Arkansas didn’t have to leave its borders for portal help to bolster its defensive tackle group.

Less than a week after picking up an offer, Arkansas State transfer Terry Hampton committed to the Razorbacks during an official visit to Fayetteville this weekend. He’ll be a super senior with one year of eligibility in 2022.

The El Dorado native spent the last four years in Jonesboro after signing with the Red Wolves as a 5.5 three-star recruit in the 2018 class, but opted to pursue his extra year of eligibility elsewhere.

After entering the portal, he picked up offers from Houston, Utah State, SMU, Oregon State, Western Kentucky, Illinois and Texas Tech, in addition to his home state Razorbacks.

Listed at 6-foot, 293 pounds on last year’s Arkansas State roster, Hampton appeared in 36 games during his time with the Red Wolves, including 19 starts.
