He came, he saw, he liked.
Arkansas 2014 quarterback commit Rafe Peavey (6-2, 210, 4.47) of Bolivar (MO) High got a chance to visit the Razorbacks for four hours on Saturday.
He the opportunity to meet with new Arkansas offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and tour the facilities – including the new football complex expected to be open this summer.
"It is just off the charts," Peavey said. "They already had some great facilities, but this makes it even more special and as good as there is anywhere in the country. I mean Holy Cow."
Peavey is a dual-threat quarterback that passed for 1,900 yards and 18 touchdowns with just three picks last season and also ran for over 500 yards and 13 more scores.
He has accumulated 17 offers, but remained strong to the Razorbacks since committing last summer.
Peavey enjoyed what he heard from Chaney, who was the offensive coordinator at pass-happy Tennessee last season before taking the job under new Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema, who was more run-oriented at Wisconsin.
"I think it is going to be a mixture of the two," Peavey said. "He started by showing me some of the run concepts they are going to use and then moved to what they are going to do in the passing game. I am very excited about what they are going to do."
Peavey said that Bielema was in Florida this weekend so he didn't get a chance to visit with him, but hopes to do so soon.
"The visit went really well and I am excited to be a Razorback," Peavey said. "I know they want me and I want to be at Arkansas."
