FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – It has been a busy week for the future of the Arkansas football program, especially in the state of Tennessee.

For the third time in the past few days, the Razorbacks picked up a commitment from a Tennessee prospect as Martavius French announced his pledge to the Hogs.

French, a 6-foot-2, 240 pound senior from Memphis Whitehaven, is listed as a four-star prospect according to 247Sports and listed as the No. 14 inside linebacker prospect in the country. French chose the Razorbacks over offers from Florida, LSU, Oklahoma and others.
