William Russ decided one visit was enough.
Russ committed to Arkansas on Wednesday, becoming the 17th commitment of the 2010 class. He visited the Fayetteville campus last weekend and had other visits set up to Vanderbilt, Miami and Louisiana Tech.
Russ told Hawgs Illustrated in an interview last week he has always dreamed of playing in the SEC.
"I think Arkansas had a great program that is on the rise, it's a great school that has the (landscape architecture) major that I want, it's in the SEC and close to where I live and I know there is a chance to come in and make an impact right away on both punts and kickoffs," Russ said.
Russ averaged nearly 45 yards per punt in his senior season at Evangel and had a hang time of 5.2 seconds.
"Anything that's 4.7 and up is very good and 5.0 is exceptional," Russ said. "I got timed at Chris Sailor's (kicking camp) and it was 5.2 and I think I am pretty consistent at that."
A standout at third base on the baseball diamond, Russ anticipates playing baseball for Arkansas as well. He said he has been in contact with Razorback hitting coach Todd Butler and the two coaching staffs were working out the details. High school teammates Bronson Gillam and Jeff Harvill signed letters of intent to play with the baseball team last November.
"Arkansas has a great baseball program and we've got some guys that are coming up there," Russ said. "I think both programs are going to have great success."
