Arkansas will do its best this weekend to land a junior college offensive lineman that could step right in next fall.
Orange Coast, Calif., Coast standout Alex Losoya (6-4, 300) will arrive in Fayetteville Friday night for an official visit to check out the Razorbacks.
“I feel like I have great feet, a great punch and that I am nasty going after the guy in front of me,” Losoya said. “I know that is what Arkansas is known for and I think I would fit in well there.”
Losoya, who would have four years to play three, has already visited Colorado State and Texas Tech and has plans to visit Arkansas, Baylor and one more program.
“I am excited about visiting Arkansas this weekend and looking forward to checking out their program and seeing what all they have to offer,” Losoya said Friday afternoon. “I know I will also visit Baylor next week and one other school, but I don’t know what that one will be yet.”
Losoya was a full qualifier out of high school, but didn’t like the offers he had coming out of Santa Anna, Calif., Mater Dai High School.
“I feel like I was under-recruited and under-valued coming out of high school and my plan all along was to go to junior college for a year and then move on,” Losoya said. “Now that is working out for me.”
Losoya has enjoyed visiting with new offensive line coach Kurt Anderson, the former Buffalo Bills line coach.
“I really think a lot of him and he certainly has a great background and I think I would really enjoy being coached by him if that is where I end up."
