It really does. They tried to get a few big-name guys late, including one CB from Louisiana. Thought they had the JUCO kid who went to Florida. I wrote about their lack of CB numbers in the 2016 class and how they were addressing it in this current class back in August, but probably should’ve looked at S too.
Josh Liddell - Jr.
Santos Ramirez - So.
De’Andre Coley - Jr.
Only three that are trustworthy on the roster. All three have flaws and you’d like them to be farther along. The main thing that jumps out to me (OK, after the terrible tackling) is the lack of a playmaker. Been a while since Arkansas has had a great, playmaking safety. That can elevate a defense. This defense appears to have very average safeties. Coley forced two fumbles Saturday and is a good hitter. Maybe he continues to develop there.
Nate Dalton - R-Fr.
Deon Edwards - Fr.
Not there yet. Edwards is redshirting.
Montaric Brown (6-0, 175, 4 star)
Derrick Munson (6-0, 200, 3 star)
Commits from these two. Brown appears to be a very good player, maybe even someone who could help quickly.
J’marick Woods (6-4, 205, 4 star)
Michigan commit. Visited, so that’s a plus, but wouldn’t necessarily get hopes up. A class with him, Brown and Munson would have to be considered an A.
On the CB front, everyone I know from Jenks says Jordon Curtis is the real deal. Jarques McClellion is intriguing. Will be interested to see if those two provide a speed upgrade over what’s on campus.
Chevin Calloway is another target at CB. He is very highly ranked and appears legitimately interested.
Obviously the staff knows the secondary needs to be addressed in recruiting (…along with LB…). It’s year 4 and these are all Bielema recruits with the exception of a Kody Walker. Up to them to go out and get difference makers now.
