How about that? ! Arkansas was considered a long shot to receive the services of Alabama transfer linebacker Drew Sanders. The Denton, Texas native entered the transfer portal last Tuesday.
The 6’5, 244 pound visited Arkansas on Wednesday and will later visit Texas and Oklahoma as well. It was a job well done by linebackers coach Michael Scherer and the entire defensive staff to get such a coveted linebacker out of the gate.
A member of the 2020 recruiting class, Sanders was ranked the 22nd player overall and the number one athlete.
Sanders played quite a bit at the start of the 2021 season when he recorded six tackles against Miami. The following week, he got his first start against Mercer by breaking a few passes and recording two tackles. He would sustain an injury in the Ole Miss game and did not play much after that point. The linebacker finished the 2021 season with Sanders finished the year with 24 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack, four quarterback rushes and two pass breakups.
The former Alabama linebacker delivered a fair pop in the video above. Showing the courage and tenacity required for his position. Something Razorback fans have grown accustomed to with linebackers Hayden Henry and Grant Morgan.
