One Arkansas quarterback made his first ever trip to Jonesboro to check out the Arkansas State University Campus.

Greenbrier's signal caller Neal Burcham didn't know what to expect when he arrived to the Northeast Arkansas campus, but left impressed after his visit.

"It was nice," Burcham told AStateNation.com soon after he left the ASU Campus. "It was different than I expected it to be, in a much better way."

Burcham and his parents got a chance to take the tour of the campus, seeing the stadium, the student union and much more.

"We took the entire tour of the campus," Burcham said. "It was very nice."

The talented quarterback also got a chance to visit with several of the Red Wolves coaching staff.

"I spent some time with Coach (David) Gunn my recruiting coach," Burcham said. "I sat down and just talked football with the quarterback coach (Grant) Heard and then we visited with Coach (Hugh) Freeze."

Burcham was impressed with Coach Freeze. "I really like him," Burcham said. "He seems to know what he is doing, he has a plan on turning the program around."

Burcham was assured that the best player would play at Arkansas State.

"They made it clear to me that if I came to school here that I would have a chance to earn the job early," Burcham said. "They said the best player would play. If I didn't win the job then I could spend a year learning the system."

Can Burcham see himself as a Red Wolf?

"Most definitely I could," Burcham said. "I have a lot of time to wait and see what happens. I won't make a decision until after my senior season. It's definitely a viable option."
