When taking over a program a couple of months before national signing day, a coach has a couple of clear objectives.
The first thing he has to do is convince his recruits to stay committed to the program. New Arkansas coach Bret Bielema has been able to do that.
The next thing is you have to go out and recruit the prospects you know will fit your system and try to make a splash.
Bielema did that in a major way Monday night with the commitment of ESPN 150 running back Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation).
