Connor Noland set to announce on Wednesday
FAYETTEVILLE Two Arkansas coaching staffs hope to get great news later this week from the state’s top 2018 two-sport prospect.
Greenwood junior quarterback/pitcher Connor Noland (6-1, 190), a consensus four-star grid prospect and Hawg Illustrated's top 2018 gridiron prospect, said Tuesday he has an announcement coming soon.
“Yes, I am announcing soon,” Noland said. “This week.”
He later confirmed that decision will come on Wednesday at a time to be determined.
Noland split time at quarterback last season and completed 73 of 103 passes for 872 yards and nine touchdowns with just two interceptions while also rushing 61 times for 431 and four more scores.
He has also touched 91 miles per hour with his fastball and is considered the top baseball prospect in the state as well in the 2018 class.
Noland has football offers Arkansas, Arkansas State, UCLA, Kentucky, Memphis, Missouri, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Penn State, Texas A&M and Utah State.
He has also taken unofficial visits to Arkansas, Notre Dame, Florida, Tennessee, Duke and Vanderbilt.
