Fantastic Visit

Arizona prep linebacker Brock Haman (6-3, 230) chats about his visit to the University of Arkansas, which he labeled fantastic.

While relaxing at the Northwest Arkansas airport on Monday morning, Scottsdale (AZ) Saguaro linebacker Brock Haman reflected on his weekend.

Haman (6-3, 230) took his official visit to the University of Arkansas over the holiday and came away extremely impressed with what he saw as the Razorbacks ripped Tennessee Tech 44-3.

"Overall, it was just a great trip," Haman said. "It was really nice coming out here and getting to see a game experience. It was fantastic and everything that I thought an SEC game would be like.

"I loved hanging around the players," Haman added. "They are great group of guys, the coaching staff is great. It was just great."

Haman, who drove 36 hours round trip with his dad for Arkansas' camp this summer, was invigorated seeing the Razorbacks in action.

"They really have a great team and with a lot of great players and the crowd is just so supportive and wild," Haman said. "I have never seen that much red in one place in all my life. It was overwhelming.

"It really is like a grand stage for college football and an exciting atmosphere," Haman said. "The SEC is big-time football."

Haman, who took an official visit to Oregon State the week before, has plans to take official trekss to UCLA and Arizona in the next couple of weeks before announcing a decision.

A recent article from the Arizona site offered up the opinion that Haman was likely to stay in Arizona to play his college football.

"I have not read that and I have definitely never said that," Haman said. "I don't know where somebody would get that from. I do like UA (Arizona) just like I do Arkansas and the other schools, but I have certainly not made a decision on where I am going."

Haman is looking forward to getting out on the field soon. He fractured his shoulder the day before preseason practice started and didn't get to see any action in his team's season opener.

"I think I am going to be out for a couple more weeks," Haman said. "I hope they clear me real soon so I can get out there. Watching all this football is kind of getting me anxious."

Haman does believe that his decision and getting back on the football field will happen at about the same time.

"I just want to take these visits and talk it over with my parents," Haman said. "They want me to make the best choice for me whether it is close or Arkansas if that is what I decide is the best for me."
