    Since 2006 the Razorbacks have started 6, 7, 5, 7, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 6 ,6 and 5 whites. In 2018 Arkansas will see an increase to 8 white starters, possibly 9 when FB Hayden Johnson plays! Arkansas who are lead by HC Chad Morris look to be one of the more supportable SEC teams this year, I hope Morris sticks around!

    At QB the Razorbacks have 2 whites battling it out for the starting job which is never a bad problem to have, in (Jr) Ty Story and (So) Cole Kelley. Ty Story currently has the edge so far. Arkansas look to continue their trend of fielding white WR's in Kansas transfer Chase Harrell arrived. (Jr) Harrell is a big outside threat at 6'5 215, and he's currently listed on the 2-deep . (Jr) TE Austin Cantrell will return as a starter after sharing snaps last season, also returning is (Jr) FB Hayden Johnson who should see an increase in usage in the passing game. The OL will look decent at 3/5 white, along with some good depth on the 2-deep.

    Defensively Arkansas breaks the mold for an SEC team with 3 projected starters. At DT giant 6'5 312 (Jr) Austin Capps returns with 11 career sacks, and he should improve in his first year as a full-time starter. Former 3-star LB recruits (So) Hayden Henry, and (So) Grant Morgan will start beside each-other and should form a dominate duo. They also have (So) DE Elias Hale, and (Fr) LB Bumper Pool who should both see good PT off the bench.

    Offense
    QB- Ty Storey 6'2 215 (Jr)
    FB- Hayden Johnson 6'2 248 (Jr)
    TE- Austin Cantrell 6'3 262 (Jr)
    LT- Noah Gatlin 6'7 293 (Fr)
    LG- Ty Clary 6'4 290 (So)
    C- Hjalte Froholdt 6'5 315 (Sr)

    Defense

    SLB- Hayden Henry 6'2 222 (So)
    MLB- Grant Morgan 5'11 220 (So)

    Ones to look out for in 2018: QB Cole Kelley, WR Chase Harrell, TE Grayson Gunter, OG Shane Clenin, OT Dalton Wagner, DL Elias Hale, LB Bumper Pool, S Ryder Lucas

    Here's to hoping Morgan wins his position battle! I'll be cheering for Arkansas upsets over darker SEC competition.

    Just noticed I missed Kansas transfer WR Chase Harrell. He's listed on the 2-deep, and jaa caught 4 balls for 60 yards on the season.

    Chase Harrell is mixed I believe, he’s got a light complexion but if you look at pictures of him it’s easy to tell

    DT Austin Capps was changed to an OL a couple weeks ago, but Grant Morgan and Hayden Henry have still been in and out of the starting line-up this season. Those two have a bright future as their only Sophomores.

    11 career sacks so let's move Whitey to OL.. Screw that. Too bad only SEC team with 2 white starters on defense stinks!

    I guess white players are only allowed to play SEC defense if they had an older brother who was successful at the school, both Morgan and Henry are the younger brothers of Drew Morgan and Hunter Henry who were 2 great white Arkansas offensive players in recent years.

    Awesome I had no idea those guys were there brothers, and yea I now have my suspicions that Hayden and Grant are obly allowed to start because they have athletic bloodlines.
