When Oregon offered Pine Bluff junior tight end Will Gragg late last week, his number of scholarship options grew to 16.
But on Saturday, he returned to the place that gave him the first – the University of Arkansas.
Gragg (6-4, 245), who was offered by the Razorbacks before he played his first high school game, was one of 13 prospects in the 2015 class that took unofficial visits to see the Razorbacks on Saturday.
"I always have a great time when I come up to see Arkansas and their coaches," Gragg said. "This time was no different. I had a good time and it was good to see everybody and continue building my relationship with the new Razorback coaches."
Gragg, the younger brother of former Razorback and current NFL tight end Chris Gragg, is currently planning on taking five official visits and announcing his decision Nov. 18.
Those would be to Florida State on Sept. 20, Ole Miss on Oct. 4, Alabama on Oct. 18, LSU on Nov. 8 and Texas at a date to be determined.
Gragg, ranked as a 4-star prospect and the fifth-best tight end in the country by Scout.com, doesn't presently have an official scheduled to Arkansas, but notes that nothing is set in stone.
"I have been to Arkansas so many times and will be going so many more times between now and the time I make my decision that Razorbacks fans should not get upset if I don't take an official visit there," Gragg said. "I'll spend more time there than any of the other places. It doesn't mean anything if I don't. Tell the fans not to worry and don't get upset."
Gragg enjoyed getting to hang out with the other Arkansas in-state prospects on the day and knows that the 2015 class is a big key in getting the Razorbacks back to the level it was when his brother was playing.
Arkansas has offered both Gragg and Fayetteville tight end C.J. O'Grady (6-5, 230) and showed them different sets on Saturday on how they would both be utilized to catch a big number of passes if both choose the Razorbacks.
"Coach Bielema is really stressing about how this class could be the one just like it was when Chris, Greg (Childs) and Jarius (Wright) all came to Arkansas and made such an impact," Gragg said. "He wants us all to come do it together and talks about how special that would be for us and the state."
