On football recruiting trips, visiting prospects get treated like absolute royalty: coaches pull out the red carpet, wine and dine recruits, and make sure that players stop at the university bookstore to pick up a few gifts. Coaches also like to show off the newest and trendiest uniforms that the school has to offer, because, you know, kids like those things. Today, a recruit visiting the University of Arkansas took a picture while on the trip. This was no ordinary locker room picture though, because he was holding a Razorbacks helmet that had never before been seen by the public. We’re not sure if these are new helmets that will be worn in 2013, or if they were just a special promotional mockup. Here’s the photo tweeted out by the recruit: #WPS #2014 pic.twitter.com/y1hfOrjQ6f — Rafe Peavey (@BolivarQB7) June 15, 2013 Here’s a zoomed in look at the helmet: As we said, we aren’t sure if this one will actually be used by Arkansas in the fall, but it’s not a bad look for them at all.
