Former Razorbacks Brandon Burlsworth and Leotis Harris have been named candidates for the 2013 College Football Hall of Fame Class.
Burlsworth was an Arkansas walk-on in 1994 and was named a first-team All American by Football News and a second-team All American by the Associated Press as a senior in 1998.
Burlsworth was the first Razorback football student-athlete to earn a master's degree while still eligible and is one of two football Razorbacks to have their number retired, the other being 1948 Olympic silver medalist Clyde Scott.
Burlsworth was drafted in the third round of the 1999 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts but was killed in a car accident in Harrison before training camp.
His legacy lives on through the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting children, and the Burlsworth Trophy awarded to the nation's top walk-on.
Leotis Harris was an Arkansas Offensive Guard from 1974-77.
In 1977, he became the first African-American Razorback football player to be recognized as an All-American after an 11-1 season.
He was also a first-team All SEC selection that season.
As a sophomore, Harris led Arkansas to a school-record 320.3 rushing yards per game and a share of the Southwest Conference Championship.
He was named to the Razorback All-Century team and the 1970s All-Decade team which was selected in 1994 as a part of the U of A's football centennial celebration.
He was drafted in the sixth round of the NFL draft by Green Bay in 1978 and played in 74 games over six seasons with the Packers.
The 2013 Hall of Fame Class will be announced on May 7th in New York City.
Burlsworth and Harris are two of a group of 77 players and 5 coaches vying for a spot in the hall.
18 former student-athletes or coaches from Arkansas have made it into the College Football Hall of Fame including Frank Broyles, lance Alworth, Barry Switzer, Lou Holtz, Ronnie Caveness and Jimmy Johnson.
