Following loss to Kentucky, Arkansas' highest-rated 2020 commit reopens his recruitment
Just when Arkansas fans thought the night could not get any worse, Chad Morris’ program just lost a commitment from the program’s highest-rated pledge in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
Not long after the Razorbacks lost 24-20 to a Kentucky team that didn’t have a quarterback this weekend, Texas native Ty’kiest Crawford announced his decision to reopen his commitment.
The 6-foot-5, 335-pound lineman is rated as a four-star prospect, the nation’s No. 18 offensive tackle and a top 200 overall recruit according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Adding to the pain of losing Crawford’s pledge for Arkansas, the Texas native plays at a critical position of need as the Razorbacks are desperate for help on the offensive line.
While Arkansas was losing to Kentucky on Saturday, Crawford was on a visit to College Station to watch the Aggies take on Alabama. The fact that Crawford is visiting College Station suggests there’s a chance the Razorbacks could lose him to a divisional rival.
Here was Crawford’s decommitment note posted Saturday night:
