FAYETTEVILLE — Former LSU cornerback Dwight McGlothern is set to start an official visit to Arkansas later this morning.

McGlothern, 6-2, 186, was a four-star recruit out of Spring (Texas) Klein Oak in the Class of 2020. He played two seasons at LSU. He chose LSU over schools such as Arkansas, USC, Georgia and others.

As a sophomore this season, McGlothern had 32 tackles, 26 solo, two for loss, one interception, five pass breakups, a quarterback hurry and also forced a fumble.

In addition to McGlothern, Arkansas is hosting former Tulsa defensive lineman Jaxon Player, 6-0, 290, for an official visit this weekend.

The Razorbacks have already landed former Oklahoma wide receiver Jadon Haselwood, 6-2, 203, and former LSU defensive end Landon Jackson, 6-7, 270, from the transfer portal. Both signed with Arkansas on Dec. 15.

McGlothern and Player were both included in the first look at transfer portal targets of Arkansas on Jan. 12.
