I agree. Special indeed.  I think his best friend Miller will also be special.  I am sure glad we have them both.  If they get in trouble off the field it will be catching over their limit of fish.  LOL

So proud of Treylon and all the new guys.  Itís not fashionable to be a Hog right now, but all of them chose to be Hogs for what this whole program can and will be.  For that I will always look at this group differently.  These FR ainít playing around.  Iíd be shocked if Trey and Treylon arenít our two top WRs by the end of the year and good luck keeping Catalon, Bush, and Brooks out of that DB rotation.  Itís pretty obvious the interior DL guys (Marcus, TC, and Enoch) are really showing out too.  Iím ready for TNA to come to life.  I donít really care if the upperclassmen seem to grate at that term.  It may be hard to admit how awful the last two years have been, but itís a reality and something new is not bad.

I donít recall having two WRs with this much athleticism and physicality at the same time.  Childís had some size and so did Cobi so thatís probably as close as we came.  Those guys were playmakers but neither had the size Trey^2 have as FR.  Itís gonna be fun.

Great WR's make an average QB look good.  When a QB throws to a really great WR then he knows he just has to get the ball close the WR will go up and get it.   WOW!  I can't wait. 

I think we have some really, really special WR's with Burks and Knox.   These guys and there may be more will make some great catches that will add to our QB's confidence which will build our Team's confidence which will lead to some really special games and wins.

Go Hogs

Burks is the type of player who can make national headlines with his on field play. He's always come off mature beyond his years and this bit in the OP only reinforces that. Can't wait to see 'em run out. Probably the only recruit I've expected to immediately contribute as a true freshman since D Mac, and I have zero doubt he will. Next big time Hog.

I think the best part of the article was when Burks  said Special teams is a big thing to me. Just because I play on the offense doesnít mean anything. I play anywhere that Coach puts me. I take everything seriously. Iíll give effort anywhere the put me, it could be D-line or O-line, Iíll still put out the effort.... kid is just an old school type football player... wants to play every snap of every game anywhere you need him!!! I think this class has a lot of guys like that!!

Be interesting to see if they let him play there this year.  Iíd think his tackling ability and speed/size combo would be an instant upgrade to our special teams

Iíd honestly be surprised if they do that this year in particular. Coming off an injury I would think it would be too important to have him at WR/wildcat package rather than risk injury on special teams (at least THIS year).

Iím not sure it is appreciated how much difference that dominate receivers can make.

Picture Nick Starkel in the pocket and our offensive line shows the resiliency of a wet paper towel.  Starkel panics and his thought process is something like ďHoly crap!  Aaaahhhhhhhhhh!Ē as he heaves the ball in the general direction of Burks.  Instead of an INT or incompletion, Burks adjusts, uses his size and strength, and muscles the ball in for a catch and first down. 

That guy at A&M and Johnny Manziel played that game over and over for two years.

Yep, and people are going to have to provide support for the primary defenders of those guys. TE and Slot guys should get some excellent opportunities as well, not to mention how it should open up the running game.

Like some others, I can see this offense coming together before long, even fairly early this season.

I'll tell you the guy nobody is talking about. John David White. He will be an X-factor at some point in the slot, mark it down. His high school highlight tape is one of the best I've ever seen and I've watched a bunch.

I fully expect Burks and Knox to be three year starters for Arkansas before leaving early for the NFL (barring injury).
Burks could be the best receiver the Hogs have had since Greg Childs, or maybe even going back twenty years, all the way to Anthony Lucas! Burks is as tall as both of those guys, but he's thicker, seems stronger, seems faster, and has similar talent (if not more talented) compared to either of those former Hogs!
Knox could end up being the new Marcus Monk!
Throw in Nash, TQ, and Hudson Henry, and these receivers/TE's are the best to hit the Fayetteville campus since the 2008 crew of Childs, Wright, Adams, and Gragg.

He's special. He's phenomenally talented and he seems to be just a great great kid who is wise beyond his age or any age. I can't wait to see him score TDs. Since I watched his HS games I have thought he was capable of being truly great. And I feel like he has a chance to be a monster!

Burks would be the biggest KR I have ever seen. I wouldn't play him there but he could do it. I really think he could play a bunch of positions and excel.

