FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas didn't get a new prospect to make a verbal commitment Monday morning.
But one player's renewed commitment to the Razorbacks is garnering plenty of notoriety.
Pulaski Academy tight end Hunter Henry — who committed to Arkansas last summer but has looked at other options recently — solidified his plans to sign with Arkansas on Feb. 6 after taking an official visit to campus over the weekend. Henry, who is one of the top prospects in Arkansas, made his intentions known with a Twitter post Monday morning:
His mother, Jenny Henry, added to it with a post of her own Monday morning:
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema can't comment on prospects until they have signed with the Razorbacks. But he also used his Twitter page to hint that something good had happened for the Razorbacks as they put together the 2013 signing class:
"Woooo Pig Soooooie! The day is going up. #1-0 Razorback Family getting stronger by the day."
Henry is rated as a four-star tight end by both Rivals.com and Scout.com. The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Henry also is ranked as the No. 2 tight end in the nation by Rivals.com and is No. 58 among the recruiting service's top 250 prospects in the country. He caught 107 passes for 1,449 yard with 15 touchdowns as a senior at Pulaski Academy.
Arkansas also received a verbal commitment from offensive guard Reeve Koehler of Honolulu St. Louis High over the weekend. Koehler is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com.
