Jean-Baptiste Raves About Razorback Win And Visit

Arkansas linebacker pledge Alexy-Jean Baptiste chose this past weekend for his official visit and couldn't be more happier about how he went.

Of all the weekends that he could have taken his official visit, Arkansas linebacker commit Alexy Jean-Baptiste of Pompano Beach, Fla., Coconut Creek believes he picked the right one.

Jean-Baptiste (6-2, 210) was among those in attendance to see the Razorbacks down Auburn 54-46 in four overtimes Saturday before 72,008 fans.

“I had a whole lot of fun and it just one of the best weekends of my life,” Jean-Baptiste said. “That was the best game I have ever been to. The fans were just amazing. They were so supportive and so loud.

“The team refused to lose. I can’t wait to be a part of that.” 

Jean-Baptiste was able to make the trip because his 5-3 team played on Thursday night last week, notching a 64-13 win over Stranahan.

It was his third trip to Fayetteville after coming a pair of time this summer.

“I had the chance this time to just see everything about the school and not just the football stuff,” Jean-Baptiste said. “It made me know even more that it is the right place for me.

His host was Arkansas freshman T.J. Smith, who is redshirting this season.

“T.J. is a great guy and he showed me a good time,” Jean-Baptiste said. “He told me a lot of things about the school, about the team and how things go at Arkansas. 

“It was fun hanging out with him. We had a good time and he let me know everything I needed to know.”

Jean-Baptiste made it clear that he was a solid as a commit as he can be.

“There is no other place for me than Arkansas,” Jean-Baptiste said. “It is a perfect fit for me.”
