Linebacker Jarcoby Hopson, 6-1 and 205 pounds, of Lake Cormorant, Miss., visited the Razorbacks on Jan. 27 for Arkansas’ Junior Day. He also visited Fayetteville in January 2023. 

Hopson announced his top eight schools Tuesday, which includes Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU, Texas, Miami, Auburn and Texas A&M.

He is being recruited by defensive coordinator Travis Williams and co-defensive coordinator Marcus Woodson.
