He has officially visited all four of his favorites. His first official visit was to OU on the Sept. 28 weekend. He followed that up with Arkansas the next weekend when the Hogs hosted Alabama. On Dec. 7 he visited Texas. This past weekend he wrapped up his official visits with a trip to TCU.
His 2018 season was cut short due to an injury suffered in the season opener against Jenks (Okla.). He completed 5 of 8 passes in that game for 70 yards and rushed three times for 22 yards and a touchdown,.
On Dec. 19, Arkansas signed defensive linemen Taurean Carter and Enoch Jackson Jr. from Legacy. They officially visited Arkansas at the same time he did.
Arkansas failed to sign a safety in the early signing period, but does have a commitment from Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson’s Myles Brooks.
