It isn’t always like this in the state of Arkansas. It’s not always this loaded.
But something quarterback commitment Ty Storey has said from the beginning–this year is special, and “we’re going to own this state”. They want to keep the other SEC superpowers at bay–namely Alabama, Auburn and LSU. So far, the Razorbacks have corralled four of the top seven players in the state–and the other three are very likely to come aboard with Arkansas. Players like TE Will Gragg and WRs Darveon Brown, K.J. Hill and Deon Stewart are all top 10 in-state products who could swing the Razorbacks’ way soon enough.
Gragg is the gem and arguably the toughest ‘coinflip’ of the bunch, and Storey–the state’s top-ranked prospect to Gragg’s No. 2 spot–said he is personally working on Gragg, who is a national top 150 talent. Alabama is also working hard on him.
If Arkansas can sew up the rest of the state’s top 10 talent, watch out in a couple of years. This could be the nucleus to rebuild around, starting with a leader like Storey–the No. 1 current QB commitment in the SEC.
“Ty is a great guy,” Arkansas’ top 100 national recruit Hjalte Froholdt told Saturday Down South (he’s an exchange student from Europe). “He’s so down to earth. And then he just throws bombs all day.”
