Another Great Arkansas Experience

Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst offensive lineman Zach Hannon (6-5, 300) came to Arkansas Saturday for his fourth unofficial visit to Fayetteville this spring and summer and left smiling and just about ready to make a commitment.

High school football prospects in the United States make college commitments in very different ways.

Kansas City (MO) Rockhurst offensive lineman Zach Hannon (6-5, 300) has an idea about how hewants to make his decision public between Arkansas and Nebraska.

"I don't know how I am for sure going to commit yet, but if I decide to come down to this city – whether it be Lincoln or Fayetteville – then I am going to have my whole family down here," Hannon said. "That's probably it."

Hannon and friend Jamone Boyd (6-4, 265) – a defensive end from Lee's Summit (MO) West – made their fourth visit this spring and summer to Fayetteville.

Boyd competed in the camp while Hannon - who admits he has developed a deep love for the Catfish Hole restaurant in Fayetteville in his visits here - just looked on.



"It was a great visit," Hannon said. "I didn't really get to participate, but it is always fun coming back down to Arkansas and I loved the experience."

Is there a leader in the clubhouse?

"I'm not going to say anything like that, but I will say it is always good to come down to Arkansas," Hannon said with a smile. "That's all I am going to say."

He and Boyd have talked about committing at the same time to the same school according to Hannon.

"We have always been talking about committing together so hopefully that dream will come true and hopefully at the end of the day we will be at the same school," Hannon said.

Hannon says that his decision – which might have come Saturday had his mom been with him – will happen soon.

"It will be before August and it pretty much is just between Arkansas and Nebraska," Hannon said.

Hannon has been high on Arkansas since he first made contact with Razorback offensive coordinator Paul Petrino and that continue with meeting offensive line coach Chris Klenakis.

"Coach Petrino kind of found me out of the blue," Hannon said. "Arkansas was the first one to offer me. I like Coach Petrino a lot. I can't say enough about Coach K as well. Both are great coaches and great people."
