“First off I want to thank God for blessing me with the amazing opportunity. I want to thank the University of Arkansas for taking me in with open arms. I want to make sure I’m making the right decision for me and my family for the next stage in my life…with that that being said I will be de-committing from the University of Arkansas and reopening my recruitment.. respect my decision. Thank you Hog Family.”
