Arkansas and Auburn was planning to stop by Warren today to check on Treylon but the weather stopped that.
Shaping up as one of the biggest in-state recruiting battles in a long time. CM etc. are really going to be tested.
Henry or Burks (or both!) ?
Something that now helps in regard to Warren is that one of the assistants is former Rogers Mountie, Steed White, who is the grandson of former Razorback player/coach and Arkansas Sports Hall of Honor inductee, Steed White.
White lettered in football in 1946 and 47, and had two stints as an assistant coach. He was an assistant in 1957 and again from 1961-63 as offensive line and ends coach. Arkansas went 6-4 in ’57, 8-3 with a Southwest Conference co-championship and No. 9 final ranking in ’61, 9-2 with a No. 6 final ranking in ’62 and 5-5 in ’63. The Razorbacks played in the 1962 and ’63 Sugar bowls. The 1946 team was 6-3-2, but was co-champion of the Southwest Conference and made Arkansas’ first appearance in the Cotton Bowl, tying No. 8 LSU, 0-0. The Razorbacks ended the year ranked No. 16 in the nation. The 1947 team was 6-4-1 and recorded the first bowl victory in school history with the 21-19 win over William & Mary in the Dixie Bowl.
As a lifelong friend of the White family, I can assure you that Steed will do everything legally in his power to get Treylon Burks to the University of Arkansas.
The young man has to make up his own mind about his future, but I’m sure he’s getting some solid advice from his coaches – including Steed.
