Despite having several small-school offers, Tobias Enlow has decided to become a preferred walk-on at Arkansas.
The North Little Rock wide receiver chose the Razorbacks over a pair of FCS programs - Central Arkansas and Southeast Missouri. He also had offers from an FBS school (Louisiana-Monroe), another FCS school (Missouri State) and three Division II schools (Arkansas Tech, Henderson State and Ouachita Baptist).
He likely would have received more, but he tore his ACL during a preseason scrimmage and missed his entire senior year. That's why he decided to take on the challenge of being a walk-on: to prove he can play on the highest level.
"I now truly understand that all things happen for a reason and I'm blessed to have parents who told me when I found out that my senior season was lost that if I was willing to do the work to come back, they would make sure my college opportunities were not lost," Enlow said in a statement on Twitter.
"I know I can play at the highest level and I'm excited to prove it, so I'll become a student-athlete at the University of Arkansas."
Enlow joins several other in-state players who have committed to the Razorbacks' 2016 class as preferred walk-ons.
The others are Benton linebacker Ben Brasuell, Maumelle offensive lineman Tyler Hall, Farmington fullback/linebacker Justice Hobbs and Greenwood linebacker Grant Morgan.
