In what is turning into a banner season for football prospects inside the borders of the state of Arkansas, there are already a reported 21 rising juniors reporting Division I scholarship offers.
For a state that usually produces an average of 12 or so, that's a spectacular number.
It's not likely to end there, especially since versatile Morrilton standout Josh Trezvant (5-11, 175. 4.43) should soon be racking in a number of offers now that tape is getting out on his spectacular junior campaign.
"I haven't gotten any offers yet, but a lot of teams are showing interest," Trezvant said. "Arkansas is one of those, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Nebraska and Florida State are all showing interest in me."
As well they should after a junior season in which he caught 66 passes for 1,107 yards and 6 touchdowns, but also used some reverses and time at tailback to rush for 920 yards and another 14 scores.
The 4.0 student also shined on defense at cornerback while coming up with 40 tackles and several interceptions and was one of seven juniors in the state named to the 25-man Super Team by the Associated Press.
"The colleges haven't said anything specific about which side of the ball I would be," Trezvant said. "They just see me as an athlete. I will just take it as it comes. I'm good with wherever the team needs me."
Trezvant helped lead his team to the Class AAAA state championship game before falling to Greenwood and then bounced over to basketball and helped lead his team to the state quarterfinals before falling to eventual state champion Blytheville.
"We had very good years in both sports, but lost to the team that has won it in both football and basketball," Trezvant said. "Maybe next year we can be the last team standing."
Trezvant is hoping to make it up for Arkansas' next junior day on April 15 and then will get a chance to get before the Razorback coaches at the FCA Combine in early May.
"I've got offseason football and running track a little bit," Trezvant said. "I going to get to a couple of camps and combines. am going to go to the Nike Camp at Texas A&M, the Arkansas Camp and I've got the FCA combine coming up first at War Memorial Stadium."
Freddie Burton (6-3, 195, 4.5), who doubles as a wideout and safety for Morrilton, is another talented standout drawing recruiting interest from Arkansas and others.
"Freddie is getting interest from most of those same schools, including Arkansas," Trezvant said. "He's going to the Arkansas camp and the FCA combine for sure."
Trezvant is solid in every area, but plans to work on all facets of his game this spring and summer.
"I am going to be working on agility and my route running," Trezvant said. "I need to make my routes a little crisper, work on my speed and work on my catching. I want to make sure everything thrown to me gets caught whether it's from our quarterback or from the other team's."
Is Trezvant Next?
