Omotosho Enjoys The Arkansas Air Assault

Plano, Texas, East wide receiver Adewale Omotosho (6-4, 190, 4.4) was pleasantly surprised with how much Arkansas put the ball in the air during Saturday's Red-White game at Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

Plano, Texas, East wide receiver Adewale Omotosho (6-4, 190, 4.4) knows full well that Arkansas’ reputation as a rushing offense is well-earned, but he saw plenty to like via the air on Saturday.

Under new Razorback offensive co-ordinator Dan Enos, Arkansas starting quarterback Brandon Allen was 17-of-21 for 230 yards for three touchdowns while leading his team to a 62-18 win in the Red-White game.

“I was really impressed with how the offense was running on Saturday,” Omotosho said. “I was expecting just to see primarily the run game, but you can tell from the spring game that the new OC plans to throw the ball more.”

Omotosho, who visited along with Plano East sophomore linebacker Anthony Hines, was making his second visit to Fayetteville after previously coming for Arkansas’ 14-13 loss to Alabama last season.

“It was great,” Omotosho said. “I always like coming up to Arkansas and being in that fan base. They have a great fan base and great facilities.”

Arkansas officially offered Omotosho this weekend to join Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, SMU, Iowa, Duke, Washington, Boston College, Kansas, Navy, Texas State and Arkansas State.

“Arkansas sits very high on my list, especially with them offering on Saturday, but I wouldn’t say I am planning on committing any time soon.

“My recruitment is still open and I am still kind of looking around. I do have an Ohio State visit planned.”

New Razorback running backs coach Jemal Singelton is heading up Arkansas’ recruitment of Omotosho, who had 31 catches for 582 yard and four touchdowns last season.

Plano East started its spring practice last week and will have its Spring Showcase on May 16.

“We have that coming up and then we’ll be playing 7-on-7 and going to some team camps this summer,” Omotosho said. “I’m looking forward to it and the season.”
