Arkansas will get an official visit from McKinney (Texas) North tight end Brandon Frazier on May 2-3.
Frazier, 6-7, 231, has been to Arkansas four previous times for unofficial visits. As a junior, Frazier caught 37 passes for 513 yards and five touchdowns. Frazier has several schools in pursuit including Baylor, Texas Tech and others.
In addition to Frazier, Arkansas will host Arlington (Texas) cornerback Jahari Rogers, 6-0, 170, and Athens (Texas) offensive tackle Garrett Hayes, 6-5, 275, from May 3-5 for official visits that weekend. Rogers plays quarterback for his high school team, but is being recruited as an athlete by school. Hayes was at Arkansas in March for an unofficial visit. He has Texas A&M and Arkansas among the schools high on his list.
The Razorbacks have already hosted eight official visitors this spring.
