Warrren wideout and University of Arkansas commit Jarius Wright admits he has been looking around just a little bit because of the Razorbacks' coaching change.
But Wright (5-11, 180, 4.3) sounds pretty much back in the fold after official visits to Texas Tech, Tulsa and Arkansas – where he was with three teammates this weekend.
"Those other visits went well, but I just like Arkansas better," said Wright, who visited Saturday through Monday. "I am most likely going to Arkansas."
Wright says most likely because he will be one of several current UA commits visiting Ole Miss and former Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt this upcoming weekend.
Wright had 58 catches for 1,350 yards and 15touchdowns, rushed 55 times for 382 yards, returned 4 kickoffs for 168 yards and a score and returned 7 punts for 296 yards and 2 touchdowns.
He said that fact that Michigan transfer Ryan Mallett is joining commits Jim Youngblood and Tyler Wilson at Arkansas means a lot.
"That factors into my decision a lot," Wright said. "I watched Mallett a couple of times at Michigan last season and really liked what I saw. We are going to have some great quarterbacks up there."
Wright, one of four UA commits from Warren that visited this weekend along with Basmine Jones, Chris Gragg and Greg Childs, got a chance to spend a lot of time with the new UA coaches.
"It went really well and I really enjoyed myself," Wright said. "I enjoyed meeting all the new coaches."
The previous Arkansas staff had talked about Wright playing offense and defense.
He also had offers from Oklahoma, Florida, Tennessee and others.
"We didn't talk much about defense because they are planning on playing me at wide receiver," Wright said. "They showed us some film of plays that they used to run at Louisville and some different techniques. I was impressed."
