One Arkansas athlete has a familiar relationship with one of Arkansas State's new coaches. Go "Inside" to see what Searcy's Dezmond Stegall had to say about the hire of Gus Malzahn and his relationship with new Red Wolf Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashlee.

One Arkansas' athlete recruitment may be picking up since Gus Malzahn has been hired at Arkansas State.

Searcy quarterback Dezmond Stegall had an offer from the previous staff as an athlete probably more so than for the quarterback position.

Stegall appears to have a good relationship with new Red Wolf Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashlee, Stegall told that he hopes that relationship will continue.

"Coach Lashlee was recruiting me when he was at Samford," Stegall said. "He is very familiar with me. I spoke to him after he got hired at ASU, he told me to be patience, that he would sit down with Coach Malzahn and show him my film after he gets back from Auburn."

Stegall thinks that the Malzahn hire is a great one for Arkansas State.

"Arkansas State is a good fit for Coach Malzahn," Stegall said. "He is back home. He will do exciting things there."

Does Stegall have interest in Arkansas State if Malzahn has interest in him?

"Yes," Stegall said. "I definitely do."
