T.J. Hammonds liked what he saw during Arkansas’ annual Red-White spring game.

The Pulaski Robinson (Little Rock, Ark.) four-star athlete and Arkansas commit watched as the Razorbacks’ first-team offense piled up 467 yards of offense, including 273 yards through the air.

“I’ve been to Fayetteville before, but I enjoyed it,” Hammonds said. “They threw the ball a lot and the coaches treated me special. I really enjoyed myself. I loved it.”

He said that he expects to play in the slot at Arkansas, so the performance in the Red-White game was encouraging.

The trip to Fayetteville also gave him a chance to talk to all of his future coaches, including offensive coordinator Dan Enos.

“Every time I come up there, he’s one of the first people I talk to,” Hammonds said. “We spent a lot of time talking about the offense and how I’ll fit.”

Now that he is committed to Arkansas, Hammonds is able to focus on other things, like his final season at Pulaski Robinson.

“We have two big 7-on-7 tournaments this summer,” Hammonds said. “We like to build good team chemistry, so we’ll go to Camp Robinson and spend a couple of days there. Then we have two-a-days.”

Because he doesn’t have too much going on this summer, Hammonds said he will come up to Fayetteville to visit a few times, but probably won’t participate in any camps.

While his heart is set with the Razorbacks, other schools are still checking in with him. Vanderbilt stopped by his school last week and his father wants him to take other visits.

However, Hammonds doesn’t plan to take any more. Instead, he is trying to get other prospects to join him in Fayetteville.

“I’m best friends with (Hope four-star defensive end) McTelvin Agim,” Hammonds said. “I’ve been talking to him about it, telling him to keep it local.”

Still, his No. 1 concern is his high school team.

“Sometimes I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, this is my last year,’” Hammonds said. “I’m trying to enjoy it now that the recruiting process is over. I’m trying to win a championship.”
