Four-star offensive lineman recruit Jalen Merrick had quite the experience during his official visit to Arkansas over the weekend. Not only did he see the Razorbacks manhandle Ole Miss en route to a 30-0 win, but he was personally welcomed to Fayetteville by an afro-wearing Bret Bielema. Merrick even conceded that Bielema’s afro is better that his. Check it out:

We have no idea if wearing an afro is part of Bielema’s usual recruiting pitch, but we hope it is, because it’s hilarious.
Arkansas will travel to Missouri this week to take on the Tigers. The game will kick off at 2:30 P.M. EST on CBS.
