Arkansas impressed the nation and several prospects with a 45-23 victory over Kansas State in the Liberty Bowl on Saturday.

2017 Baylor tight end commitment Kedrick James of Waco (Texas) La Vega:

“It was a good game, but I'm praying for the receiver that got hurt. The tight ends put in work and Alex Collins had one of his best games.”

Hog safety commitment Deon Edwards of Clermont (Fla.) Lake Minneola:

“Consistency. Adversity and mental toughness. They played their game and went out there and had fun. WPS.”

Arkansas linebacker commitment Alexy Jean-Baptiste of Pompano Beach, (Fla.) Coconut Creek:

“It was a good game and a great win and now it's time for the class of 16 to come kill it next year and I can't wait for it.”

Highly recruited 2017 RB Jk Dobbins of LaGrange, Texas;

“It was a great win, and I liked to see the running backs do well today.”

Arkansas athlete commitment T.J. Hammonds of Pulaski Robinson:

“I enjoyed the game. I love the way Alex came out to play and ran the ball hard. They came out to play. It was overall very exciting to watch the team come out and handle business.”

Razorback receiver commitment Kofi Boateng of Arlington, (Texas) Lamar:

“It was their perfect way to cap of a good season for the Hogs, AC and BA went out like champs and I'm looking forward to starting a legacy with my class.”

Hog linebacker commitment De'jon Harris of Marrero, (La.) John Ehret:

“Really happy they won this game. It's a lot of momentum to build off for next season. They will be even better when the whole team becomes healthy.”

2017 QB Jaylen Gipson of Mexia, Texas:

“That was a huge win against a good Kansas State team , Arkansas's O-line are beasts. I would love to play behind that line.”
