Arkansas has landed Tyler (Texas) Grace Community School athlete Braydon Stone to add to its 2019 walk-on class.
Stone, 5-11, 175, announced the commitment on Twitter Monday.
I want to thank everyone who has pushed me to be in the position I am today. And for the people that have doubted me along the way, thank you. I’m not done yet. With that being said I am blessed to say I will be attending The University of Arkansas as a walk on! #WooPig pic.twitter.com/4OoOHhXBvf— Braydon Stone (@BraydonStone14) February 4, 2019
