This Week's Storey Is Recruiting

Arkansas 2015 quarterback pledge Ty Storey (6-3, 222) of Charleston is just one of a host of talent that will be in Fayetteville as the Razorbacks host tons of 2014 and 2015 viistors and also conduct another camp.

After having a sparkling performance at last weekend's Southwest Elite Showcase 7-on-7 tournament, Arkansas 2015 quarterback commit Ty Storey (6-3, 222) of Charleston will be part of what is shaping up as banner recruiting week for the Razorbacks.

He is one of what could be nearly 20 Arkansas recruiting targets – some committed, some on the verge and others just getting into the process – that are scheduled to be in Fayetteville this week for visits and/or a Friday camp.

That includes a trio of players taking official visits in Grossmount (Calif.) CC cornerback Kweishi Brown (6-0, 170) - who will arrive first on Wednesday – as well as Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College defensive tackle Abu Lamin (6-4, 300) and Scranton (Pa.) Lackawanna CC offensive takle Jermaine Eluemunor (6-5, 315) arriving on Friday.

"It should really be fun," said Storey, who chose the Razorbacks over Alabama, Auburn and others after passing for 4,387 yards and 48 touchdowns as a sophomore.

"I will be working out with (Arkansas offensive coordinator) Coach (Jim) Chaney," Storey added. "…I am going to use it as a time to get better, learn from him and meet some of the guys that will be or might be my future teammates at Arkansas."

Storey will be up along with fellow 2015 commit Zach Rogers (6-4, 295) – an offensive lineman from Hebron, Texas along with 2014 Razorback pledges in quarterback Rafe Peavey (6-2, 212) of Bolivar, Mo., El Dorado defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson (6-2, 320) , Bentonville tight end Jack Kraus (6-5, 250) and North Little Rock tailback Juan Day (6-1, 210).

They will all be working to land commits from the aforementioned trio of official visitors as well as a host of unofficial guests.

That list is slated to include the Dallas Bishop Dunne duo of offensive lineman Jovan Pruitt (6-5, 290) and safety Peyton Hendrix (6-1, 180), Sun Prairie (Wisc.) defensive tackle and Wisconsin commit Craig Evans (6-2, 312), Washington (Pa.) tailback Shai McKenzie (6-0, 200) and the Shreveport Evangel duo of wideout Jared Cornelius (6-2, 190) and defensive tackle Chris Bradley (6-2, 250).

There's also a trio of West Palm Beach (Fla.) Dwyer standouts in cornerback Shawn Boone (5-10, 185) and wide receivers Clint Stephens (5-9, 170) and Johnnie Dixon (6-0, 175).

Four potential visitors are from River Ridge (La.) John Curtis in highly-rated Malachi Dupre (6-2, 187), safety Mattrell McGraw (6-0, 175), linebacker Kenny Young (6-2, 225) and cornerback Terrence Alexander (5-10, 180).

Three other potential visitors are Fort Pierce (Fla.) Central senior linebacker Sharieff Rhaheed (6-4, 207), senior defensive end Rashawn Shaw (6-3, 228) and junior Nehari Crawford.

There's also seven uncommitted 2015 guys slated to take unofficial visits in Conway offensive lineman Colton Jackson (6-6, 290), Lee's Summit (Mo.) Ryan Williams (6-0, 180), Huber Heights (Ohio) safety Tyree Kinnel (6-0, 190, 4.47), Shreveport (La.) Byrd tight end Michael Dunman (6-5, 245), Westerville (Ohio) South offensive lineman Rob Dowdy (6-7, 285) and a Plano (Texas) East pair of linebackers in senior Landis Durham (6-2, 206) and junior Austin Corbett (6-4, 190).

Storey and his Charleston team lost their opening game of the pool play – getting to the field late - and then only lost two of their final 10 games to finish in the top eight of the 32-team event.

"It was just better communication, better everything with my team," Storey said. "This was like the first week we have been practicing together. We are definitely getting there. We have a long way to go, but we just have to keep working."

"Me and my coach have still got to get better with my reads and checks and all that, but overall we had a good weekend and we have just got to keep working."

Several of the wins came on plays within the last minute – and a couple on his last past.

"Our guys have heart," Storey said. "They want to win as much as anybody. It shows in the fourth quarter.

"We still have to figure out what is wrong with us when we get off the bus," Storey added. "We have to come and compete better in the morning. But we worked and I am proud of our guys."

Charleston went 9-3 last season and looks to be even better this season under new head coach Greg Kendrick as former head coach Doug Loughridge, who moved on to Alma.

"I am lucky to have some great receivers snd great linemen around me," Storey said. "I'm blessed and I would do anything for those guys."
