New Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema will host his first two official visitors beginning Tuesday…
The 2007 recruiting class saw a similar situation for the Herd. Marshall was recruiting a player who had played safety but was being moved to linebacker, and his teammate who was playing linebacker was going to be moved to safety. Those players were Corey Hart and Franchez Pitts. Hart and Pitts both committed to play for the Herd and signed. Pitts never materialized. Hart came to campus, played a couple years, was productive, and prior to be ready to make an impact got into some trouble and was no longer on the team.
Hewitt played at safety, while his teammate, Tiquention Coleman, played linebacker. Coleman is a three star defensive back who signed in December as a mid year enrollee with Arkansas. Per an earlier scout article, http://arkansas.scout.com/2/1248479.html, Hewitt had the size which better suited the outside linebacker position, so the switch was made.
The switch worked out very well, as Hewitt ended the season with 72 tackles.
Hewitt had also made an earlier visit to Arkansas. Hewitt had offers from Colorado State and Rutgers.
