Arkansas has added Harvey (La.) West Jefferson cornerback Gregory Brooks Jr. to its list of recruits inked in the early signing period.

Brooks, 5-10, 178, committed to Mississippi State on June 23, but continued to entertain offers from the Hogs and others. Brooks had narrowed his decision down to Kansas State, Kansas and Southern Miss in addition to the Razorbacks and Bulldogs. 

He signed with Arkansas at 1 p.m. today and became the 20th member of the class. He visited Arkansas officially on the Nov. 10 weekend when the Razorbacks faced LSU. He said at the time the visit helped the Hogs.

“It was good,” Brooks said. “I was really impressed. I like it a lot.”

What was so good about it?

“It just opened my eyes a lot,” Brooks said. “A lot of different ways. I thought it was gonna be country here. It showed me different and I had fun.”

Brooks said the other recruits at Arkansas for the LSU game who were already committed made him feel as if he was already part of the family.

Brooks was recruited by Ron Cooper, Mark Smith and John Chavis. He joins Rison cornerback Malik Chavis as a defensive back signing early in this class.

The Hogs hold commitments from Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Blackman cornerback Adonis Otey, New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr cornerback Devin Bush and Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson safety Myles Brooks. The Hogs also are a finalist for Mansfield (Texas) Legacy safety Jalen Catalon. He’s also looking at Texas, TCU and Oklahoma in addition to the Hogs.
