FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas plans to sign a long snapper and punter in the Class of 2022 and now Scott Fountain is halfway finished with that task.
Arkansas will sign Cambridge (Wis.) long snapper Elijah Stein, 6-3, 210, as a scholarship recruit. He announced his commitment on Twitter Tuesday evening.
Stein is rated the nation’s No. 4 long snapper by Kohl’s Professional Camps. Arkansas held its specialist camp this past Sunday.
Here’s the scouting report on Stein from Kohl.
“Stein is a special talent in the 2022 class and someone who still hasn’t reached his full potential. He snaps one of the fastest footballs I have ever seen at the high school level but is also one of the most consistent. During the Kohl’s Texas Showcase, he finished with a blazing snap time of .64 seconds and scored on 10 of his 12 long snaps. Stein showed impressive athleticism for his size by measuring in at 6’,3” and running a 4.77 second 40-yard dash. Stein not only is one of the best prospects in the country, he is also a wonderful individual.”
Stein will play in the 2022 All-American Bowl in San Antonio this January.
Stein also drew high praise and All-America status from Rubio Long Snapping.
Arkansas now has 11 commitments in the Class of 2022.
