Oklahoma Gunslinger

Although Arkansas has two quarterbacks already committed, the Razorback staff intends to stay in contact with Oklahoma prep quarterback Nathan Stanley (6-5, 195, 4.7), who remains very interested in the UA.

It's no secret that the University of Arkansas already has two of the nation's top 10 dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2008 class committed and in turn are committed to them.

But it is also no secret how impressed they were this week with the performance of Tereista (Okla.) Sequoyah-Tahlequah quarterback Nathan Stanley (6-5, 195, 4.7) in Houston Nutt's Football Camp.

"I know they have the two guys committed, but they talked to me and said they want me and they are going to try to work something out to get me in here," Stanley said. "This is my third year being at camp here and I really like Arkansas. These coaches really know what they are doing, they run this thing well and it has been a great experience for me."

Stanley, who was 92-of-132 passing for over 2,300 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior, already has offers from Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Northwestern, Colorado State and Rice.

He definitely would like the Razorbacks to jump into that list.

"The coaches are all real nice and really know what they are doing," Stanley said. "I would like to work with them."

Stanley, who has a 31-inch vertical jump, showed off his strengths during the camp.

"I think I am real good mechanically and have real good fundamentals, Stanley said. "I am pretty accurate and feel like I have a strong arm."

As far as what he is working on over the summer, Stanley is pretty specific.

"I am going to increase my size and get bigger and stronger," Stanley said.

Tahlequah Sequoyah is in one of Oklahoma's smallest schools playing football, but Stanley has gotten the chance to go up against some larger schools at team camps and 7-on-7 events.

"It helps out a lot," Stanley said. "We had a team camp at Muskogee that had schools there like Edmond and Jenks and Muskogee. It really helps us get better going against the bigger schools and really pays off during the season.

Stanley and his mom will spend the next several days traveling.

"We are headed out Thursday night to visit Michigan, Purdue and Kansas State," Stanley said. "I just want to see as many schools as I can this summer."
