Heading the unofficial visitors were 2014 commits Chuks Ota of Jonesboro, Jarrod Chandler of Barton, Blake Mack of Lonoke and Micah Thomas of Vista Ridge, Texas. Ota, Chandler and Thomas all committed during the summer. Mack committed last month.
On their official visit were center Tejan Koroma of Allen, Texas, wide receiver/athlete Andre Fuller from Monroe, La., and offensive tackle Daniel Keith of Florence, Ala.
"It was great," said Koroma. "I had a lot of fun."
Koroma (6-foot, 255 pounds) holds offers from Air Force, Army, BYU, New Mexico, UTEP and Arkansas State. Fuller, who plays at Neville, has offers from UL-Monroe, McNeese and the Red Wolves. Keith (6-5, 274) has offers from Wake Forest, Tulane, Georgia Southern, Memphis, North Texas, South Alabama, Western Kentucky and UAB.
The night before he arrived in Jonesboro, Fuller, who plays quarterback, showed what he can do and rushed for 74 yards and passed for 171 yards in Neville's 37-13 win over Franklin Parish. The Tigers are 6-0 on the season.
"We really enjoyed the visit," said Thomas, who is being recruited hard by Texas-San Antonio. I wish it could have been longer. It was a great college-town atmosphere."
Some of the other players on campus were defensive lineman Jarvis Cooper of West Memphis, Defensive back Jordan Dennis of Fayetteville, linemen Max Oeser and Spencer Fulshaw of Springfield (Mo.) Glendale, Jacob Wade of Strafford, Mo., and running back Bo Weddle of Carlisle.
One of the more interesting games in the state will take place in Pine Bluff on Friday. It involves a pair of Arkansas State commits.
The Lonoke Jackrabbits and standout receiver Blake Mack visit Dollarway, where Joshua Liddell, who will be moved to safety at ASU, starts at quarterback.
Berry (Ala.) running back Terrance Hollingsworth is on the roster for the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star game that will be played on Dec. 14 in Montgomery, Ala., at the Crampton Bowl
Hollingsworth is closing in on the state record for all-purpose yardage and is less than a 1,000-yards from that mark.
"I'm not worried about anything but winning," he said. "I know I am in second place, but I am a team player and that is the way I look at that."
Berry is 4-3 on the season.
Others on the Alabama roster than ASU has expressed interest in are running back Ito Smith of McGill-Toolen, safety Christian Campbell of Phenix City, and offensive tackle David Keith of Florence.
