He's not even attended one high school class yet, but Star City defensive lineman Austin Capps now has one thing that a lot of upperclassman dream of having – a scholarship offer from Arkansas.
Razorback head coach Bret Bielema offered Capps (6-4, 295) Tuesday after he finished up his work at the school's three-day high school camp and left campus.
"It's a bit overwhelming and very exciting," Capps said. "He (Bielema) told me that they really liked what I got accomplished in camp and how good I did while going up against offensive lineman older than me. Honestly I think I did pretty well and am glad they did as well."
Capps played a few games of high school ball last season after finishing up the junior high campaign while working at both defensive end and on the defensive line.
He has now been to both LSU and Arkansas camps and plans to head back to both places next month for more camps.
"There were some offrensive linemen that really impressed me at the Arkansas camp, like (Hebron, Texas, star Zach) Rogers and (North Little Rock's Curtis) Parker," Capps said. "But I felt like I really held my own and I guess the coaches did, too."
Capps thinks Arkansas has a great staff and believes they will be back in the thick of the SEC race soon.
"I think the Razorbacks are going to really good soon because they have some great coaches and I saw that Coach Bielema's winning percentage is something like .739," Capps said. "They really know what they are doing."
