Jim Harris: Kiero Small Looms Large For Hogs As They Look For More Leaders, Playmakers

by Jim Harris 7/27/2012 2:48 pm

Kiero Small epitomizes the Bobby Petrino recruit. As a 5-foot-10 runner whose strength was blocking, he fell below the radar of the national recruiting "gurus" as Petrino and the Razorbacks signed Small out of Hartnell Community College in Valley Forge, Pa., in February 2011. But immediately, when the former Hog coach was discussing that particular recruiting class, his eyes lit up over the way Small could light people up as a blocking back and how he hit as a linebacker. Arkansas plans to get him on the field doing both, blocking as well as hitting on defense, Paul Haynes said Thursday.

by Chris Bahn 7/18/2012 5:54 pm

Schools recruiting Kiero Small primarily wanted him at linebacker. Arkansas was the only school to offer him as a fullback, but he’s being considered for both jobs with the Razorbacks. Small worked some in the spring at linebacker and that should continue during fall camp.

by Chris Bahn 4/5/2012 7:30 am

Versatility is key if you’re going to play defensive end at Arkansas. Several packages installed this spring have called for ends to begin plays in a standing position, rather than with a hand on the ground. It’s been something Chris Smith and Austin Flynn have done throughout the spring. It doesn’t end there.

3-And-Out: Kiero Small A Smashing Success For Arkansas, Wright Not Expected Back For Vanderbilt

by Chris Bahn 10/28/2011 7:36 am

Kiero Small isn’t just paying lip service when he talks about how much he enjoys playing fullback. His words are just part of the proof he relishes his role with the No. 10 Arkansas football team. First, consider how eagerly the 5-foot-10, 255-pounder doles out punishing blocks on opponents. It was last week against Ole Miss that Small, a former junior college linebacker, delivered a hit so hard it knocked the opposing player’s helmet off.

Bahn: Adams' Big Play Allows No. 10 Razorbacks To Relax In Second Half

by Chris Bahn 10/9/2011 9:30 am

Arkansas enjoyed a total team victory on Saturday. No doubt. The defense forced three turnovers and outside of two big plays and a couple of first-quarter touchdowns, held strong. Special teams chipped in as well, but it was that quick-strike run from Joe Adams lined up at tailback with 7:43 left in the third quarter that left no doubt the 74,191 fans on hand were watching an Arkansas victory.

by Chris Bahn 8/6/2011 7:21 am

Freshman Brey Cook enrolled in the spring and seemed like a good possibility to man one of Arkansas’ open offensive tackle spots. Now it seems like Cook could very well wind up at guard. Cook is seeing increased time at one of the team’s guard spots. He worked some there in the spring and now has been asked to learn both tackle spots and guard.

3-And-Out: Defense Shines, Offense Shaky As Razorbacks Open Fall Camp

by Chris Bahn 8/4/2011 10:18 pm

Just how far the defense has come entering Arkansas Coach Bobby Petrino’s fourth season was clear as the Razorbacks opened their 2011 camp on Thursday. Petrino was quick to praise the unit for its efforts, following a 90-plus minute workout on the UA intramural fields. It wasn’t like seasons past when he was primarily upset with his offense for a bad day. Petrino was genuinely pleased with how the defense performed and kept the offense on its heels at times.
