NSD '22

Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman talks with fans during the Hogs’ Nov. 6 victory over Mississippi State. Pittman and his staff signed 22 new Razorbacks on Wednesday to open the early signing period.

Arkansas Football head coach Sam Pittman and his staff celebrated the official commitment of 22 signees to its 2022 recruiting class on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

“I’m very excited about the class,” Pittman said in a press conference. “I think we addressed most of our needs.”

The 2022 class is ranked No. 19 in the country and No. 9 in the Southeastern Conference by 247sports.

The 2022 class ranks 13th in the country on Rivals.com and is the highest-rated class in the 20-year history of the recruiting news site.

The incoming class is made up of four four-star players, 14 three-star prospects and two specialists. The specialists include ProKick Australia’s Max Fletcher, the No. 2 punter in 247’s rankings, and Eli Stein of Cambridge, Wisconsin, who ranks as the No. 2 long snapper in the country.

Ten members of this year’s class hail from Arkansas, including four-star wide receivers Isaiah Sategna from Fayetteville and Quincey McAdoo from Clarendon. The other in-state four-stars are offensive tackles Andrew Chamblee of Maumelle and E’Marion Harris of Little Rock.

In addition to the high school signees, two highly regarded transfers also signed with the Hogs on Wednesday. Defensive lineman Landon Jackson was a four-star recruit for LSU, and wide receiver Jadon Haselwood was 247's No. 1 wide receiver in the nation when he committed to Oklahoma in 2019. Haselwood will become the highest-rated recruit to suit up for the Razorbacks.

“I think those two guys at their position are probably about as good as there is in the country,” Pittman said. “We’re very excited to get both of them because we expect them to help us immediately.”

Arkansas can fill as many as 28 scholarship spots this offseason, meaning there are six scholarships still available.
