When Arkansas football’s fall camp first opened, the biggest question both locally and nationally was how the wide receivers would look without Treylon Burks.
At first, the answer was, well, wait and see. After a couple of weeks, though, Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman is thrilled with how far the group has come.
“Our wideouts right now are playing really well,” Pittman said. “We’ve got big wideouts and we’ve got quarterbacks getting (passes) to them. We’re able to protect and that’s a good thing.”
Warren Thompson caught a touchdown pass and Fayetteville High product Isaiah Sategna has especially been noticeable, Pittman said. A pair of transfers – Jadon Haselwood from Oklahoma and Matt Landers from Toledo – have combined to give the Hogs perhaps as much depth at wideout as the team has had in several years.
“That unit there has went a little bit in the first eight practices from, ‘Man, we’ve got a concern,’ to, ‘Man, somebody else has got a concern about our guys.'”
