RB Blanchard Commits to Arkansas

It’s probably tough recruiting for a team you probably won’t be coaching in eight months, but that’s the position Arkansas head coach John L. Smith is in. He’s actually hoping to be a “one year wonder.”

On Friday, he received Arkansas’ first commitment for the class of 2013. Running back Kaleb Blanchard committed to the Hogs over Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Louisiana-Lafayette. Blanchard would have been more heavily recruited but a shoulder injury limited his playing time last season.
