    Four-star athlete Byron Hanspard II committed to Arkansas on Wednesday, giving the Razorbacks four total commits in the 2018 recruiting class. 


    Woo pig sooie! Take a look at Bret Bielema’s Razorbacks catching fire on the recruiting trail.

    On Tuesday, they landed their third commit of the 2018 recruiting cycle when 4-star tight end Luke Ford gave his pledge — while simultaneously dubbing Arkansas as Tight End U.

    About 24 hours later, the Razorbacks added to their board again. On Wednesday, 4-star prospect Byron Hanspard II committed to Arkansas while holding additional offers from Colorado, Houston, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Oregon, among others.

    The DeSoto, Texas native is ranked as the No. 16 athlete and No. 278 overall player in the country. Hanspard released a statement regarding his commitment to the Razorbacks.

    “First and foremost, before I say anything else, I just want to give God all the glory for it is due to him for blessing me with the ability that I have thus far. Thank you to my wonderful parents, family, coaches, friends, loved ones, and all of you who have supported me through this process. I would like to thank each program very much for reaching out to me and making my decision very hard to choose from within this time period. Without further ado, after praying day after day, night after nigh, I’m pleased and truly honored to announce that I am committed to the University of Arkansas to pursue my academic career and my football career. God is great!”

    With Hanspard now on board, Arkansas moves up to No. 10 in the 2018 recruiting class rankings.
