Arkansas coach Bret Bielema dons afro wig for 4-star recruit

Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema highlighted once again just how far coaches are willing to go to entice the nation's top football prospects to join their team when he donned a ludicrous afro wig for the visit of four-star offensive lineman Jalen Merrick.

The second-year coach put on the new hairdo to match Merrick's look while the senior was in Fayetteville on a recruiting visit, and it seems that it made quite an impression.

Arkansas offensive line coach Sam Pittman got in on the act as well.

Merrick has also visited with Florida State, LSU and Bielema's previous school Wisconsin.
