Varsity Preps

Arkansas Elite Prospect Camp Recap

2015 offensive and defensive lineman prospect Luc Bequette (Little Rock Catholic) worked on the offensive side for the day. Many know Bequette, 6’1” 279lbs., as a defensive end, but Arkansas wanted to get a look of him from the center position. More on Bequette’s day coming up on Varsity Preps.

2016 offensive lineman Kadarius Rowe came in as one of the top lineman to watch today at the camp. The Hope Bobcat measured out at 6’1 3/4″. Rowe’s Hope teammate, highly touted defensive end McTelvin Agim visited the camp, but did not participate in drills.

TCU defensive tackle commitment Joe Broadnax of Dallas Bryan HS, came in to today’s camp measuring at 5’11 1/2″. Broadnax had one of the best days of the defensive lineman present in Fayetteville today. Broadnax exhibited quickness and a fast first step, but Arkansas defensive line coach Rory Segrist kept telling Broadnax and the other lineman to keep their angles sharp. Broadnax rounded off several of his angles.

Highly touted 2015 running back prospect Reggie Gallaspy of Greensboro, N.C. had a very good day in the camp. Gallaspy, 5’10 1/4”, ran a 4.53 40 and recorded a 9’6 1/2” broad jump. Gallaspy was a top performer of the entire camp. Gallaspy exhibited quick cuts and the quickest feet of all the running backs in the camp. Gallaspy was recently offered by Arkansas and was also taking a visit with his father while in Fayetteville.

Spiro, Okla. safety McKinley Whitfield had another solid performance. Whitfield has been around Fayetteville before and the Arkansas coaching staff has been evaluating him for a while. Arkansas could potentially offer Whitfield based on their satisfaction from today’s performance. Whitfield recorded a 4.62 40 and broad jumped 9’6”

Fort Smith Northside’s talent was in full display today. Four Grizzly players participated in the camp and each had exemplary performances. The group of Grizzlies included Razorback defensive line commit Daytrieon Dean, promising 2016 inside linebacker prospect Deantre Hardwick, potential dynamic weapon Kiondre Thomas and 2015 running back Justin Curry. More on the four’s day coming up on Varsity Preps.

Arkansas 25 for 2015 athlete Avery Johnson was tried at safety, as opposed to his traditional postion at slot receiver. This could be the way that Johnson picks up an offer from Arkansas. Arkansas has already offered and gained commitment from his teammate in Highland, fellow receiver Deon Stewart.

Two players to look out for on Varsity Preps in the coming days are Camden Fairview athlete Byron Keaton and Tulsa Holland Hall running back Corey Taylor. Both players are fairly under the radar, but have plenty of talent. Look for evaluations on both players coming soon.
