Louisiana offensive tackle prospect Mark Snyder has had a solid senior season at a new school and interest in him by college recruiters has picked up.
The 6-foot-7, 270-pound Snyder transferred from Brother Martin High in the New Orleans area to West Monroe.
George Snyder says his son has scholarship offers from Arkansas, Mississippi State, Louisiana-Lafayette and West Virginia. The Razorbacks have invited Mark up for a visit the weekend of Nov. 5 for Arkansas' home game with South Carolina and according to George, they will take it.

Hogs tight ends coach Clifton Ealy is recruiting Snyder for the Razorbacks.
Central Florida, Auburn, Ole Miss and LSU also have shown interest. In fact, Mark Snyder has made two unofficial visits to Baton Rouge the past two weeks, catching the Tigers' 21-17 win against the Gators on Oct. 15 and their 20-17 overtime triumph against Auburn last Saturday.
George Snyder said that Tigers, should they offer, are the clear favorite. He added that LSU offensive line coach Stacy Searles will scout Snyder personally when West Monroe plays Ruston in a couple of weeks.
"He wants to stay close to home," he said. "For (LSU) to offer, it would be a dream come true."
Ole Miss would be No. 2 on Snyder's list.
All of the programs recruiting Snyder want him as an offensive tackle, except Central Florida, which wants him as a blocking tight end. Snyder played tight end at Brother Martin last year before switching to tackle at West Monroe this season.
His teammates at West Monroe include LSU safety commit Shomari Clemons, Auburn quarterback commit Steven Ensminger and Louisiana-Monroe running back commit Frank Goodin.
