Georgia junior O-lineman planning to visit Arkansas

Since being named Arkansas’ coach, Sam Pittman has been aggressive in recruiting Georgia, and that includes highly regarded junior offensive lineman Jakiah Leftwich.

Razorbacks offensive line coach Brad Davis had a prior relationship with Leftwich.

“I’ve been talking to coach Davis since he was at Missouri,” Leftwich said. “He told me he’s at Arkansas and he wants me to go there around February.”

Leftwich, 6-6, 291 pounds, of Atlanta Westlake, has nine scholarship offers from Maryland, South Carolina, Indiana, Minnesota, Kansas, Georgia Tech and others. He has a 3.6 grade point average and is planning to major in sports management.
