Feist Checks Out Arkansas

Houston (Texas) Langham Creek quarterback Conner Feist (6-2, 212) is one of several 2013 signal callers that Arkansas is evaluating and was on hand Saturday for the Razorbacks' second Junior Day.

Houston (Texas) Langham Creek quarterback Connor Feist has been to Razorback games in Little Rock, but had never been to Fayetteville before Saturday.

He loved what he saw at Arkansas' Junior Day.

"I really like what the Arkansas program has to offer both academically and spiritually as well as what they have on the field," Feist said. "The weight room and indoor facility were great and I just feel like the whole program is one of the best in the country."

Feist (6-2, 212) passed for 2,800 yards with 24 touchdowns and just five interceptions as a junior while completing 63 percent of his passes.

He also rushed for eight touchdowns while leading his team to a 6-5 mark and into the playoffs before losing in the opening round to Alief Taylor.

Feist , who was at Arkansas' 2010 win over LSU in Little Rock, was 20 of 33 passing for 348 with four touchdowns and an interception in a game that had 1,037 yards in total offense.

"We lost 48-47 on the last play of the game in the playoffs," Feist said. "We started the season pretty good and just kind of fought through the ups and downs in the season. We have a lot of people coming back and will be working on getting better at the mistakes that held us back."

Feist feels like his biggest strength occurs before the snap.

"I feel like I can really read defenses and make adjustments to be sure we are in a play that will be successful against the defense," Feist said. "I think that my teammates respect my leadership and I think that is the best thing I have going for me."

Feist does not have any elite offers yet, but schools such as Arkansas, Texas A&M, LSU Purdue and Utah are among those schools showing interest.

"I am going to Rice next weekend for its Junior Day and it seems like they are going to offer," Feist said.

Feist has plans to come back to Fayetteville this summer.

"The Arkansas coaches want me to come to their June camp," Feist said. "They said they want to evaluate me during the camp and I am looking forward to coming back and doing my best."
