Will Askew Stick with Hogs?

Lavunce Askew admits after his official visit to Arkansas that he is a solid commitment to the Razorbacks. He seems to have gotten a good feel for the new staff and just feels like a part of the family.

Lavunce Askew, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound defensive lineman from Fairview High in Camden, Ark., really enjoyed himself on his official visit to Arkansas this weekend.

He went as far as to say that he was going to be considered as a solid commitment to the Hogs, even though the question was not even asked.

"It was great," Askew said. "I am still a solid commit to Arkansas. I am going to be up there two days after I graduate."

"The coaches, even though they are new, seem like they have been a part of the program for a long time and the players really feel like they are all a family."

Askew was on the visit with his two prep teammates (De'Anthony Curtis and Jim Youngblood) and even though he did not want to speculate on their future he does fee strongly that they will both be playing with him in college.

While there was little doubt about Youngblood, many Arkansas fans have had a big question in their mind about Curtis.

"I do not really know," Askew began. "You would have to ask them about it. I know they sound like they really like it so far. You will have to ask them, but I would guess that they will be coming with me."

Askew had a chance to meet with the old staff about how they envisioned him in their schemes, and he enjoyed getting the chance to sit down with the new staff and hearing about their plans for him.

"They told me the same thing, except that I will be playing end and tackle. I will be playing all the way around the line," Askew informed.

"I am going to try to be like player that nobody has ever seen before. My goal is to try to get in the record books. I want to try to win the Outland and the Lombardi. O just want to be a standout and be somebody that my family and my home town can be proud of."

Despite re-affirming his commitment to Arkansas, Askew still has plans to make an official visit to Ole Miss.
