— Arlington (Texas) Bowie standout Ty DeArman (5-11, 185 pounds) has been to Arkansas twice recently, so it is clear that he has a lot of interest in coach Chad Morris’ Razorbacks.

After attending a prospect day in Fayetteville on Feb. 24, he was back on Wednesday to watch Arkansas’ final spring practice before spring break.

“I like Coach Morris and everything he talks about,” DeArman said. “He preaches about a lot of the same things that I’m being taught now. I also like how energetic the coaches and players are throughout the practice. The facilities are great.”

The Razorback staff offered DeArman on Feb. 11 and Arkansas joins Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas and Kansas State among 14 offers he has accumulated so far.

“I will probably make my decision in may and they are definitely in the top three,” said DeArman, who didn’t want to name his other top two schools yet.

DeArman, a three-star prospect per the 247Sports composite rankings of the top four recruiting services, is being recruited by Arkansas as a free safety after lining up at quarterback, wide receiver and safety last season.

Playing for his dad, Bowie head coach Danny DeArman, he had 40 tackles and two interceptions while being named all-state at free safety.

DeArman was 43-of-81 passing for 483 yards and 5 touchdowns. He rushed 68 times for 344 yards and 3 touchdowns.

He also caught 16 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown, and returned 5 kicks for an average of 20 yards.

DeArman would be playing for Arkansas defensive coordinator John Chavis if he chooses the Razorbacks and got to watch him guide the defense Wednesday in practice.

“I’ve heard great things about him,” DeArman said. “I can’t wait to build the relationship with him throughout this process.”
