Wisconsin commitment and offensive lineman Jaden Gault, 6-7, 304 pounds of Monona Grove, Wisconsin said he was hosted by freshmen offensive lineman Dan Skipper and Reeve Koehler during his official visit to Arkansas over the weekend. He also spent time with senior center Travis Swanson.
All three told Gault that offensive line coach Sam Pittman doesn't change once you're on campus and they love playing for him.
Gault said he spoke to Pittman for 30 minutes over the phone early in the recruiting process and it felt like it was only five minutes. Thinks very highly of him.
He said his parents were impressed with Arkansas but still want him to attend Wisconsin. He did say they would be ok if he picked the Razorbacks. He said the Hogs have a chance to land him because he wants to play for Pittman.
