At some point Monday there should be another Razorback football commit in the fold.
River Ridge (LA) John Curtis offensive lineman Luke Charpentier (6-4, 300) said Sunday afternoon that he plans to make an official pledge to the University of Arkansas on Monday after sitting down with his coach.
He will do so after being n Fayetteville Saturday to take in the Razorbacks' 33-16 win over South Carolina in person.
"The City of Fayetteville was beautiful," Charpentier said. "The fans love their Razorbacks and I am honored to have the chance to play for their great program."
Charpentier has offers from Arkansas, SMU, Tulane, Southern Miss and Northern Illinois as well as interest from LSU, Alabama and Mississippi State.
But he sees enough in Bobby Petrino's Razorback program to know he is ready to end his recruiting process now.
"I knew with Coach Petrino coming in and him being a great coach that knows a lot about the game that they were going to have a bright future for the program," Charpentier said. "I watched the Florida game on TV and a lot of other games like the Texas A&M game at the Dallas (Cowboys) Stadium.
"They have got a lot of good things happening here and I want to be part of it," Charpentier added. "This team is going to be very good in the future and I see them being a championship caliber team."
His high school team is certainly that as evidence by their 10-0 record this season headed into the state playoffs.
"As far as my senior year, I think I am where I want to be," Charpentier said. "I improved a lot from my junior year and that is exactly what I wanted to do. I think all-around as a player I am learning more about the game and being smarter.
"I am also still making good grades in school and just looking forward to going to college and playing college football," Charpentier said. "This is definitely the place to do that."
Charpentier's pledge will give the Razorbacks' 14 commitments for the 2010 recruiting class – again – after Louisiana defensive lineman LaCraig Brown re-opened his recruitment last week.
Two of those are offensive linemen in Pilot Point (Texas) High's Cam Feldt (6-5, 295) and Joplin (Mo.) High's Jordan Rainey (6-5, 305).
The Razorbacks also have a walk-on commitment from Paris offensive lineman Charles Dement (6-6, 285), who plans to enroll in January.
