The 31-year-old Sandy, who got to participate and score a touchdown in the Arkansas Red-White football game last spring, sent North Little Rock wideout K.J. Hill a tweet on Monday.
The Cave City native, who attended his first Razorback game when he was two months old, offered Hill his spot on the team if he chose to be a Razorback instead of going to Ohio State or Alabama.

Sandy also made it to see Arkansas senior tight end commit C.J. O’Grady and Razorback junior basketball target Malik Monk of Bentonville play basketball on Friday night.
O’Grady and Fayetteville junior guard Payton Willis (19 points) led the visiting Purple Dogs to a 49-46 win over the Tigers.
Monk had 27 points for Bentonville (11-6, 5-1) while Willis - who has an offer from Mississippi State - scored the last four points of the game for Fayetteville (16-4, 4-3).

Sandy had earlier been to watch North Little Rock play in hopes of getting Charging Wildcat senior guard and Florida commit Kevaughn Allen to change his mind.

Arkansas head football coach Bret Bielema and his staff are back on campus as the NCAA’s dead period began last night.
The Arkansas coaches can talk to recruits via the phone, twitter, etc., but there are no face-to-face visits or campus visits allowed until after Wednesday’s national signing day.
Bielema will meet the media Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. to discuss the 2015 recruiting class.
The Razorbacks already have eight players enrolled and currently have 13 other prospects due to sign on Wednesday.
Arkansas is expected to add to that list in the next three days with public announcements made by Destrehan, La., safety Brandon Scott, Haynesville, La., middle linebacker Kendrick Jackson, Hill and Houston Westfield offensive lineman Toby Weathersby, who sources say has indicated to LSU that he will be signing with the Tigers.
Coffeyville, Kan., Community College wide receiver Dominique Reed (6-3, 180) says that he will announce his decision between Arkansas, Texas, Arizona State and Auburn at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.

Bielema noted on twitter Sunday how many of his former players – the number is six – were playing in the Super Bowl.
Arkansas women's head coach Jimmy Dykes spoke to the Little Rock Tip-Off Club on Monday with all three of his in-state signees in attendance.
Those are 6-1 Bailey Zimmerman of Wonderview, Conway guard Jordan Danberry and 5-5 point guard Malica Monk of North Little Rock.
Danberry is the 47th-best player in the country, Monk No. 64 and Zimmerman a three-start prospect per ESPN.com.
Dykes has also signed a pair of 3-star prospects last November in 5-9 guard Briunna Freeman of Pelham, Ga., and 6-1 forward Keriyn Swenson - of Wichita, Kan., Maize.
