Arkansas Football: 3 Second-Year Players Poised for Stardom in 2023

In a very short period of time, Sam Pittman has done wonders for the football program at Arkansas. Before he took over, the program was in terrible shape. Yet right away, he made it successful and a real danger to the SEC.


Despite a somewhat dismal 2022 season, he was able to rebound with the aid of his 2022 class, which was outstanding.


In 2023, these three second-year players could break out as stars for the Razorbacks.

#3 Andrew Chamblee,  Offensive Tackle

Last season, Arkansas' offensive line, which was among the best in the SEC, helped to create an outstanding rush attack that averaged well over 200 yards per game. How would you proceed after that? To fill the vacuum left by Dalton Wagner, you insert a someone with Andrew Chamblee's size and ability to be an extremely strong offensive lineman.


Four-star prospect Chamblee enrolled early in the 2022 class. He would make the ideal Wagner replacement because he is 6-foot-7 and weighs roughly 305 pounds.

#2 Quincey McAdoo, Defensive back

Wide receiver Quincey McAdoo, a four-star recruit, came to Arkansas. He was anticipated to become a member of the receiving corps and provide much-needed depth there. Yet he quickly switched to a different position and did well.


McAdoo had 30 tackles, a sack, four pass breakups, and two interceptions during his relatively seamless move to cornerback. He was one of the team's most reliable defensive backs, and in 2023, he's expected to start. He is a no-brainer selection since he's already had a bit of a breakout, but I believe Arkansas could use him as an all-conference cornerback.

#1 Isaiah Sategna, Wide Receiver

Before Mario Cristobal made the decision to move to Miami, the top prospect in the state of Arkansas for the 2022 class had already given his commitment to Oregon. When that occurred, Isaiah Sategna opted to change his mind and sign with the Arkansas Razorbacks instead of staying true to his original promise. According to the 247Sports composite, Sategna was rated as the 137th best overall recruit and the 23rd best receiver in the 2022 class.

Jadon Haselwood and Matt Landers, the team's top two receivers from 2022, who transferred in before the season and led the Razorbacks with more over 1,600 combined yards, are now on their way to the NFL. It won't be simple to replace those targets, but Sategna appears to have what it takes to be a WR1.

Because to his limited playing time as a freshman—just four games—and two catches for 12 yards, Sategna was able to keep his redshirt. In 2023, their figures will rise.
