Four Arkansas Razorbacks selected to All-SEC teams
On Friday, four Arkansas Razorbacks were selected to preseason All-SEC teams. DB Jalen Catalon and C Ricky Stromberg both made the all-SEC first team. Catalon made the All-SEC first team during the 2020 season. After being injured midway through the 2021 season, Catalon decided to return to Arkansas for his fourth year. In 2021, Stromberg made the AP All-SEC second team. Phil Steele also listed Stromberg as a 2022 All-SEC First Team selection.
Others that made the list include LB Bumper Pool. Last year, Pool was in the top ten in the nation for total tackles. If Pool remains healthy, he is likely to break the program record for total tackles. Pool was named to the All-SEC Second Team during the 2020 and 2021 season by the coaches.
Another player who made it onto the list is OL Brady Latham. Latham is expected to be a preseason third-team All-SEC by media. Latham started all thirteen games last season at left guard. He held an 81.7 pass blocking rating throughout the season while playing 890 snaps. He was part of an Arkansas O line that helped the Hogs lead the P5 in rushing last season.
While several Hogs players are getting some recognition from the media, some players have notably been left out. Arkansas’ first QB, KJ Jefferson, appeared on one of the rosters. Jefferson held the seventh-highest QB efficiency rating in the nation last season. He has over 2,600 passing yards and 600 rushing yards. Additionally, Arkansas Razorbacks K Cam Little was ruled out of All-SEC teams, even after punching 20 of 24 kicks last season.
