Gragg Making Move To Dumas For Senior Season

Arkansas 2015 tight end target Will Gragg (6-4, 245) - who just got invited to Nike's premier event The Opening and now has 45 offers - is making the move from Pine Bluff to Dumas for his senior season as his dad Kelvin takes over as the new superintendent.

One of the state's best 2015 prospects – and certainly the one with the most scholarship offers – will be playing his senior season at a new program.

Four-star tight end Will Gragg (6-4, 245) is moving from Pine Bluff to Dumas due to his dad Kelvin being named the new superintendent at the school.

Gragg – who was just invited to The Opening (Nike's most prestigious camp) – said it was a family decision with him, his dad and his mom Tenita.

"It was really tough to leave the friends and basically brothers I've made in Pine Bluff," Gragg said. "But at this point, I've done everything I had to do at the high school level. This is my dad's dream job and I wouldn't dare be that selfish enough to take that away from him."

Gragg – one of Arkansas' prime recruiting targets who says he will be on campus two or three weekends this fall - now has 45 offers and a final six teams on his short list.

"Arkansas is and always will be on my list," Gragg said. "I have a great relationship with the Arkansas coaches. I have not decided where I want to go to school and that's why I want to take the visits."

That list includes the Razorbacks along with five schools that he plans to take official visits to this fall.

The quintet of official visits will be to Texas (Sept. 6), Florida State (Sept. 19), Ole Miss (Oct. 3), Alabama (Oct. 17) and LSU (Nov. 7).

Gragg became the 122nd invitee to The Opening on Wednesday and joins his good buddy K.J. Hill – the North Little Rock wide receiver – as the only two invitees so far from Arkansas.

The event will be held July 5-10th at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, and brings together 162 high school players as well as some college and NFL stars.

"It was a great honor," Gragg said. "We get to go to Oregon, where I have never been, and spend four days with the elite players, coaches and mentors in the country."
