. “When a ninth-grader is 6-3 and throwing 90, you might as well go ahead and offer him.”
