LaMichael Pettway will get a glimpse of his new home Saturday.
The three-star wide receiver from Nashville (Ark.) has already signed with the Razorbacks and is taking his official visit to Arkansas for their annual Red-White game.
“I want to watch how the quarterbacks and wide receivers click,” Pettway said. “I also want to see how the new offensive coordinator is and get acquainted with him.”
The new offensive coordinator, Dan Enos, has talked to Pettway on the phone.
He, as well as head coach Bret Bielema and tight ends coach Barry Lunney Jr. have been down to Nashville to watch him play basketball, but the Red-White game will be Pettway’s first chance to see Enos in action.
Pettway said he is also looking forward to seeing how the offense performs in front of a crowd.
“I want to know if they have progressed from last year,” Pettway said. “I hope they are throwing a little more.”
Standing 6-foot-4, 194 pounds, Pettway could have an immediate impact at Arkansas.
He played wide receiver and defensive back at Nashville, but his high school coach, Billy Dawson, is confident he’ll be on the offensive side of the ball in Fayetteville.
“I’ve been wrong before, but the thing with (Pettway) is that he’s got so much upside,” Dawson said. “He’s more of a down-the-field guy. He has a long body, he’s strong and he’s pretty good at high-pointing the ball.”
Those physical abilities give Pettway confidence, despite the fact that he’ll be stepping onto campus just two days after he graduates high school.
“It’ll be a big step, but I feel like I’m ready,” Pettway said. “I’m just ready to play football, honestly.”
