A-State Football Adds Five to 2021 Recruiting Class

February 3, 2021

JONESBORO, Ark. (2/3/21) – After signing 15 players in the early signing period, the Arkansas State football team added five players Wednesday to its 2021 recruiting class under new head coach Butch Jones.

With the five additions Wednesday, the Red Wolves’ current 20-player class consists of 10 offensive and 10 defensive players. The group includes four players at each of the defensive line and defensive back positions, three players at wide receiver, two players at each of the offensive line, tight end, running back and linebacker positions and one quarterback.

“Today is not a conclusion to this class, as we will still look to add to this group as time goes on,” Jones said. “We were extremely productive in the early signing period and signed 15 individuals. We added five quality individuals today, and we’ll continue to add to that. We were able to address our immediate needs, and we will continue to address those needs as we move forward.

“At the introductory press conference, we talked about our recruiting philosophy of a four-to-six-hour recruiting radius. Of these 20 signees, 16 are from a four-to-six-hour radius. Our coaches did a great job of establishing relationships, but pre-existing relationships were critical for this class as well. Of the 20 signees, 14 are high school players and six are transfers, which is evidence of our program philosophy of being a developmental program. We’re going to first win with high school players, and it will start within the four-to-six-hour radius of Arkansas.”

Seven players in the current class will be available to participate in the Red Wolves’ spring camp, including quarterback Wyatt Begeal (Cibolo, Texas), defensive end Thurman Geathers (Acworth, Ga.), wide receiver Te’Vailance Hunt (Texarkana, Texas), running back Alan Lamar (Olive Branch, Miss.), defensive end Joe Ozougwu (Alief, Texas), safety Justin Parks (Gardendale, Ala.) and wide receiver Khyeem Waleed (Queen Creek, Ariz.).

Including Begeal and Parks, 14 of the 20 players inking with the Red Wolves were high school recruits. The 12 other high school players joining A-State are defensive end Dennard Flowers (Fairburn, Ga.), cornerback William Hardrick (Adamsville, Ala.), linebacker Ethan Hassler (Collierville, Tenn.), safety Cam Jeffery (Tuscaloosa, Ala.), cornerback Leon Jones (Hattiesburg, Miss.), running back Bobby McMillian (Vero Beach, Fla.), defensive lineman Jalil Muhammad (Fairburn, Ga.), linebacker Tristan Shorter (Oxford, Miss.), offensive lineman Nason Simmons (Canton, Ga.), tight end Emmanual Stevenson (Eufala, Ala.), offensive lineman Makilan Thomas (Little Rock, Ark.), tight end Seydou Traore (London, England) and wide receiver Omari Walker (McKinney, Texas).
