Kenny Guiton got a big pickup for his group of wide receivers Friday evening when Clarendon’s Quincey McAdoo committed to Arkansas.

And we probably shouldn’t be that shocked. You kind of had the feeling he knee-jerked the initial commitment to Florida State shortly after Justin Stepp left for South Carolina.
According to the 247Sports composite of all the rankings, McAdoo is a highly-rated three-star prospect, the No. 52 wide receiver in the nation and the No. 4 overall prospect in the state.
For Guiton, it’s the first wide receiver pickup for the 2022 class and McAdoo is a big one when you add in he’s one of the top players within the state. That’s a point of emphasis for Sam Pittman and they didn’t want to see a Top 10 player within the state leave.
According to the guys who follow the recruiting closely, the Hogs have offered 11 players inside the state and they now have commitments from six.
It’s part of the reason the Razorbacks’ ranking has risen dramatically to just outside the Top 10 in some of them but it’s probably a little premature to get hung up on where they stack up nationally.
In the SEC, they are fourth (everybody else works just as hard at recruiting) and third in the West, but that will probably change as some like Alabama and Auburn kick their recruiting in and commitments are announced.
