Treylon Burks might have re-written the Arkansas football record books had he stayed for another season in Fayetteville. Instead, he’s off to ply his trade in the NFL.

Replacing his production on offense – 66 receptions for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns – is paramount for the Razorbacks. But replacing him with just one player is a proposition few teams could accomplish.

So Arkansas coach Sam Pittman said, during his speaking time at SEC Media Days on Wednesday, the Hogs will do it in bulk.

“Ketron Jackson, I think, is going to have his best year,” Pittman said. “Warren Thompson and Bryce Stephens are ready to go. Those guys will help in addition to Jadon Haselwood and Matt Landers.”

Jackson and Thompson were the only regulars in the rotation last year among the group Pittman mentioned. Jackson had just five catches for 97 yards but his athleticism showed on a regular basis and he could be future No. 1. Thompson had 19 grabs for 304 yards and two touchdowns, making him Arkansas’ leading returner out wide.

Haselwood is largely expected to be the leading receiver. The Oklahoma transfer had 39 grabs for 399 yards and led the Sooners with six scores last year.
