It would have been real easy to notice Dumas tight end Will Gragg anyway seeing as how he is 6-4, 245 with flowing dredlocks, but there was another reason he stoood out on Sunday at Arkansas' Football Camp.
It was because he was wearing a Buffalo Bills jersey bearing the name of his brother – former Razorback and current Bill tight end Chris Gragg.
Oh, and he was wearing it backwards – albeit for a good reason.
"It is a blessing just to be able to have one of his jerseys and be able to wear it and not have to wear it like a game jersey," Gragg said. "I got it in the store...I have got to make the name show. My hair – if it was turned right – would cover it so I want them to see his name."
Arkansas is among six schools – out of 45 offers – still in the running for Gragg, who is moving from Pine Bluff to Dumas as his dad Kelvin becomes the new superintendent at the latter school.
He and Hill are in Fayetteville this next few days to catch passes from Arkansas 2015 quarterback commit Ty Storey of Charleston as well as just spend time on campus with the coaches.
"Just building relationships, just getting comfortable with the new facilities, the new GAs (graduate assistants), the coaches -even more than we already have been," Gragg said. "Coach Lunney and Arkansas have been with us since the ninth grade and it is just about building a relationship with them."
It also gives Gragg and Hill a chance to talk with some potential future teammates such as incoming Razorback freshmen Bijhon Jackson and Juan Day as well as current 2015 commits Storey and Deon Stewart and Zach Rogers, who are also all here this week.
"They are doing a come-join-us type of thing," Gragg said. "They are recruiting us as hard as the coaches are. Come join us, build a dynasty program. We are looking for a place we can win."
Both Gragg and Hill have been invited to Nike's most prestigious camp – The Opening, which is held in the company's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.
"It is going to be a great experience," Gragg said. "There are 160 of the best players in the country and only the elite go. They have had some great names – guys like Derrick Henry and Altee Tenpenny and Bijhon Jackson – so I feel honored to be going.
"This is the first time that we will get to play together or compete together at least so we are going to make the most of it," Gragg added.
