  08/06/22 - Taurean CarterrJr/2024, Arkansas, 6-3, 298 (DS#999 DT) + More +

  The Razorbacks will have a couple of key names either limited or largely unavailable when preseason practices begin. Defensive lineman Taurean Carter, one of the top all-around performers until the final stages of spring drills, will likely miss camp as he recovers from a knee injury suffered in the Razorbacks' spring showcase on April 16. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported he had surgery on the knee early in the summer.

Prior to his injury, Carter was expected to be one of the mainstays and leaders of Arkansas' interior defensive line. He had 24 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, and 1 sack last season, but emerged as a potential top playmaker throughout the spring. "TC will be in camp...but that doesn't mean that he's going to be active in camp," Pittman said. "But we felt like it was important that he come into camp, be a part of the team, be a part of the meetings, be a part of practice. "Not that he's going to be able to practice, yet. But we felt like that was important." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  Arkansas running back Raheim Sanders has officially been listed as the Razorbacks' No.1 running back, Pig Trail Nation reported Wednesday. After a dominant spring, the team's coach Sam Pittman has declared Sanders as the top running back on the Arkansas roster. He was third on the team last year in rushing yards, but with Trelon Smith's departure from the team and Dominique Johnson still recovering from an undisclosed injury, Sanders was able to claim the RB1 spot. - Pig Trail Nation

  Arkansas freshman tight end Dax Courtney announced in a post to his Twitter account Monday he is retiring from football to focus on his health. "The sport I've put my heart into for 19 years is now over for me as a player," Courtney wrote in part. "Football has been my life for as long as I can remember and will always be my number one story piece, but due to countless (injuries) I have sustained I have to start thinking about life after football. "Thank you to the Razorback coaching staff for recruiting me here and doing everything y'all could to make sure I had a good career. I apologize for not being able to fulfill the goals we had set out to do." A member of Arkansas' 2022 recruiting class and a consensus 3-star prospect from Clarendon, Courtney (6-6, 210) signed with the Razorbacks over scholarship offers from Baylor, TCU, Penn State, Michigan State and other programs. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  07/28/22 - Trey KnoxSr/2023, Arkansas, 6-5, 233 (DS#28 TE) + More +

  Trey Knox has a humorous anecdote to explain the difference playing his old position, wide receiver, and tight end, where he will potentially be a starter this fall for Arkansas. "Playing outside receiver, on fourth-and-1 you're most likely going to run the ball, and when the ball is snapped you can just turn and watch the play. You can turn and look inside and see if we got it or not," Knox said. "As a tight end, you're involved in that play more often than not. It's just getting there and getting set and really knowing that if I don't move this guy in front of me, we're not going to get the first down. It's just a different mindset. It's just the urgency of I have to get this done and I have to get it right now."

At 6-5, Knox had always been thought of as a potential tight end, but he delayed the position move for as long as he could to hold on to the ability to play wide receiver. But after a 2020 season when his production dropped significantly and a 2021 season opener against Rice when he went without a catch, Knox approached Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman about making the change. "Coach Pittman was telling me that I block my heart out when there's run plays called," Knox said. "I said I can go play tight end and do the same thing. I'm going to get the job done. I might not look the part, I might not be the size, it might not look prettiest, but the job will get done. "I think he understood that and felt that was the best thing to do." - Northwest Arkansas Times

  2022 PRESEASON LOU GROZA AWARD WATCH LIST: Cam Little - Arkansas, Class: Sophomore - Hometown: Moore, Oklahoma,...Little's 20 field goals were the second-most by a freshman last season, part of a stellar first year that saw him named to every major Freshman All-America team. Though his 4-for-4 game against Texas stands out, don't overlook back-to-back 3-FG games in November in which Arkansas beat Mississippi State 31-28 and then a 16-13 overtime road win over LSU in which he kicked the game-winner from 37 yards out. - Lou Groza Award

  Arkansas has been picked to finish third in the SEC West in 2022 by media members who cover the conference. The Razorbacks are slotted to finish behind projected division and overall conference champion Alabama and Texas A&M in a poll released Friday at SEC Media Days in Atlanta. They are expected to finish ahead of Ole Miss, LSU, Mississippi State and Auburn, respectively. "We don't want to repeat last year," Arkansas safety Jalen Catalon said this week. "We want to be better. Like I said, last year was a great year, but I always say to the team that last year was last year. It's 2022. "Now it's a new year. Everybody is looking to start off right and try to make it to the top."

The league's media predicted the Razorbacks to finish sixth last year. They went 9-4 overall, capping the season with a victory in the Outback Bowl, and 4-4 in SEC play to secure third in the division behind the Crimson Tide and Rebels. In 2020, Sam Pittman's first season leading Arkansas, the Razorbacks were picked last in the SEC West for the third consecutive year. "I've been a part of teams that have been 2-10," Arkansas linebacker Bumper Pool said this week. "After last season things completely changed, but it wasn't an overnight success. There's a lot of work that goes into it. "You talk about repeating (our) success, well, the work is what ultimately can determine the wins and losses. This team is extremely hard working." - Northwest Arkansas Times
