The Arkansas football team has landed another top talent from the transfer portal, giving Sam Pittman and the Razorbacks another weapon to compete in the stacked SEC West.

Georgian defensive back Latavious Brini has announced that he was transferring to Arkansas to play for the Razorbacks in his fifth and final year of eligibility.

The Hogs are going to be an absolute force to be reckoned with next season, with Brini bringing CFB National Championship experience with him. Although he hasn’t played in the game, he knows what it takes to make it happen.

Latavious Brini was a three star out of high school in Florida when he was drafted by the Georgia Bulldogs in the class of 2017.

Brini was a solid contributor for the national champion Georgia Bulldogs last season. He has recorded 23 solo tackles, 15 assisted tackles and 8 pass deflections in 2021.

Rick David of THV11 Hog Zone pointed out that the Hogs have gotten bigger and better at the defensive back position to better compete with wides in Alabama and Georgia.

The Hogs lost Joe Foucha and Greg Brooks, Jr. to trade and Montaric Brown in the NFL Draft. Brini’s move to Arkansas is a nice physical upgrade for the Hogs secondary.

Brini is joined by LSU transfer Dwight McGlothern to round out the revamped defensive backfield.

Defensive coordinator Barry Odom is surely thrilled to have some extremely talented players ready to plug in and take over an already solid defense.

The Razorbacks defense will likely have high expectations next season, despite the high player turnover.

The Razorbacks kick off the new season Sept. 3 at home against 2021 BFC Playoff semifinalist Cincinnati at home.
