The new Arkansas football coaching staff has announced its intention to recruit the lower half of the state of Florida very hard and they added a player from that area on Sunday morning.
Miami (FL) Northwestern safety De'Andre Coley (6-1, 185) committed to the Razorbacks after visiting with Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema near the end of his official visit.
"I'm just excited and ready to be a Razorback," Coley said. "This place is fantastic."
Coley, who chose Arkansas over TCU, expounded on his experience in Fayetteville this weekend.
"I had a great time with the coaches, the players and the fans and especially at the Catfish Hole – which was my favorite part about the trip," Coley said. "The fans here have such passion for their school and I want to be a part of that."
Coley, targeted by Arkansas linebacker coach Randy Shannon, was hosted by Arkansas linebacker A.J. Turner.
"He was great and answered every question that I had," Coley said. "He told me how he came and worked hard and ended up playing and even starting by the end of the season. He said it is about working hard and getting better every day on this level."
