Arkansas is hosting seven official visitors this weekend including including four from inside the state.

The top two recruits in Arkansas this season are Pulaski Academy tight end Hudson Henry and Warren wide receiver Treylon Burks. Both are committed to the Hogs and will sign on Feb. 6. They lead the group of visitors.

Also visiting is two recruits who signed with the Razorbacks on Dec. 19. Warren defensive lineman Marcus Miller and Tulsa (Okla.) Union offensive lineman Ricky Stromberg will also visit. 

In addition, a trio holding a preferred walk-on offer from Arkansas is visiting. That includes Pulaski Academy wide receiver John David White and then the Highland Park (Texas) pair of wide receiver Finnegan Corwin and defensive back Hudson Clark. 

As a senior, Henry caught 94 passes for 1,309 yards and 14 touchdowns. He is the younger brother of former Arkansas tight end Hunter and current lineback Hayden Henry. He chose the Hogs over Stanford and a long list of schools. 

Burks was injured and missed much of his senior season. He caught eight passes for 244 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing five times for 31 yards. At quarterback, Burks completed 4 of 7 passes for 137 yards and three touchdowns. He returned three punts for 85 yards. On defense, Burks had 18 tackles, one sack, a pass breakup, two forced fumbles and a recovered fumble. Burks, like Henry, chose the Hogs over a long list of schools.

Miller is a talented defensive lineman who also played some offense for the Lumberjacks. He finished his senior season with 52 tackles, seven tackles for loss, two sacks, four quarterback hurries and a recovered fumble. 

Stromberg was committed to Tulsa when the Hogs came in with a late offer. He will play center at Arkansas. 

White teamed up with Henry to provide the Bruins with a potent one-two punch in the passing game. White caught 86 passes for 1,732 yards and 30 touchdowns. In addition to the Hogs, Kentucky and Arkansas State have offered a preferred walk-on opportunity. He has offers from Air Force, UCA, Ouachita Baptist and Tennessee-Martin. Arkansas extended the PWO on Oct. 31.

In addition to Arkansas, Corwin has a preferred walk-on offer from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and SMU. The Hogs were the first to offer on Dec. 10. As a senior, Corwin caught 89 passes for 1,682 yards and 16 touchdowns. 

Clark was offered by the Razorbacks on Jan. 9. As a senior, Clark had 40 tackles, including 31 unassisted, three tackles for loss, eight interceptions and six pass breakups. He also handled some of the kicking duties for the Scots.
