    Since 2006 the Razorbacks have started 6, 7, 5, 7, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 6 ,6 ,5 , 8 whites. Last season was 7. This year back up at 9!

    New Starter ...no where to be found on pre season Depth Charts .....Walk on (Redshirt Freshman) Corner Back Hudson Clark. Had 3 INT''s vs Ole Miss + 8 tackles vs. Auburn; gets the opportunity with injuries /COVID to the players ahead of him.

    Not really much to talk about on Offense. John Stephen Jones the only white scholarship QB looks buried on the Depth Chart. TE Hudson Henry younger brother of NFL TE Hunter ....needs to stay healthy.
    Others to Watch for ..TE's Blake Kern & Freshman Blayne Toll ; HS 4 Star recruit as a Defensive End @ 6'-5" 245

    On Defense the Razorbacks have a Snow Patrol Unit at Linebacker ...Bumper Pool who could be ALL SEC; Hayden Henry (younger brother of NFL Hunter) & Grant Morgan (younger brother of WR Drew)

    Oklahoma transfer LB Levi Draper could push to Start in 4-3 Defense. LB Zach Zimos also on 2 Deep
    Walk on LaCrosse player DB Nathan Parodi @ 5'-9" 175 likely Special Teams Ace...3rd Team Free Safety...Returning Punts at times

    OFFENSE
    TE Hudson Henry
    LG Beaux Limmer
    C Ty Clary
    RG Ricky Stromberg
    RT Noah Gatlin

    DEFENSE
    WLB Bumper Pool
    MLB Grant Morgan
    SLB Hayden Henry
    CB Hudson Clark

    If Morris has one more year, he is bringing more white kids there, Arkansas once has decent recruit class on 2020.

    no wonder they are vastly improved this year, the bottom feeders of the SEC could learn a thing or two from this and at least gain some respectability. Look at Vanderbilt and how pathetic they have become from the top down

    Hudson Clark, the walk-on redshirt freshman cornerback, had a game for the ages against Ole Miss, and he is deservedly gaining some rave reviews.

    Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman has announced that Clark will be placed on scholarship in January when one becomes available.

    The Arkansas sports media guys had some fun, as well, finally creating a bio for the formerly unknown playmaker:

    Clark was not alone in earning recognition after the Hogs defense forced 7 turnovers against the formerly-fantastic Ole Miss offense, as seen in the following story:

    as an aside, to my knowledge, Clark is the only starting White cornerback in Division I football (pending Iowa’s Riley Moss beginning his season).

    and to think, a (White) player of this obvious talent (in addition to his 3 interceptions, he only allowed 1 completed pass) only got this opportunity due to the crazy series of events surrounding the Coronavirus AND several injuries in the Arkansas secondary. such is the struggle to overcome the Caste System.

    its ridiculous that there are not more white corners...especially when horrible teams like Vandy, Rutgers, etc... can never stop anyone. If i were coaching NCAA football i would sit down and say to my staff (hey guys, what we have done is not working as we can't stop anyones passing game, so lets try to find undervalued DB's so we can trend in the right direction because things can't possibly get worse), why don't coaches think like that? Would they rather get their heads kicked in with affletes or improve with the best student athletes available? No one will question it if you improve you're team so its a no brainer to me. Thoughts anyone?

    Andrew Bird was/is a starting Corner Back for Rice. (See 2020 DB's thread) . Guess that's pending too (Riley Moss). Rice has still yet to play a game. Slated to finally play this Saturday(24th) vs. Middle Tennessee.

    Maybe, just maybe...Hudson Clark's story can ignite a bit of an uptick. The exposure can be the spark that lights the fire! A few more athletic HS prospects will be recognized with Scholarship opportunities ; instead of just Walk-on status; despite being a white athlete.

    here is an outstanding profile piece on Hudson Clark :
    https://www.dallasnews.com/high-sch...overlooked-db-who-dominated-at-highland-park/
    the author does a terrific job researching the details of Clark’s high school performance, including a compilation of Division I signees at receiver that “Hud Island” shut down over his career. the only thing the reporter didn’t do was take the final step of naming the “unknown” reason for the lack of scholarship offers.

    TwentyTwo, thanks for mentioning Andrew Bird. for some reason, i thought he had been moved to safety like so many others before him.

    wokewhite232, a big reason for the affirmative action in collegiate athletics is due to federal dollars coming from federal mandates regarding the percentage of black and brown “students” at universities and colleges. if the academic (sic) institutions want that money, they have to show they’re making all efforts to have a certain number of non-White students. and since they obviously can’t meet those numbers with real academic students, they’ve inflated the number of black athletes and arts students. hence, the creation of the Big Lie of black athletic supremacy.
