Arkansas Football Recruiting Notebook, May 13

By Otis Kirk

Cortez Eatmon opted to leave William Penn after playing in two games in 2018 so he could head to Indpendence (Kan.) Community College. 

The move has paid for Eatmon in the short time he has been at Independence. His spring game was this past Friday night and he had already gained three offers prior to that. Arkansas, Georgia and Colorado have offered the 6-foot-3, 190-pound cornerback. 

He is from Jasper, Ala., and will take a visit to Arkansas on Tuesday. The Hogs offered him last week after a visit to his school from Mark Smith. 

 

Arkansas is looking for bigger, physical cornerbacks and Eatmon fits that description.

Awaiting Decision

Arkansas is also awaiting a decision from Butler County (Kan.) Community College linebacker Juwan Mitchell, 6-2, 225.

Mitchell took an official visit to Texas this past weekend and one to Arkansas the one prior to that. He is committed to Minnesota, but they are trying to hold onto him away from the Hogs and Horns.

Mitchell was a full-qualifer out of Middletown (N.J.) Mater Dei and thus can transfer immediately. The Hogs are hoping to add him to the linebacker mix for the 2019 season. Mitchell will be able to transfer to a new school on May 26. 

As a freshman at Butler County, Mitchell finished with 55 tackles, including 27 unassisted, 7.5 for loss, two sacks, an interception and one pass breakup. 

 

In Texas

The Hogs are also on a big cornerback at Blinn (Texas) College. 

The Razorbacks are one of 18 offers for Marco Domio, 6-2, 190. The former Houston Heights standout inked with Blinn out of high school. In 11 games in 2018, Domio had 21 tackles, 19 solo, a tackle for loss, one interception returned for a touchdown and three pass breakups. 

He holds offers from Alabama, Troy, Colorado, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, LSU, Louisiana, Texas State, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Auburn, Utah, SMU, Nebraska and Houston. 

 

The Razorbacks offered him on May 8.