I hope they don't do what Nutt did with DMac and wait 3-4 games play him right off. He's different. He won't be here for his senior year he's NFL talent and from what I have read and heard from people from that area he's just going to work and work not afraid to work. Turn him loose.

That guy at A&M and Johnny Manziel played that game over and over for two years.

Mike Evans. One of the most frustrating things to watch. And he's still doing it - had 1500 yards last year. In his 5 years in the NFL he's never not had a 1000 yard season. Granted, the dude was the #7 overall pick in the draft but point still taken having someone go make plays is huge.

Any way you look at it,yíallówe are blessed to have a young man like Treylon. I think the combination of his personality (quiet, focused intensity, confident with no traces of arrogance) combined with Trey Knoxís personality (outgoing, happy, full go on snap)óI can see guys like that injecting confidence in the whole team.

Yes, we got several other weapons as well. But I gotta feeling we will be talking about these young receivers for a long time.

Anyone know if Burks is still battling pain in that knee?  Seemed like in a couple of the photos and vids he might have been struggling with it but was pushing through.

I really hope it is 100% and he has a great career without ever looking back. (unless it is to see the ball dropping over his shoulder as he enters the endzone)

They have very good trainers and doctors up there and if they see any swelling or Burks favoring that knee they I am sure Burks will be asked about it and necessary steps taken.

Knee surgery was 10 months ago and if he has not reinjured it since and he has followed his PT advisers and restrengthened that knee then it can be stronger than the other knee.

The combination of a porous offensive line and receivers who can't get open quickly (or at the top of the route, for that matter) is an absolute recipe for disaster.  You can get by with strong o-line play with receivers who require time to get open.  You can get by with an iffy o-line if you have receivers that can get either vertical or horizontal separation quickly.  You'll get killed if you have neither.

This year, having explosive receivers will transform this offense, especially if the o-line improves even incrementally.  I am cautiously optimistic.

Knee is 100%.  Freak injuries can happen walking across campus.  Heís more likely to get hurt getting rolled up blocking on the edge than STís.  If this was a chronic issue, like concussions, backs, or feet, I would agree.  Now days with knees, if you fix it right and take care of it in rehab, you can return quickly, and sometimes, better than ever.  There is a very long list is successful ACL repairs in the NFL over the last 5 years.  Itís not like it used to be.

No need to be scared. You know what you see. We're going to be lots better this year. Maybe ridiculous better. These kids, Burks being one, are bringing a new standard in mental toughness. They're bought in from the start and the team has a completely different mental makeup. That, more than anything was our main issue. They were beat before they got on the field, or knew they were going to lose in the 4th quarter. Say bye bye to that crap.

Talk about an impact in one class. Knox and Burks will likely end up starters and could break freshman records. Soli is poised to be a 3rd down specialist and get ample time in the rotation in year 1, which is big for a lineman. The last true freshman we had doing damage on the line was Sosa in 2016.

Catalon should figure into the safety rotation, and Brooks has locked down a starting spot at nickel already. He is also getting a shot at punt and kick returns from what I've read.

I think that the kid and our receivers in general are going to be unstoppable.  If you want a quick fix in this kind of system, receiver is where you get it.  The offense could be night and day from last year.

If these WRs get open quickly, they are going to make CJ/TE's more productive too.  These WRs will keep the safeties from committing to Run Support so much thus the RB's will be more productive.

CCM's system is run first, a la Gus

People tend to mistake tempo with throwing the ball.

Offensive Identity:

2 Back Run oriented play action shot football team
Take a minimum of 3 shots down the field per quarter (at least 12 a game) 2 reverses per half (4 a game)
Doesnít always work out that way.
Firmly believe in running the QB, an extra gap hidden in your pocket by using the QB. Mix up misdirection with speed motion and window dressing.
Get one on ones with the ball in the air.

He reminds me of Oakland Raider Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff. Fred wasn't a speed demon but he knew how to get open. White isn't on Fred's talent level by any means but their style of play is similar.

