Razorbacks Target St. Louis Duo

The St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College High School duo of defensive lineman Armon Watts (6-6, 275) and offensive lineman Brian Wallace (6-6, 295) will take unofficial visits to Arkansas this weekend.

The Razorbacks are trying to hit a double in land of the Cardinals.

Arkansas will host the St. Louis (Mo.) Christian Brothers College High duo of offensive lineman Brian Wallace (6-6, 295) and defensive lineman Armon Watts (6-5, 275) this weekend on official visits.

"I am coming down to Fayetteville on Friday morning and I think Brian is getting there on Saturday," Watts said. "I've been down there once before for camp when I got my offer, but I am looking forward to checking out everything this time."

Watts has a top three of Arkansas, Syracuse and Wisconsin among the dozen or so offers that he had gotten.

"Arkansas is the only place I have been to see so far, but Syracuse is still in the mix and Wisconsin is still in the mix," Watts said. "I am kind of waiting around and seeing who else offers. I have a lot of family in Tennessee and have been down there a lot so it would be nice if they do offer."

Watts was last in Arkansas for the Razorbacks' Elite Camp hosted by head coach Bret Bielema on July 19.

"I really felt like I had a great connection with the Arkansas coaches when I was down there and felt like I showed them what I could do and that's why I got the offer," Watts said. "I really like Coach Bielema and know that he has put a lot of guys in the NFL and that's where I want to go."

Watts has grown into a 6-5, 275-pound defensive tackle that feels good about what he can get accomplished on the field.

"I feel like I have great size and strength and that I play the run really well," Watts said. "You can always improve on being a better all-around player and that is what I am trying to do with my footwork and getting a better pass rush."

Wallace has a top five of Arkansas, Alabama, Iowa, Nebraska and Ohio State.

"He is a great football player," Watts said. "He is a great teammate and someone that a lot of schools want for a good reason."
