Star City defensive tackle Austin Capps (6-4, 307) – who sported an offer from Arkansas before he entered the 10th grade - understated his sophomore season as one that was ‘just pretty good.'
If pretty good is 103 tackles, 31 tackles for lost yardage, 10 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery, college coaches no doubt can't wait to see what he does for an encore.
"I made some improvements in the off-season and I think I had just a pretty good season," Capps said. "I just tried to look for the ball and go make the tackles I needed to make."
Capps was named to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette All-Arkansas sophomore team after leading his team to a 9-4 mark, and is also rated as a four-star prospect by Scout.com.
He has his offer from Arkansas as well as interest from LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and others.
"I think some of those may offer when I go to their camps this summer," Capps said. "I'm going to go to Ole Miss, Alabama, Auburn and to Arkansas for one or two of the Razorback camps.
"I really like the coaches at Arkansas and they have great facilities," Capps said. "I think they are really going to get Arkansas going again."
He feels a kinship with new Razorback defensive coordinator Rory Segrest.
"He likes hunting and fishing so I knew we were going to get along right away," Capps said. "He's also knows what he is doing as a coach."
