Trezvant's Tale

Although a conflict will keep him from attending next week's Arkansas football camp, Morrilton star Josh Trezvant (5-11, 175, 4.45) has plans to be at the second one and hopes that results in a scholarship offer from the Razorbacks.

Because of a school-sponsored trip he is going on, Morrilton star Josh Trezvant won't be able to make it to next week's University of Arkansas Football Camp.

But the do-it-all player - considered one of the top 10 prospects by Hawgs Illustrated in what is a loaded year in-state - does have plans to be at the UA's Senior Camps July 22-23, at which point it wouldn't be surprising to see him get an offer from the University of Arkansas.

"I was hoping to come to there, but we've got a school trip I'll be on that is going on at the same time they are starting that camp," Trezvant said. "So I am planning on just coming up for the Seniors Camp. I am looking forward to it."

Trezvant (5-11, 175, 4.45) led Morrilton to the Class AAAA state championship game last fall before the Devil Dogs fell 35-32 to Greenwood and its star Daniel Stegall.

Trezvant caught 66 passes for 1,107 yards and 6 touchdowns and rushed for 920 yards and 14 more scores while lining up at both wideout and tailback on offense while also having 40 tackles, 3 interceptions and 9 pass break ups from his cornerback spot on defense.

In addition to that, he sports a 3.9 grade point average and has made only one B in his life.

Those type of on and off-the-field numbers had Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt stopping by Morrilton during spring practice.

"He stopped by just to watch us," Trezvant said. "I know they are interested in me and they are talking about me being a cornerback up there. That would be fine with me. I'll play anywhere a team needs me."

Although - inexplicably to some - Trezvant does not have any D-1 offers yet, he is getting plenty of interest.

In addition to the Razorbacks, Tulsa, Stanford and Kansas State have shown the most attention the Associated Press 2005 Super Teamer, one of only seven juniors in Arkansas that were selected to that 25-man squad.

"All of them have been talking to me and letting me know they are checking me out," Trezvant said. "I think I am going to get some offers this summer or during next season. I'm just going to work hard and play the best I can."

Trezvant, who is also working and playing some AAU basketball this summer, hopes to make it to the University of Tulsa's Camp on June 17.

He also participate with Morrilton in at least three 7-on-7 events at Perryville, Morrilton and Bigelow.

Trezvant knows there are a lot of people rooting for the Razorbacks to offer him a scholarship.

"I like Fayetteville and I hope that happens," Trezvant said. "Hopefully they will like what they see when I make it up to camp."
