It's hard to believe that 2014 national signing day is only 23 days away. It seems like it was just yesterday that Alex Collins' national letter of intent to the Arkansas Razorbacks was swiped away by his mom because she wasn't happy with his decision to pick the Hogs over the hometown Miami Hurricanes.
He eventually signed it and sent it over to head coach Bret Bielema, who was thrilled to land one of the nation's top-rated running backs. It was a huge get for the Razorbacks last year on NSD, a day that can change the fortunes of a class with big-time commits like Collins.
Arkansas currently has 20 commitments for the class of 2014. Even though NSD is very close, Bielema and his staff are hard at work on the recruiting trail.
Closing is extremely important in recruiting, and there are several prospects the Hogs must land come February 5. Here's a look at three must-land recruits for Arkansas, as well as some other important prospects.
