Former Arkansas baseball signee now plans to play at Arkansas State
Kam'ron Mays-Hunt, with parents Fess Thompson and Kamra Thompson, signs his national letter of intent to play baseball at Arkansas Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2017, at Bentonville High School's Tiger Athletic Complex.
FAYETTEVILLE — Bentonville two-sport star Kam’ron Mays-Hunt (6-0, 175 pounds) now plans to begin his college career on the other side of the state.
Mays-Hunt was released from letter-of-intent from Arkansas earlier this year and announced Wednesday that he has committed to Arkansas State.
He signed with the Razorbacks on Nov. 8 and was recruited as a middle infielder and a relief pitcher.
“I broke some (high school) team rules and they (the Razorbacks) released me because of that,” Mays-Hunt said.

That led to Arkansas State head coach Tommy Raffo making contact.
“I like Coach Raffo, how experienced he was and they were just really cool,” Mays-Hunt said. “I went on a visit like two weeks ago and I committed like three days after.”
Arkansas State finished the 2018 season 20-32 and loses eight seniors off of this year's team. Mays-Hunt, who also starred for Bentonville's football team as a wide receiver, has also had contact with Red Wolves football coach Blake Anderson.
“The football coach just talked to me today, but I am going to have to ask Coach Raffo how he feels about that," he said.
