Arkansas set to host more recruits

Denzell Evans is visiting Arkansas this weekend in hope of becoming a Razorback.

Arkansas' final recruiting weekend will see the Razorbacks host a few prospects with a chance to add to the commitment list.

The Razorbacks are expected to host at least three or four prospects with the possibility of more coming in as well. There's a good chance most, if not all, the visitors this weekend commit to the Razorbacks.

The headliner visiting is Egg Harbor (N.J.) Township 4-star dual-threat quarterback Damon Mitchell. Mitchell has been committed to Georgia Tech since July 14 and stands to get his scholarship pulled there if he takes this visit. Mitchell is apparently willing to run that risk and with an Arkansas offer in hand it would appear he could commit to the Razorbacks. Bret Bielema and his staff recruited him while at Wisconsin.

Osceola 3-star running back Korliss Marshall was offered by the Razorbacks on Wednesday and is expected to commit to Arkansas as an athlete. Marshall is committed to UCA and also is considering UAB, but bumped a visit scheduled for Birmingham this weekend to visit Fayetteville. As a senior, Marshall carried 129 times for 1,711 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Bellaire (Texas) Composite 3-star running back Denzell Evans is committed to Houston, but is visiting this weekend in hopes of ending up a Razorback. As a senior, Evans carried 124 times for 825 yards and seven touchdowns.

Arkansas could also get a visit from Dallas South Oak Cliff 3-star athlete Melvinson Hartfield. Hartfield is committed to Kansas State and was told by the Wildcats if he visits Arkansas they will remove his offer. Texas Tech, Baylor and the Razorbacks all continued to recruit Hartfield. Hartfield caught 12 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns. Hartfield could end up playing cornerback or wide receiver.

Arkansas enters the weekend with 17 commitments. Arkansas still has several prospects who have visited the previous two weekends they could get commitments from. Arkansas' biggest needs left appear to be running back, offensive line and possibly wide receiver.
