Arkansas is set to host at least five official visitors this weekend as the spring game is on Saturday.
The Razorbacks will host two wide receivers and three defensive backs. Among the visitors is New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr three- star cornerback Jamie Vance, 6-0, 175, who is committed to the Hogs. His former teammate, cornerback Devin Bush, signed with Arkansas in December and is currently going through spring drills.
Here’s a closer look at each of the five official visitors.
Jamie Vance, CB, 6-0, 175, New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr
Committed to the Razorbacks on Feb. 26 which was three days after he took an unofficial visit to Fayetteville. He also took an unofficial visit to see the Hogs on Feb. 11, 2018. He has looked good at some combines since making his verbal pledge to Arkansas. He is a three-star recruit with 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. If he continues to show out at the camps he could be a candidate to see a bump in the rankings. Auburn offered him after his commitment to Arkansas.
Jerrin Thompson, S, 6-1, 185, Lufkin (Texas)
Took an unofficial visit to Arkansas on March 9 at an Elite Prospect Day. One of the top safeties in the Lone Star State. Right now, has Arkansas, LSU and TCU at top of his list. He’s a four-star recruit with 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. Would be a great get for Hogs. Right now, LSU is possibly out in front, but Hogs are making strong push to land his commitment.
Ja’Lynn Polk, WR, 6-2, 185, Lufkin (Texas)
He also was at Arkansas on March 9 for the Elite Prospect Day. Talented wide receiver who caught 37 passes for 700 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior. Arkansas is the likely leader over Houston and Baylor. Rated a four-star recruit by 247Sports, but a three-star by Rivals and ESPN. Arkansas has a commitment from Alpharetta (Ga.) Denmark’s Ze’Vian Capers at wide receiver. They are expected to take three or four wide receivers in the Class of 2020.
Darius Snow, S, 6-1, 212, Carrollton (Texas) Hebron
This talented safety is one of the best in the nation. He has set four official visits. He will be at Michigan State next weekend and then has fall trips set to TCU (Sept. 20) and Notre Dame (Oct. 11). As a junior, Snow had 108 tackles, three for loss, three pass breakups and two fumble recoveries. He is a four-star recruit with 247Sports and Rivals while ESPN amazingly has him a three-star. Snow and Thompson would be great gets at safety for the Hogs.
Kelvontay Dixon, WR, 6-0, 175, Carthage (Texas)
Solid wide receiver who is very athletic. Texas will be hard to beat for him, but the Hogs are in the hunt. The Razorbacks are in great shape for his teammate, offensive tackle Ty’kieast Crawford who will officially visit Arkansas next weekend. Dixon had 84 receptions for 1,288 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior. He visited Arkansas unofficially on Nov. 10, 2018, with Crawford to watch the Hogs take on LSU. He’s a three-star recruit with 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN.
