Dyersburg (Tenn.) High School linebacker Chris Russell is adding offers at a fast clip in recent days.
Russell, 6-1, 215, added Auburn on Nov. 20 and then today, Nov. 26, Tennessee jumped into the mix. Arkansas had offered on June 21.
He was offered by Memphis on June 2 and then committed 10 days later. It appears now the Tigers may have work cut out for them to keep Russell,
Arkansas’ defensive coordinator John Chavis saw Russell play on Friday, Nov. 2, during Arkansas’ bye week. Chavis will do an in-home visit with Russell on Thursday.
Russell also holds offers to Troy, Tennessee-Martin, Southeast Missouri, Austin Peay, Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee.
