FAYETTEVILLE — A trio of key Arkansas Class of 2024 targets will make their commitment known on Friday.

The Hogs are in the mix for each of them. The Razorbacks have five pledges and if they were to land this group that would propel them to eight prior to the June official visit month which is usually very productive.

The three are Mills defensive lineman Charlie Collins, 6-5, 265, Pine Bluff wide receiver Courtney Crutchfield, 6-2, 175, and Aledo (Texas) cornerback Jaden Allen, 5-11, 160. Here’s a closer look at each.

Charlie Collins

As a junior in his first year at Mills, helped the Comets to the state playoffs. Finished with 124 tackles, 54 solo, 46 for loss, 12 sacks, one interception, four pass breakups, a forced fumble and five recovered.
