In typical offensive lineman fashion, Kirby Adcock’s favorite part of Arkansas’ Red-White game was the grub.
“It was nice,” Adcock said. “I got to be with (head coach Bret) Bielema and got to eat breakfast in the cafeteria and got to eat after the game.”
The two-star Arkansas commit from Nashville (Ark.) was one of several prospects in Fayetteville for the Razorbacks’ annual spring game Saturday.
While the food stood out, Adcock (6-5, 280) said he also enjoyed watching the first-teamers beat the backups 39-21 in front of an announced crowd of 30,000 fans.
“It was fun watching the game,” Adcock said. “I really enjoyed it. I got to meet a couple recruits, too.”
Adcock said he met fellow Arkansas commit Daulton Hyatt, a three-star quarterback from Attalla (Ala.) Etowah, as well as top in-state target Montaric Brown, a safety from Ashdown.
Growing up in Arkansas, Adcock never had a true favorite team, but he always had his eye on the Razorbacks.
“My dad (and I), we never did have a favorite team, but we always watched the Razorbacks,” Adcock said. “We always kind of liked them more than the other teams, but they weren’t necessarily the ‘favorite,’ but I do like them.”
It’s safe to say Arkansas is Adcock’s favorite now, especially with a head coach like Bielema, who values offensive line play, and an offensive line coach like Kurt Anderson, who has NFL experience.
“I’m excited about being up there and excited to be developed by such great guys,” Adcock said. “I know that they know what they’re talking about and they know what they’re doing, so it’s very exciting to be able to get up there and be developed by those guys.”
Until then, though, he will try to develop during his final year of high school ball. Adcock said he would like to gain 10 pounds for his senior season and is focusing on getting stronger, more flexible and faster feet this offseason.
