Liddell's Anxious To Get College Career Going

Pine Bluff Dollarway standout Josh Liddell (6-2, 200, 4.43) has stayed busy with basketball and track since he signed with Arkansas and is anxious to arrive in Fayetteville later this month and begin his college career as a Razorback.

Pine Bluff Dollarway star and 2014 Razorback football signee Josh Liddell has loved his high school years, but can't wait to start the next chapter of his life in Fayetteville.

Liddell (6-2, 200, 4.43) will do so May 25th when he arrives for the first semester of summer school at the University of Arkansas.

"I really can't wait," Liddell said. "It's an exciting time in my life and I am ready to get to Fayetteville, get with my new teammates for the workouts and get in my classes. It's like a dream come true that is becoming a reality."

Liddell is coming in as safety for the Razorbacks after doing a little bit of everything for the Cardinals.

He played quarterback this past season while passing for 1,257 yards, rushing for 1,278 more and accounting for 38 touchdowns.

He also had 45 tackles on defense and picked off three passes his senior season while intercepting 20 during his high school career – a whopping 12 as a sophomore.

"I am looking forward to coming in and competing at safety and just seeing how it goes," Liddell said. "I know there are a lot of god players up there, but I think I can come in and help."

Liddell played basketball and ran track so he didn't get a chance to make it to a Razorback practice this spring.

But he did get to see the Red-White game on television and was impressed with an improved defense.

"You can tell they are faster and are tackling better and just being a lot more aggressive," Liddell said. "I think the defense is going to be much improved this season.

"I also really enjoyed watching (tailback) Korliss Marshall make some big plays," Liddell added. "I think he is going to have a big year."

Like all signees, Liddell was sent a conditioning program from the Razorback strength and conditioning coaches.

"It basically gives you a running program to follow because they want to make sure you are in shape and ready to go when you make it to campus," Liddell said. "With playing basketball and running track, I'd have been good to go anyway, but I have followed it and will be ready."