Burks is going to be a handful for any db, including Bama's to handle one on one.  6'3" and 223 lbs blocking you is hard to just throw off you and Burks is athletic enough to match any athletic ability he will face on the defensive side.  He doesn't mind blocking at all and when he gets his hands on you, you aren't going anywhere except backward, just like that video showed.  That is what we have been missing out wide that has hampered our quick pass game.  Our wr's were getting blown up consistently and resulted in the quick pass being totally ineffective.  Get that going and defenses are going to have to move a lb out wide to help defend that play and that is going to open up some running lanes inside.

Burks and Knox have the ability to burst through press coverage as you say and that will cause the Safeties to have to cheat over for Safety support of the corners.   Burks is strong enough to burst through AND push the CB away enough to create a cushion THEN his speed takes over....safeties will not be in run support as much as last year

In the mid-2000s, a Texas high school coach named Chad Morris watched Arkansas unleash some old option concepts in a new guise with star runner Darren McFadden.

Morris had just replaced head coach Art Briles at Stephenville High School and failed to maintain the state championship standard that Briles had established. He'd switched from Briles' spread game to a power-I scheme, and Stephenville had missed the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. He determined to go to that Arkansas coach and learn as much about his offense as he could. That Arkansas coach was Gus Malzahn.

agreed... Hill is on a different level than white... but white is a damn good player and good enough to have gotten some better offers than he did.

White will play more D1 college sports than Hill ever will. Attitude is everything and glad to have him.

Sounds like we need to start another thread on Justice Hill and John David White.

How soon before y'all think Treylon Burks cracks the starting lineup?

If not crazy soon... as soon as some of the upperclassman dont cut it. I would guess if not starting he will still get around the same amount of plays as the ones ahead. Too much of a freak not to.

I think you're right. He may not actually be on the field for the very first offensive play, but I bet he is out there by the first third down!  ;)

I just can't help but get excited about the possibilities. I KNOW the O-line absolute has to perform to an acceptable level, but if somehow it does...

Burks, Knox, Woods, Hammonds, Whaley, O'Grady, Boyd, etc...Man, this team is fairly well loaded for bear with skill position players. There is another long list beyond the one I just mentioned of guys with serious talent. It just depends upon how soon they come around. Gonna have to grow up fast, but Hogs do that when they are fed well.

Get 'em Hogs!

They rotate receivers a lot during games so even though he's not starting he'll still get a lot of Playing time.

Scenario ---  Hammonds on a jet sweep . 2 Db's to beat and Burks is the blocking Wide out . With his strength he gets a piece of both and Hammonds goes to the house . Or it could just as easily be a quick out to Jones and let Burks block the Db's . Same result

I really believe his been ready for the college game since he was a sophomore in high school. But maybe that's just me.  I've seen all the great ones come out of Warren. I knew Bret Smith was special as a sophomore, but this kid was better at the same level.

agreed.... hes just different. Hes been the best high school player the last 4 years. Never been on a football field where he wasnt the best on it, obviously until now. The sad thing for all of you guys is you will never get to see him play defense... lol

I did. Last year at the game in NLR and he mainly played D the whole game. Seems like a couple of punt returns maybe and a few offensive plays. He was unstoppable on D. Sideline to sideline nearly unblockable..

He was on pace for a 50 td season until his ACL injury... something like every 3-4 times he had the ball in his hands was a TD...hes the type of kid you wish you could clone to play a couple positions on offense and defense..lol

I think the best part of the article was when Burks  said Special teams is a big thing to me. Just because I play on the offense doesnít mean anything. I play anywhere that Coach puts me. I take everything seriously. Iíll give effort anywhere the put me, it could be D-line or O-line, Iíll still put out the effort.... kid is just an old school type football player... wants to play every snap of every game anywhere you need him!!! I think this class has a lot of guys like that!!

I agree. I hated every tomato known to the world working in them during High School.  Now that I'm old I look forward to a delicious Bradley on a BLT or with just a little salt and pepper. 

Not trying to derail but they are worth mentioning.  I can't find any now and I caught a sad.

Same here, he is bigger and still the fastest RB we have. The interviews Iíve seen he has his head on straight now. Kid may blow up this season.

Would be cool to see TJ doing some motion stuff like Felix used to with Boyd running the ball and with these soon to be special young men on the outside giving more options than the defense can cover... at least that sounded good in my head.  ::hornsdown::
