"I wanted to see how they plan to use their backs this year," added Turell Williams. "I wanted to see what they really had to offer because I did not have a chance to really study what Nutt did at Arkansas. It was nice down there, but my parents want me to slow it (recruiting) down and focus on the season."
What did he learn about Nutt's offense, and particularly, how he is going to use his backs?
Coach Patrino comes into Arkansas as a known "passing guru", as Louisville's offense was one of the top passing teams year in and year out during his tenure there.
Does that play a role?
"It does, I am looking at a lot of things. I know Coach Patrino is more of a passing guy, but I am going to keep it cool until signing day comes and just think things over until then and watch both teams next season and see what they do."
Williams still considers himself as an Arkansas commit.
"Ole Miss is a nice school. I would not knock those guys, but right now I am still a Razorback. I am happy to be a Razorback. I just want to focus on my season and see what both of those teams do this year, and I will make a final decision when signing day comes around."
What attracted Turell to Arkansas?
"I looked at Coach Patrino, and I know he is a good coach because what he did at Louisville. He had a lot of success over there, and I know he is looking to bring in a big back. I have always liked Arkansas. At the time, my teammate Darius Winston, was going over there too which was big for me. But now, he is not committed to them anymore (laugh). It was funny how that worked out, I guess."
Williams has a few goals he wants to accomplish before heading to the next level.
"I want to show everyone in Arkansas why I am rated the best back in our state. I want to lead our team to a championship. That is the biggest thing. I just want to help turn this program around."
