FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — While the 2019 season is near it may not be too late for Arkansas to add another recruit for the Class of 2020.
Former Tyler (Texas) John Tyler linebacker Tre Allison, 6-2, 233, who was committed to Chad Morris and SMU, has entered the transfer portal. He signed with Syracuse instead of the Mustangs when Morris opted to leave for Arkansas.
Allison redshirted in 2018. Allison was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. As a senior he served as one his team’s captains. He finished the season with 89 tackles, two interceptions and one forced fumble.
In his career at John Tyler, Allison finished with 275 tackles, nine pass breakups, five interceptions, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Allison would have to sit out the 2019 season and then would have three years to play three beginning in 2020. Arkansas only signed one linebacker in 2020 as they added Richmond (Texas) Fort Bend Travis’ Zach Zimos.
Arkansas will have one senior linebacker this fall and that’s De’Jon Harris. They have eight scholarship underclassmen at linebacker counting Zimos.

Still Waiting on Decision
Arkansas, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU and Ohio State are all still awaiting the decision of Houston (Texas) Cy Ridge four-star defensive tackle Vernon Broughton.
Broughton is a big-time recruit who took official visits to all five of his favorites. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Broughton officially visited Arkansas May 31.
It has long been thought he would choose Texas, but the Aggies reportedly made a move getting the final official visit. But Broughton is still thinking over his decision.
He was one of the athletes at The Opening last week in Frisco, Texas.
