Arkansas has received three commitments this weekend for the class of 2013.
Defensive back De’Andre Coley from Miami, athlete D.J. Dean from Newton, Texas, and defensive tackle Ke’tyrus Marks from Riviera Beach, Fla. All three prospects committed to Arkansas during their official visits to Fayetteville.
“I did my research on Fayetteville and I can see it’s a great city,” Marks told HawgSports.com. “It has a lot of corporations in it, and being that I want to major in sport management, I can get internships and things like that after football is over.
“Arkansas has the best fans, by far. Of all the schools I’ve been recruited by, Arkansas’ fans showed the most love.”
Arkansas is hoping running back Alex Collins felt the same kind of love during his official visit. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., standout told 247Sports he plans to announce his decision on Feb. 4. He’s also considering Florida, Florida State, Miami and Wisconsin.
“I’m going to go home and sit down, really think about each school that I visited and each school that I’m looking at and try to pick based on where I feel most comfortable,” said Collins, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 1 all-purpose back by 247Sports. “I’m going to sit down, talk to my mom, talk to my coach before I make my decision. And ultimately, whatever I feel most comfortable that I can thrive academically and athletically, that’s where I’ll end up going.”
Arkansas has 16 commitments for the class of 2013.
