Arkansas football head coach Sam Pittman has been (almost) as good as Arkansas basketball head coach Eric Musselman at getting kids to his team from the transfer portal. Pittman’s second true portal class includes an established receiver, two defensive backs, a few defensive line pieces, and a talented linebacker. The class also includes four players coming from SEC schools such as Alabama, Georgia, and LSU. Pittman is reloading and getting the hogs ready to improve on their 9-4 mark this upcoming season.
Jadon Haselwood, Senior, wide receiver
Former School: Oklahoma
Oklahoma transfer Jadon Haselwood will look to replace the production of All-American wide receiver Treylon Burks. Haselwood caught 39 balls for almost 400 yards and 6 touchdowns a season ago but was under used by the Oklahoma offense, as they have many talented receivers. With questions in the receiving room in Fayetteville, despite having a lingering injury during the spring, it will be time for Haselwood to step up for the hogs in the fall of 2022.
Latavious Brini, Senior, defensive back
Former School: Georgia
Losing experienced defensive backs Joe Foucha and Greg Brooks to LSU as well as Montaric Brown to the NFL Draft will be a tough task to handle. The talented former Georgia Bulldog, Latavious Brini, delivers crushing blows with his 50 career total tackles.
Drew Sanders, Junior, linebacker
Former School: Alabama
Sanders is a phenomenal playmaker Arkansas needed terribly at linebacker. Replacing the production of four year linebackers Grant Morgan and Hayden Henry was going to be difficult but pairing the talented Sanders with returning leading tackler Bumper Pool at the linebacker position is going to be huge for the Razorbacks. In two seasons in Nick Saban’s defense, Sanders has had 33 tackles and a sack.
Dwight McGlothern, Junior, defensive back
Former School: LSU
In just two seasons at LSU, Dwight McGlothern has recorded 40 tackles and an interception. Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman has raved about this kid. He is NFL bound Montaric Brown’s replacement and hopes to be the next great Arkansas cornerback.
Matt Landers, Junior, wide receiver
Former School: Toledo, Georgia
The speedster played Arkansas in 2020 and had a few catches but starred for Toledo since transferring there. Landers had 20 catches, 514 yards, and 5 touchdowns a season ago.
Jordan Domineck, Junior, defensive end
Former School: Georgia Tech
Jordan Domineck is a boost the hogs will need on the defensive line. The hogs lose talented defensive linemen Tre Williams and John Ridgeway and will replace them with former Georgia Tech defensive end Domineck, who has accounted for 103 tackles, 9 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles in his career.
Landon Jackson, Sophomore, defensive end
Former School: LSU
The rawly talented Landon Jackson may not have a ton of stats to his name but his quickness to the ball carrier and depth he gives to a young defensive line unit is incredibly necessary in Fayetteville.
