Dylan Soehner isn’t worried about the list of schools that have offered him, which sits at three schools.
The Prairie Grove (Ark.) tight end said he isn’t going to lose any sleep over whether or not the school 20 minutes east of his hometown – Arkansas – is going to offer him.
“That’d be ideal, if they gave an offer, but that’s not my thing to worry about,” Soehner said. “I’m just here to play football and work hard in the offseason. If they like me, great. If not, then somebody will.”
But don’t let that fool you. An offer from the Razorbacks would be extremely meaningful for Soehner, who has offers from Arkansas State, Illinois and Louisiana Tech.
“Kids growing up, that’s what everyone wants, no matter the sport,” Soehner said. “Everyone wants to be a Razorback. That’s definitely what I’ve wanted since I was a little kid.”
Arkansas tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. is his main recruiter, but he has talked to all of the Razorbacks’ coaches except for new offensive coordinator Dan Enos.
While he isn’t sure if he’ll have enough time to come to a camp this summer, Soehner (6-7, 265) said he would come to at least one spring practice this April.
Illinois is Soehner’s only BCS-level offer, but he said Auburn, Ole Miss and Texas want to assess him at a camp.
He has also visited Alabama, where he got to meet head coach Nick Saban.
“I ended up in Coach Saban’s office, talking to him,” Soehner said. “They sounded like they were close to an offer. It was crazy to be in the presence of someone like that.”
Although Saban has won multiple national championships, Soehner has been impressed with Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema’s history with tight ends.
“He definitely puts out a lot of great tight ends,” Soehner said. “Tight end and offensive line in general is his thing. That’s definitely a plus.”
