Arkansas Razorbacks Football

Other schools backed off OL after injury, but UA didn’t Due To…



An Arkansas football helmet sits on the ground prior to a game between the Razorbacks and Kentucky on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019, in Lexington, Ky.

Highly recruited consensus 4-star junior offensive lineman Justin Hasenhuetl saw several college coaches back off because he suffered a knee injury last fall, but University of Arkansas offensive line coach Eric Mateos isn’t one of them.

Hasenhuetl, 6-5, 290 pounds, of Rabun Gap, (Ga.) Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School has accumulated scholarship offers from Arkansas, Clemson, Auburn, Oregon, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Florida, Penn State, Ole Miss and numerous others.

Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School Coach Derek White believes the injury caused Hasenhuetl to not be elevated to 5-star status. He said some schools are waiting to see how he recovers.

“They’re still on him but not as much,” White said. “He had an injury this year that kind of pushed them back. So I think it’s also helped him realize who’s in it for the right reasons and who’s not.”
