With just two weekends left before the NCAA National Signing Day, Petrino is working to finish out what appears to be an outstanding recruiting class for 2009. He will host 15 players this weekend. Six are already committed and the remaining nine are uncommitted, but highly interested in Arkansas.
After last weekend, Petrino received 2 new public commits and a few silent commits. I will provide updates throughout the weekend. I expect the class to grow some in the coming days as available slots fill up. While the hogs are limited in number of spots, look for the Razorbacks to over-sign because some will probably not qualify due to academics or other reasons.

TE Austin Tate, 6-6, 225, 4.75 Harrison
