Arkansas Football Hosting Torii Hunter Jr., Other Top Recruits For Alabama Game

Arkansas hasn't had much luck on the recruiting trail since the unceremonious firing of coach Bobby Petrino. And the shocking loss to Louisiana Monroe as a 30-point favorite hasn't helped matters, either. Arkansas does have 16 commitments, but only a single pledge from a recruit rated four stars or higher.

But this weekend the Razorbacks have a chance to turn things around as they host the Alabama Crimson Tide. And four top recruits will be visiting to take in the game.

The star of the group is Torii Hunter Jr., the namesake of the famous baseball player. Out of Prosper (TX), Hunter Jr. displayed good ball skills and athleticism during Nike's The Opening, and has continued his solid pay so far in the 2012 high school season. Arkansas has some stiff competition here, as Hunter also holds offers from Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and West Virginia.

Four-star defensive end Jamone Boyd of Lee's Summit (Mo.) West high School will also be in town. Despite its recent success, Arkansas has not had much luck recruiting elite defensive linemen. The competition for Boyd includes Nebraska, Missouri and Oklahoma State.

Also scheduled to make the trip, according to Rivals, is UCLA commitment Kenny Lacy.Lacy is a four-star offensive line recruit out of Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe High School. Having committed to UCLA last weekend, it's uncertain if Lacy will stick with his schedule. Plus, UCLA offensive line coach Adrian Klemm is one of the best recruiters in all of college football.

Still, the electric atmosphere of a top SEC game could make a big impression on these recruits. If the Razorbacks, currently three-touchdown underdogs, can pull the upset, some commitments are not out of the question.

Tyler Wilson Injury: Arkansas QB Day-To-Day After Hit To Head

Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson is day-to-day according to his head coach John L. Smith. Wilson spent the night in Little Rock for observation after suffering a blow to the head during the Razorbacks' upset loss to Louisiana Monroe. Smith further indicated that Wilson's prognosis was good but it would be a day-to-day thing at this time.

Wilson sat out the second half of the 24-20 overtime loss after taking several big hits in the first half. He completed 11-20 passes in the first half for 196 yards and two touchdowns and an interception.

Wilson was replaced in the lineup by Brandon Allen who struggled finishing 6-20 for just 85 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The timing of the injury is tough for Smith and the Razorbacks as they get set for next Saturday's home matchup against No. 1 Alabama.

Tyler Wilson Injury Update: Broken Collarbone Report Inaccurate, Status Unclear

Tyler Wilson did suffer some kind of injury on Saturday, but the extent of said injury remains unclear. Earlier, CBS Sports Radio reported Wilson suffered a broken collarbone in Arkansas' loss to Louisiana-Monroe. However, the network has since issued an apology, calling the report inaccurate.

George Schroeder also offered a similar sentiment with this tweet.

Officially, Wilson suffered an injury "above the shoulder," a spokesman confirmed without offering further details.

Which means ... we know nothing at the moment. Wilson will likely be re-checked on Sunday, at which time we'll know more about his injury. For now, though, there's nothing official and earlier fears that he may have broken his collarbone appear to be unfounded.
