Hogs land 4* offensive tackle from Miami live on ESPNU on Signing Day!
Name: Denver Kirkland
Weight: 333 lbs
Hometown/High School: Miami, Florida/Booker T Washington High School
It's been a great few days for Razorback fans, and Kirkland kept the momentum going by announcing live on ESPNU on Signing Day that he will attend Arkansas.
Kirkland is from Miami, and he was rumored to be leaning toward the Hurricanes but there has reportedly been a ton of drama about whether or not Miami actually wanted him. SB Nation has more on that story.
But it's all good for Arkansas! The Razorbacks were spurned on ESPNU's Signing Day Special last year with Dorial Green-Beckham, but it was good news this year. So good, that UA released this pic of offensive line coach Sam Pittman celebrating Kirkland's announcement:

Fans have to love that Bielema and his staff have now brought in three 4* offensive lineman and a 5* running back to run behind them. What an awesome base for the next few years.
Kirkland chose Arkansas over Florida State, Auburn, USC, Ole Miss, West Virginia, and more.
