That became a given when the team was released Friday and included Charleston quarterback Ty Storey (6-3, 215), who enrolled at Arkansas in January and will go through spring drills.
Storey, who led Charleston to back-to-back Class 3A state championships, joins Texas A&M commit Kyler Murray and Washington signal caller pledge Jake Browning as the three quarterbacks on the 14-player Parade All-American offense.
He was 294-of-447 passing this season for 4,159 yards with 53 touchdowns and just seven interceptions for a 14-0 team.
Storey also had 740 rushing yards on 150 attempts wit an additional 20 scores.
He ended his career with 154 touchdowns - which is the second most all-time by an Arkansas high school quarterback - and 12,860 yards, which is the third-most in state history.

Arkansas is hosting two official visitors this weekend - both from Louisiana.
Destrehan safety Brandon Scott (6-0, 190) arrived in Fayetteville Friday afternoon while Haynesville middle linebacker Kendrick Jackson (6-1, 240) will arrive on Saturday after playing basketball tonight. Scott, whose defensive back coach is former Arkansas standout safety/linebacker hybrid Jerico Nelson, said before his visited started that he is looking forward to the weekend.
“He is one of my defensive back coaches,” Scott said. “He has talked about Arkansas and has actually talked to my mom about it. He wants me to call him as soon as I get back.”
Scott’s mom was unable to make the trip so he plans to return home on Sunday before making a decision between his final two schools - Arkansas and Central Florida, where he visited on Jan. 16.
“My mom was supposed to come, but she has to work so as soon as I get back home I am going to talk to her about the differences between Arkansas and Central Florida,” Scott said. “And then I going to make the decision and call the coach and let him know.”
Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and Razorback assistant coach visited Smackover junior wide receiver and Arkansas pledge Jordan Jones (6-1, 170) on Friday.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban had visited the state on Wednesday too see Jones, Hope junior defensive end McTelvin Agim (6-5, 260) and North Little Rock senior wide receiver K.J. Hill (6-1, 190).
The latter two already had offers from the Crimson Tide while Jones got one from Alabama on Friday.
Jones, who had 31 catches for 779 yards and 9 touchdowns, stressed that he was still solidly committed to Arkansas.
Agim - who Arkansas has visited every NCAA allowed week in December and January - had 72 tackles with 22 tackles for lost yardage, 6 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries.
