GOOD NEWS: Razorbacks Setup To Sign Another…

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – When Arkansas put a close to its season with a blowout loss to Missouri, 48-14, it seemed like the roster was going

to be depleted of talent by way of the transfer portal. The Razorbacks went 4-8 and missed postseason play for the first time during the

Sam Pittman era. Still, with every reason to leave, two gifted tight ends decided to remain on campus with belief in a turnaround in 2024.

Former 4-star signee Luke Hasz and redshirt freshman Ty Washington were huge assets to the offense a season ago. However, their snaps

on the field together were limited since Washington never saw the field until an injury to Hasz. Washington, a Georgia native, started the

next four games for the Razorbacks and was able to finish as the team’s fifth leading receiver. He caught 11 passes for 170 yards and two

touchdowns, but suffered a season-ending injury during the first quarter against Florida. His presence was sorely missed the remainder of

the season as Arkansas was short on pass catchers at tight end. Hasz was well on his way to freshman All-American status under highly regarded tight end coach Morgan Turner. The Bixby, Oklahoma native still finished third on the team in receptions, yards and

touchdowns despite playing only 4.25 games because of a broken collar bone suffered against Texas A&M. Despite the setback, he

managed to catch 16 passes for 253 yards. The expectation for the Razorbacks in 2024 should be both players starting and complementing

 

 

each other as weapons for the new Bobby Petrino offense. Last week, a discussion was had about Arkansas feeding its studs in the Petrino offense and if they had any. While the Hogs may be limited at the receiver position based off of last season’s production, Washington and

 

Hasz are, indeed, proven studs. “I’ve never really called a play just because, ‘Oh, this is a fancy play, let’s call it,’” Petrino said while at

Texas A&M. “I call plays for players.” BETTING CONTENT BetMGM Bonus Code MCBET Get $158 in Bonus Bets for February

Ranked for February 2024 FEBRUARY 6, 2024 AT 7:53 PM According to Petrino’s book, he likes to find his studs early and often in order

to have his players zoned in on the task at hand. “Great players play better if you get them the ball early,” Petrino wrote. “Confidence and

momentum really go together.” Due to Hasz and Washington’s athletic skill sets, they are both able to create separation and gain yards

after the catch with regularity. Petrino uses plenty of 12 personnel, which in layman’s terms is one running back, two tight ends and two

wide receivers in a specific play. Meaning defense can’t home in on just one offensive tendency because both tight ends can block or catch

on any play call. Powered by TaboolaRECOMMENDED FOR YOU NATIONAL Landlord pressured tenants for sex acts, evicted those who

Arkansas, Petrino was asked about what kind of offense he would call for next season. In typical fashion, he said it’s about players not

plays. “I honestly don’t think a lot has changed simply because I don’t think it’s about plays,” Petrino said. “A lot of folks will raise an

 

eyebrow at that. Playcalling is over-rated, it’s more about execution. It’s about how you use the players that you have.”
