FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - A former Golden Hurricane could be earning more playing time to start 2021.

Arkansas revealed their depth chart Monday for the season opener vs. Rice. JHS alum Jashaud Stewart is #2 on the Razorback two-deep at defensive end, he’s behind senior Tre Williams. Stewart played mostly special teams in 2020.

Head coach Sam Pittman likes the look of his squad as game week begins: “I still think we’re a little beat up right now. I think we’re going to be fine on Saturday. There’s more green out there in jerseys than what we wished we had. Certainly we haven’t had any injuries that are season ending injuries, things of that nature. But also, you have to practice. So we’ll be smart with those guys. But anticipating that we get most all of them back for the game. I feel good about the team and where they’re at spirit wise and where they are mentally.”

Arkansas faces Rice Saturday at 1:00pm at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The game will be streamed on ESPN+ and SEC Network+.
