Is This Guy Next?

Kentucky prep safety Winston Guy (6-3, 195, 4.35) could be the next commitment for a University of Arkansas football program that is raking them in at a record pace.

He's not just another Guy and he could soon be a future Razorback.

Winston Guy (6-3, 195, 4.35), a big, fast strong safety from Lexington (KY) Catholic, said Thursday night that he was getting close to announcing his decision.

"I think for sure in the next two days," Guy said. "My mom really wants me to go to Arkansas because she thinks they will really take care of me on and off the field down there.

"I just need to sit down now and talk with my dad now, get his final thoughts, take them in and go ahead and make my decision," Guy added.

Arkansas already has 15 commitments - five coming in the last six days - and could possibly add two more this weekend in Guy and Camden Fairview defensive end LaVunce Askew (6-3, 278, 4.8), who will announce on Saturday.

The Razorbacks add 8 commitments at this point last season.

"I'm just looking at the new guys on the computer right now," Guy said. "They have really got it going on."

Guy has a final four of Arkansas, Kentucky, Cincinnati and Minnesota with UA assistant Chris Vaughn recruiting him for Arkansas.

"I have a great relationship with Coach Vaughn," Guy said. "If I am at Arkansas, he will be like a father to me. We are really close and Arkansas was he first one to offer me and I just really love everything about it."

Guy was in Fayetteville last Saturday for the UA's Senior Camp with his mom and dad.

"We loved everything about and they really made me feel special and very wanted," Guy said. "The facilities are great, the coaches are great, it's just a special place."

Guy had just 33 tackles last season, but has been a standout while attending four camps – including ones at Arkansas, Cincinnati, Kentucky and a Nike one – the latter two of which he was named the MVP.

"My biggest strength is my speed," said Guy, who put down the 4.35 at a camp earlier this summer. "I also think I have a great vision and can see the whole field and I think the fact that I used to play quarterback helps with that.

"One of the things I do need to get better at is getting stronger, but I think getting in a college weight room will be big for that."
