I just heard about this kid from Richard’s story on him. He’s throwing 91 as a sophomore and committed to Tennessee, did Van Horn offer him?
I’m not sure if Arkansas offered him, but the staff knows about him. He committed to Tony Vitello, who has obvious ties to Arkansas and is as personable a person as you will ever find. That’s what makes him such a great recruiter.
We see this all the time in baseball recruiting. The pressure is on the kids to make a decision at a young age, typically by their junior year.
