Arkansas is now up to 14 verbal commitments for the Class of 2019. It doesn’t take but one look at the list to know that Chad Morris and his staff are hitting the defensive line extremely hard.
The Razorbacks held their Woo Pig Nic cookout on Friday night. Already three prospects have chosen to go with the Razorbacks bring the commitment total to 14.
Inside the state, Warren defensive tackle Marcus Millier (6-5, 300) has committed to the Hogs. From Texas, Richmond Fort Bend Travis outside linebacker Zach Zimos (6-4, 215) and Pflugerville Hendrickson safety Myles Brooks (6-2, 190) bring Arkansas’ commitment list to 14.
Zimos tweeted the following about his commitment,
“Thank you to all my past and current coaches and to all of the universities that have taken the time to recruit me. This decision comes down to what is best for my family and I as this is a long-term decision. I am excited to call the Hogs and announce my commitment to the University of Arkansas. Woo Pig! Go Razorbacks!!!”
As a junior in 2017, Zimos finished with 58 tackles, four tackles for loss, one sack, three pass breakups, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and a pair of interceptions.
Brooks also took to Twitter to announce his decision.
“First I would like to thank God for allowing me to be where I am today and I want to thank my parents for taking this journey with me. Thanks to all the coaches that recruited me and offered me an opportunity to play at their schools. Today God put it on my heart to become a Razorback. UA Razorbacks here I come. #Committed.”
Miller is teammates of standout wide receiver Treylon Burks. He is also Rison cornerback Malik Chavis’ cousin. Chavis committed to Arkansas on March 10.
Zimos was committed to California but opted to decommit on May 20. Brooks was committed to Baylor, but withdrew that pledge on June 19.
Arkansas will get word from Mansfield (Texas) Legacy defensive tackle Enoch Jackson on Sunday, June 5 at 3 p.m. He will choose from the Hogs, Clemson and Texas Tech.
