Fayetteville, AR - Arkansas has landed a talented four-star cornerback with the decision of Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Blackman's Adonis Otey to commit on Wednesday.
Otey. 5-foot-11, 180-pounds, chose the Razorbacks over offers from 20 other schools. Mark Smith was his lead recruiter. He announced his decision on Twitter.
"First off I would like to thank God for giving me the opportunity and the gift to play football. I would also like to thank my family, my coaches and teammates for believing in me throughout the process. I would also like to thank all the colleges that have recruited me on this journey, but now I would like to end the recruiting process and commit to the University of Arkansas." #WPS #GHG #Woooooopig
