4-Star Hanspard Featured In this Week's RN Recruiting Report

Fayetteville, AR-

This week's recruiting report focuses on the 2018 Class with the exception of Hudson Henry from 2019.

Here's the transcription from our interview with Richard Davenport from WholeHog Sports and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:

 Drew Amman

"This is the Pigtrail Show, and it rolls on with Richard Davenport. Always a good day when you can talk with RD, and Richard is with WholeHogSports and the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Now Richard let's talk about the 2018 class and begin with Patrick Fields. Now as far as the State of Oklahoma, it's a state that Bret Bielema really wanted to focus on in the 2017 class. In terms of 2018, this Patrick Fields kid is from Tulsa. He is a three star."

 

Richard Davenport

"And he is a guy that has been on campus a couple of times. He visited for the Alabama game and I believe the LSU game. Really was impressed with the atmosphere, and has interest in Arkansas. Arkansas offered him not too long ago. Good thing is Arkansas currently has his teammate on campus. Kyrei Fisher who enrolled in January, and he is having a great time. He is really enjoying his time in Fayetteville. That is a plus for Arkansas. Patrick said that him adjusting to college life at Arkansas was a plus, and he plans to visit Arkansas during the Spring, but he's definitely one of the better prospects in the state of Oklahoma."

 

Drew Amman

"Another three star now and that is Bryson Jackson. He is a receiver. What do you like about this kid?"

 

Richard Davenport

"Oh I love this guy. He is a game changer out of the Houston area. He is teammates with Grant Gunnell, who is a 2019 target for Arkansas. Grant and his father plan to visit Arkansas March 1st and April the 1st, and Bryson is going to try and come up with them. He has a baseball game I think that weekend, so that may halt him, but he is a guy that like I said, he is just a game changer.  

 

Drew Amman

"To the junior college ranks, and focusing on the D line, we are talking about Tayland Humphrey. He is a defensive tackle."

 

Richard Davenport

"That he is. He is a Juco guy. 6'3", 250 pounds. Obviously would sit well right in the middle of that Arkansas 3-4 defense. You know, Arkansas has a couple of ties with him. Gabe Richardson, defensive end/linebacker, obviously he is going to be on campus and be a Razorback this summer, and will play in the fall. He's from the same school. Hutchinson Community College, and then you've got Alfred Davis, a former GA at Arkansas this past season, and season before that. He is the defensive line coach at Hutchinson, so that's always a plus. Gabe said that he's going to try to get him down for a visit, and Gabe is a very proud Hog."

 

Drew Amman

"Byron Hanspard is a four star. Now, this is a kid for Desoto, Texas...also a guy who has been offered a scholarship by Arkansas."

 

Richard Davenport

"And he visited earlier during the season and had a great time. Actually even thought about committing to Arkansas. He's really kind of blown up, as far as the number of offers. Arkansas was one of his first offers. He is still highly interested in Arkansas. Bumper Pool and Connor Noland, the two 2018 commitments are working on him. I think Arkansas sits very well with him."

 

Drew Amman

"Yeah, well let's wrap things up very quickly with a familiar name. That is Henry.  Hudson Henry...a tight end for the 2019 class. He could be the fourth from the Henry family to play at Arkansas."

 

Richard Davenport

"No doubt, he plays tight end too, and he is a faster version of Hunter. I think Hunter would even tell you that. If you look at his video and then look at Hunter at the same age, you see a little bit more of an athletic guy. Maybe not more physical at this point, but definitely more athletic. Got an offer from Arkansas earlier in the week, and it's just an amount of time before he jumps on board."

Drew Amman

"I love it. A faster version of Hunter Henry. We are talking about Hudson Henry, and we're talking with Richard Davenport from WholeHogSports and the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. RD, thanks very much.
