Kevin Shorter, Newton (Texas)
Shorter is a 4-star athlete who has a grade of 92. He's No. 179 in the Top 247, No. 13 athlete and No. 21 in Texas according to 247Sports. Shorter can play on either side of the ball, but will very likely be a running back in college. He's down to Arkansas and Texas A&M and visited Arkansas recently during its camp. As a junior, Shorter carried 151 times for 1,810 yards and 31 touchdowns, caught 15 passes for 315 yards and five touchdowns. At cornerback, he had 58 tackles, three interceptions and one fumble recovery. Is Arkansas signee D.J. Dean's cousin.
Sione Palelei, Gonzales (La.) East Ascension
Rated a 3-star with a grade of 87, No. 14 all-purpose back and No. 34 recruit in Louisiana by 247Sports. Attended Arkansas' Red-White game. As a junior, carried 111 times for 828 yards and 13 touchdowns while also catching 20 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns. Oklahoma State, Hawaii, Ole Miss, LSU and Arkansas are all involved though LSU and Ole Miss haven't offered to this point. I'm not so sure Arkansas hasn't cooled on him some in recent weeks though I could be wrong.
Prediction: Oklahoma State unless LSU offers then that is where he will go for sure.
>>>>>Bet Sione puts up some hellasious(sp) numbers in the Big XII.
Arkansas has a commitment from North Little Rock 3-star Juan Day, but is wanting to add at least one more running back to this class. Come inside for more.
Hate to see a kid like Palelei get away. Doubt he'll sit for a greyshirt. We've got LF and, perhaps, DW, in consideration.
He'll wind up at a major D-1 program for sure.
