Rasner's Nearly Ready

While a family vacation to San Francisco will keep Texas prep star Ross Rasner (6-1, 200, 4.52) from being here Saturday for Arkansas' one-day camp, he'll be in Fayetteville next week and seems likely to be a Razorback commit sooner than later.

While he won't be able to make the University of Arkansas' one-day camp on Saturday as originally planned, odds seem great that Waco (Texas) Reicher Catholic standout Ross Rasner will be a Razorback commitment in the very near future.

"I'm not going to be able to make it because we are taking a family vacation to San Francisco and it turned out to be the at the same time as the camp," Rasner said. "But we are coming back and coming right up to Fayetteville next week."

It's at that point that Rasner (6-1, 200, 4.52) – who could line up at either linebacker, safety or wide receiver – will likely end his recruiting process.

"Arkansas is definitely my leader and I really can't wait to kind of it get this out of the way," Rasner said. "I am going to talk things over with my parents some more while on our vacation. I am anxious to kind of get things taken care of and look forward to a great senior season."

Rasner, who had 90 tackles last season, has seven offers from Arkansas, Tulsa, SMU, Utah, Navy, Rice and Louisiana Tech.

Arkansas and SMU have been at the top of his list with the Razorbacks at the number one spot since he first pulled into Fayetteville back in April for Junior Day and the Red-White scrimmage.

"I had never been to Fayetteville before, but as soon as I got there it just felt right," Rasner said. "I just felt very comfortable, it's a beautiful place and a great school and I was amazed at how the whole state is so supportive and very dedicated to Arkansas sports."

UA assistant Bobby Allen has been the lead recruiter for Rasner, who got his offer from the Razorbacks back during the spring.

"At first they were talking about me playing outside linebacker or safety, but they are now talking about looking at me at wide receiver and even at running back," Rasner said.

Rasner was certainly all over the field for Reicher last season while helping lead his team to a TAPPS Division III state title and a 12-2 mark.

He lined up at wideout, running back and linebacker.

"I started at wide receiver in what we call our 3 spot, but also lined up in the backfield a lot," Rasner said. "We lost a lot of seniors, but I feel like we still should be pretty good this season. We've been working hard."
