Arkansas Offers Greenwood Sophomore QB Noland

Arkansas hands out an offer to Greenwood sophomore quarterback Connor Noland (6-2, 185), who already has an offer the Diamond Hogs.

The Razorback football program was one of three that offered Greenwood sophomore quarterback and baseball standout Connor Noland on Thursday

Arkansas, who had already offered him in baseball, joined Kentucky and North Carolina in offering Noland for football after joining Missouri coaches in watching him workout in Greenwood on Thursday morning.

Noland was born in Arkansas before moving to Reno, Nevada and then transferred back to Greenwood in the ninth grade.

"I was born in Arkansas and love the Razorbacks so this one is special along with the baseball one from Arkansas," Noland said. "I have been there several times since it is so close and I really like what they are doing up at Arkansas.

"I have sit in on some meetings and really like the direction the program is headed and the coaches."

Noland (6-2, 185) also  has football offers from Texas A&M, UCLA, Arkansas State and New Mexico State as well as a baseball one from Northwestern. 

He is also getting interest from Stanford, Notre Dame, Florida, Oregon, Michigan State  and Missouri among others.

"I feel very blessed to have all these offers and so many opportunities," Noland said. "I love both football and baseball and don't know if I will just play football, just play baseball or try to play both in college. I have a long time to make that decision."

He could also be a high round pick in the 2019 Major League Baseball Draft.

"That's a long ways away," Noland said. "I am just trying to help my team win games right now and all of that will take care of itself down the line."

Noland split time last season as Greenwood’s quarterback and was 72-of-106 for 844 yards and 8 touchdowns with two interceptions while also running 61 times for 431 yards and four more scores. 

He transferred to Greenwood from Reno, NV, Bishop Manogue. 

His parents, grandparents and great-grandparents all attended Greenwood.
