Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Blackman cornerback Adonis Otey has now decided to wait until the late signing period to sign.

Otey committed to Arkansas on Aug. 1 and appeared set to sign on Wednesday along with his teammate, wide receiver Trey Knox. However, he has now informed the Arkansas coaches he will sign late.

Otey, 5-11, 180, played both ways for Blackman this season though concentrating more on offense. On defense, Otey had five tackles and one interception. On offense, he completed 8 of 14 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown, rushed 65 times for 667 yards and eight touchdowns and then caught 13 passes for 380 yards and five more touchdowns. He returned one kickoff for 46 yards and three punts for 105 yards. 

Otey is one of three cornerbacks who have made a public commitment to the Hogs. It’s uncertain at this time if Otey will take other visits. He visited Arkansas the Oct. 6 weekend. He chose the Hogs over Louisville, Auburn and Florida. 

Others known to not be signing early with Arkansas are Pulaski Academy tight end Hudson Henry, Warren wide receiver Treylon Burks, Phenix City (Ala.) Central running back A’Montae Spivey, Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove defensive end Dante Walker and Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson safety Myles Brooks. 

The early signing period is Dec. 19-21. The late period begins on Feb. 6.
