Wide Receivers Turning Heads At Spring Practice

The Arkansas Razorbacks Wide Receiving Core is planning to make a much bigger impact in 2014 than they did the year before.
"You know, everyone is doubting, saying we don't have any receivers- so we are going to shock the nation," Says Senior Demetrius Wilson.

"We have something to prove. Every meeting we have, we're like 'let's go, let's prove the day.'," adds Freshman Wide Receiver Jared Cornelius.

"We've simplified some things, and I am really impressed with this group because I feel a lot more comfortable myself  with the offense, and they also feel a lot more comfortable with it," adds Wide Receivers coach Michael Smith.

Familiar names like Keon Hatcher and D'Arthur Cowan are back- but now so is Senior Demetrius Wilson- who is coming off a medical redshirt.

"Everybody is together, you know, from the Freshman, to the Sophomores, to the Juniors, we've all go to be one unit, you know. It's got to be a team effort," adds Wilson.

But it's not all about who is back, but maybe more about who has arrived- two members of this years signing class quickly making a name for themselves during Spring Practice.
"It's been a pretty smooth transition, but it's obviously a step up, but I'm loving it because it's just another challenge," says Junior College transfer Cody Hollister.

"That's exactly what I'm trying to do, set a name for myself, and I feel like I've done that so far, but I've got a lot more work to do," continues Cornelius.

"I just think they've brought a little 'umph' to our group because, you know, competition brings out the best, and these are two guys that have come in with the intentions of playing a lot next year," adds Smith.

As a group, they've been working hard to make Arkansas better through the air- and so far this spring, everyone is paying attention

"I'm solid with them right now. I think they are playing hard. They're not making a lot of mental mistakes. They're doing what we ask them to do," says Offensive Coordinator Jim Chaney.
