Rebels offer Arkansas defensive tackle

Gary McClellan (DT, Arkadelphia, AR) - One of the top linemen in the state of Arkansas has received his first SEC scholarship offer.

"Gary got an offer in the mail from Ole Miss. Oklahoma State called and told us that they are really interested. They are inquiring about him coming to their football camp. We visited Arkansas for their Jr Day, but they have not offered Gary yet. Those three schools are the ones that are the most interested in him right now," noted Gary McClellan (Sr).

Gary collected 64 solo tackles and 11 sacks as a junior. He was named All-District and All-State for his play on the field.

Which colleges are now at the top of McClellan's list?

"I am not sure. This is all new to us. We are just looking around right now. He does like Ole Miss. He told me he does like that place. Gary was really impressed with their school when he went to their Jr Day, but that is a long ways off. We have almost a year before he signs. I also know he liked what Arkansas had for their Jr Day. I told him he needs to look at the education part of it. Football is always going to be there, but he has to get his degree first."

Have any colleges scouted Gary this Spring?

"I know Oklahoma State and Ole Miss told his coach that they were coming real soon. Other than those two, I am really not sure."
