Altee Tenpenny visiting Hogs and Tide
"I am going to Alabama's spring game this weekend," said Altee Tenpenny. "I have been waiting to get back up there for a minute. I can't wait."
Tenpenny has kept in touch with the Tide coaches on a weekly basis including head coach Nick Saban.
"I have been talking to coach Groh," he said. "I talked to coach Saban and coach Burns. I talked to coach Groh today. Coach Groh was just checking in to see how my week was going.
"When I talk to coach Saban and coach Burns they always talk to me about my position. They talk to me about how they feel about my commitment and how they think I can make a big impact at Alabama."
The elite national prospect has visited Arkansas more than once. The Razorbacks have continued their best recruiting efforts in hopes of keeping the state's top player at home. He talked about the departure of Bobby Petrino.
"It's crazy right now," Tenpenny said. "I really wasn't expecting this to happen. I have talked to him several times, and he seemed like a real cool guy. I just wasn't expecting this to happen.
"It impacts my thoughts on Arkansas a little bit, but not too much. Coaches are a major point, but I know Arkansas is a good program and a good school to attend. My coach and I are attending their practice on Friday."
