A few more bits on Chase Hayden

Most of you probably read his father’s comments about Arkansas from The Opening.

I talked to Aaron a lot during the trip. He was so impressed with the athletic, academic and social side of things. He told Coach Bielema if they get a kid on campus they had as good of a shot as anyone.

It kind of goes back to the saying of just get them on campus. It was obvious it would’ve taken a lot to change Chase’s mind about Arkansas.

On Friday, Aaron said he would talk to me soon. That kind of told me nothing had changed. Brian Wallace’s father said the same a day or two before the U.S. Army All American game.

I like the sentiment here, but we did miss on some high end recruits late last year who had a lot of good things to say about us after visiting. I see that changing though.

Hayden is also a very good basketball player and has talked to the Razorback hoops staff about walking on.

Just being in the conversation again is outstanding. Not getting everyone, but ---- its got a great feeling to it.
