Third-year wide receivers coach Michael Smith and junior wide out Jared Cornelius will be the guests as Arkansas prepares to host No. 25 Mississippi State on Saturday.
In the return to his home state of Louisiana last Saturday, Cornelius scored on a 69-yard reverse in the fourth quarter to help the Razorbacks move their win streak to four games with a convincing 31-14 triumph at No. 9 LSU.
After suffering a double-break in his left arm on a 34-yard reception in week three against Texas Tech, Cornelius remarkably returned after missing only four games and has 10 receptions and two touchdowns in three games. He has found his way into the end zone in each of Arkansas’ SEC road wins at No. 19 Ole Miss and No. 9 LSU. At Ole Miss, he set or equaled season-bests with four receptions for 76 yards, highlighted by a 30-yard TD grab.
Smith’s guidance in the wide receiver room has been vital this season, as the group has been hit by three significant injuries and a total of 10 different players have started at the position. Junior Drew Morgan emerged as a Biletnikoff Award watch list member and currently leads the SEC with nine touchdown receptions, while junior Dominique Reed has scored in six straight games in his first year as a Razorback.
