Storey receives offer from Bama
STAFF PHOTO JASON IVESTER Charleston High School sophomore quarterback Ty Storey speaks on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012, during the Northwest Arkansas Touchdown Club meeting inside Mermaids restaurant in Fayetteville.
Charleston quarterback Ty Storey 6-3, 217, 4.92 seconds in the 40 yard dash, has received a scholarship offer from Alabama after an impressive showing at their camp this morning. He also has an offer from Arkansas State. He will attend Arkansas' camp on June 10th. Video highlights click here
He was named to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Super Sophomore team after completing 328 of 503 passes for 4,397 yards and 46 touchdowns. Only Rhett Lashlee of Shiloh Christian, who threw for 4,546 yards in 1999, has thrown for more yards as a sophomore in Arkansas.
He's the second Arkansas athlete to be offered by Alabama in the last two days. Pine Bluff tight end Will Gragg received an offer on Monday.
This was tweeted out earlier but it should be noted that Storey has an excellent relationship with Arkansas offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Jim Chaney and has been to the school several times to spend time with Chaney. The Hogs visited his school the two times allowed by the NCAA during the spring evaluation period with Chaney making one of those visits.
