Wingo selected the Razorbacks over Missouri and Illinois, which finished third in the running. He would have been a solid pickup for the Illini, who plucked another running back, Jason Ford, from the St. Louis area last season. Ford became a key contributor as a true freshman.
Illinois has two other running backs committed -- Bud Golden and Greg Fuller -- for its 2009 class.
Wingo was ranked as the nation's 34th-best running back by ESPN's Scouts Inc.
