Top Defensive Tackle Commits to Arkansas

One of the nation's top defensive recruits in the class of 2016, Austin Capps, verbally committed to the University of Arkansas over the weekend according to 247 Sports. He is considered the top recruit in the state of Arkansas and the number 10 defensive tackle in the country. He made his decision over offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Louisville. 


Capps is the second verbal commitment for the Razorbacks along with 3 Star wide receiver Jordan Jones, who committed back in June of 2014. His 6'4" 306 lb frame and good athleticism make him one of the more dynamic defensive linemen in the country. He still has plenty of time to grow and work on technique before stepping on campus, so his ratings still have the potential to improve. His commitment marks the start of a potential top 10 recruiting class for Arkansas in 2016.
