Signing Day Bonus

After completing his first class, Petrino kicked off his second class the very next day receiving commitments from Darius Winston (DB West Helena, AR) and Colby Berna (OL Spingdale, AR).

Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino surprised Berna by offering a scholarship on January 12. Berna is often compared to other talented former Arkansas high school offensive linemen Shawn Andrews and Lee Ziemba. Berna is currently being recruited by other top programs, and he'll likely receive more offers as he visits college camps this summer.

Winston reportedly runs a sub 4.4 40-yard dash, and he's a cousin of former Razorback cornerbacks Billy and Marc Winston. Other schools fighting Petrino for Winston include Ole Miss, Oklahoma, LSU, Tennessee and Alabama. Look for this list to get bigger over the coming months.
