Sutton to Arkansas State

Defensive tackle Eugene Sutton Jr made his first visit to Arkansas this weekend. He now has plans to return.

The 6-foot-2.5, 270-pound defensive tackle from Shertz (Texas) Clemens said Sunday he plans to sign with the Arkansas State Red Wolves on national signing days on Wednesday. He was previously committed to Abilene Christian of the Southland Conference.

"I did not get my ACT score until late,'' said Sutton, who moved to south Texas from New York when he was 3. "I think that hurt me. I was glad to find a place like Arkansas State."

A first team Class 4A all-district player, three-year letterman and two-year starter, Sutton said his father is a native of the Saint Kitts-and-Nevis islands and the family immigrated to the United States before he was born in Watertown, N.Y.

"I like to think I am quick, aggressive and relentless," he said.
