Enough with the talk already about Burks and Knox. Yeah, we know they will be the best sophomore duo in the country lined up with junior Mike Woods. Razorback fans know what to expect when it comes to the big three.
As long as wide receivers coach, Justin Stepp, sticks around Fayetteville he will continually churn out quality receivers annually. This year, it will be redshirt freshman, Shamar Nash. As a composite 4-star prospect of IMG Academy by way of Memphis Central (Tenn.), he chose the Razorbacks over Missouri in the 2019 recruiting cycle.
I expected him to contribute early on during his freshman campaign but redshirted for 2019. A big-bodied receiver at 6’3 200 has the speed to burn (reported 4.53 40 yard dash), solid hands, very good agility and the ability to high point the ball in the air (reported 30.6 vertical jump). Nash can play at any in Briles offense so no worries, he will not just be a boundary receiver.

Some of the biggest plays in Nash’s high school career were in the slot formation slant routes where he could dash off for touchdowns.
With the SEC and other non-conference teams focusing more on the “Big Three” Hog wide outs, Nash will have the opportunity to find room on the field every week. A breakout season could be on the horizon for Nash as the Hogs switch to the new Kendal Briles offense in 2020.
