Welcome to National Signing Day, Sporting Life Arkansans

We will work to keep this post updated throughout the day with the latest tidbits and observations concerning National Signing Day.

Here you will find information as we get it about players who pick colleges in Arkansas, and we will probably toss in what’s going on with other recruits of note around the country from time to time. If you hear something we missed, please let us know, and we will do our level best to track it down, respond and keep up.

FREE Razorback & Red Wolves Recruiting GuidesAnd a housekeeping note: If you haven’t ordered your Recruiting Issues from us, both print and eBook versions for the Razorbacks and Red Wolves, we hope you will. Click here to order yours now.

We will put the finishing touches on them after today and get them ready to ship out to you by Feb. 16. These publications will feature exclusive content from Jim Harris, Jeff Reed and Nate Olson, which means, the only way you will have access to that exclusive content is by ordering the Recruiting book.

Let’s have fun, shall we?

Latest on Alex Collins:

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:37 pm

Bielema said he can’t wait for spring ball to get here. He’s not the only one. Right?

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:37 pm

Bielema said he has never signed three kids from one school in the same class before today: three from Fayetteville High School today.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:34 pm

Bielema says he is not going to over sign. Doesn’t want to call up a kid on a Tuesday night and wreck his life. Not going down that road.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:32 pm

Bielema says this class sets the ground work for next year’s recruiting class.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:31 pm

Bielema says he doesn’t know where he will rank with this class and doesn’t really care. He looks for a group to come in do what he wants them to do and be successful from there.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:29 pm

Bielema said Denver Kirkland loved it in Fayetteville. He said the Razorback player panel won Kirkland’s mother over to Arkansas. The panel is all students who meet with parents. Bielema calls it a leap of faith. But important part of the process.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:27 pm

Bielema says National Signing Day is a day in which you have to adjust and adapt. Could be changes to the class in the days and weeks to come.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:25 pm

Bielema said he didn’t want to take players to take players. He has some scholarships left. He is waiting to see what happens with over-signs from other schools. Proud he hit every region of the country with this class.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:22 pm

Bielema thinks Spaight is a special , special kid and hopes he will become a pipeline to recruits from the Little Rock area in the future.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:18 pm

Bielema loves Dan Skipper: “Sky is the limit for him.”

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:17 pm

Bielema says Korliss Marshall will likely start as safety but can play a variety of positions. He also is excited about Drew Morgan from Greenwood and Landers Award winner this year. “Very much into the game,” Bielema said of Morgan. “Plays with a lot of attitude and energy.”

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:14 pm

Bielema is also hopeful that Reeve Koehler represents the opening of a Hawaii pipeline for the Razorbacks.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:13 pm

Bielema says Denver Kirkland could play any position on the offensive line. He’s that good.

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:11 pm

Simon Lee February 6, 20133:08 pm

Bielema says he loves Denzell Evans. Great with ball security. Makes the most of every play.

    Be nice if I am wrong but a controlling Mom = The Pain of Losing a Good Recruit. Or something like that.

    Otherwise congrats are due to Coach Bielema & Staff for doing an outstanding job on short notice. Snark – I think that the former recruiting coordinator could not have come close.

    Spring football is next and not far off. WPS.
