With the news of Arkansas and head coach Chad Morris parting ways on Sunday, the attention will now turn to the Razorbacks' recruiting class. Despite the team's dismal season, several prospects on the commitment list were wanted by other top programs and now will become prime flip candidates in the weeks leading up to the Early Signing Period. So which names will schools be after the hardest? We take a look at top flip candidates
FROM HAWGBEAT.COM: Arkansas fires Chad Morris after less than two seasons
When Dixon committed to Arkansas back in the summer, he did so with the intention of playing with his high school teammate Ty’Kieast Crawford. But after the Razorbacks' struggles to start the year, Crawford backed off his pledge. Dixon has remained committed, but given the current situation it’s likely he takes a second look at his options. One option that remains intriguing is Texas, where his older brother Keontay Ingram is on the roster. Could the two reunite in Austin? Or will another Texas program take advantage of the Hogs' misfortunes in an effort to keep him in state?
Gentry hasn’t put up big stats this season at North Shore but he’s a perfect multi-purpose threat and that’s why plenty of programs still have interest in him. The biggest program to watch here is Utah, as the Utes just hosted Gentry for an official visit the weekend of Oct. 26. With Utah’s success on the field in 2019 being due largely in part to the play of running back Zack Moss, the Utes would seem like a very attractive option for Gentry.
Stewart committed to the Razorbacks in the spring, before he turned heads on the camp circuit and likely helped his stock in the eyes of a lot of programs. Viewed by some as a bit of a tweener between defensive end and outside linebacker, Stewart’s recruitment was slow to take off. But with pass rushers always in high demand, could he see a second wave of interest? Oklahoma State was heavily interested before his commitment and might jump back into the mix
