Because of the events at Baylor that have led to the ouster of head football coach Art Briles, Arkansas is back in the mix to land a talented tight end with ties to Northwest Arkansas.

Waco, Texas, La Vega standout Kedrick James (6-5, 245), whose grandmother Charlene Johnson-Carter is a professor at Arkansas, de-committed from the Bears on Thursday and opened up his recruiting.

James visited Arkansas twice last summer to check out the Razorbacks and visit his grandmother.

He has offers from Arkansas, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, SMU and Texas Tech among others.

James had a top three of Arkansas, Michigan and Baylor before committing to the hometown Bears on July 15, 2015.
