It was an early Friday for Shiloh Christian wideout Crosby Tuck and his teammates on Friday morning, but it certainly could pay off for him down the line.
That was when Tuck (6-1, 180, 4.43) and several other Saints got a chance to workout before University of Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt and assistants Gus Malzahn and Alex Wood.
"We came in, worked some on our passing game and just tried to show them what we could do," Tuck said.
Tuck, who has caught a whopping 142 passes for over 2,700 yards and 31 touchdowns the last two seasons for Shiloh, has a scholarship offer from Troy and will soon visit Central Florida, who has shown a lot of interest lately.
He's also been getting interest from Oklahoma State, South Carolina, Auburn, Tulsa and Washington State among others.
Tuck has plans to attend Arkansas' camp June 11-13 - where he could come out with an offer - as well as one at Tulsa and a team camp at Missouri State.
Tuck and his teammates are going through spring practice right now with three workouts left Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
"I think things have gone very well so far," Tuck said. "We been giving great effort and looking good. Hopefully we will finish out strong and then have a great summer."
That summer will include plenty of 7-on-7 work, including a tournament at Harding Academy on June 2-3, weekly competition in a league involving Northwest Arkansas teams as well as numerous other events.
"I know that there are a lot more teams competing in our local league this summer and they are going to play it at three different places - Bentonville, Springdale and here at Shiloh," Tuck said. "It will be great competition and help us stay sharp."
Tuck and his family will visit Central Florida in the near future and try to take in a few more colleges this summer.
Tuck had 67 catches for 1,443 yards and 16 touchdowns last season.
