Five-star quarterback Mitch Mustain of Springdale High is one of the top prospects to come out of the Natural State in the past 10 years, much less this season.
The subject of many stories in the recruiting world during the past two months, Mustain recently re-committed to the in-state Razorbacks and will join three other future Hogs, offensive tackle Jim Hart of Pocahontas, linebacker Van Stumon of North Little Rock and current Springdale teammate Andrew Norman, in the top five.
Another one of Mustain's current teammates at Springdale, wide receiver Damian Williams, is the No. 2 overall player in the state. He had 2,253 all-purpose yards and 35 touchdowns this season and appears to be headed for Florida, though Arkansas coaches are still recruiting him.
A fourth Springdale product, Notre Dame-bound offensive lineman Bartley Webb, checks in at No. 6.
Wide receiver Dee Williams of Ashdown is a tall, fast receiver that enjoyed a solid senior year. He recently improved to a three-star rating and jumped into the top 10 at No. 9.
Rudy Harrell of Monticello, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound defensive tackle, rounds out the top 10. Harrell is part of an outstanding recruiting class at Arkansas State and could very well be one of those players that emerge at a non-BCS conference school and become high NFL draft picks.
