His Day Is Coming Soon

Arkansas tailback signee Juan Day (6-1, 205) of North Little Rock expects to be completely healthy by the time he arrives in Fayetteville to start college on May 28.

Juan Day is almost all the way back from his ACL injury.

That's what the former North Little Rock star and 2014 Arkansas tailback signee said earlier this week.

"I'm pretty much 100 percent and can do almost everything now although I am wearing a brace now," Day said. "I'm looking forward to getting up to Arkansas at the end of this month and starting this next chapter of my life."

Day (6-2, 205) is among many of the 2014 signees that will arrive for the start of the first summer session on May 28.

"I've got about two more weeks of school and then I'll go up and go to summer school and start workouts with the team," Day said. "I should be 100 percent healthy by that time and be able to go in all the summer workouts and do everything that I need to do."

Day rushed for 915 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior while splitting time in the North Little Rock backfield with current Alabama tailback Altee Tenpenny.

He had already rushed 39 times for 320 yards and 3 touchdowns and caught 4 passes for 85 yards through two games as a senior before being tearing his ACL in the first quarter of game three.

"I hated it at the time, but it really has helped me think about what is important and how you can't take anything for granted," Day said. "I am as hungry as a I have ever been to take the field and be successful for the Razorbacks."

Day, whose weight has gone from 215 to 205 since the injury, has gotten to know many of fellow 2014 signees and says they have a common goal.

"We want to be the class that gets the Razorbacks back to where they used to be and where they should be," Day said. "We want to get back on top while we are up there and want to help as much as we can as soon as we can."
