With much prayer and discussion I have officially switched my commitment to the University of Arkansas!! pic.twitter.com/MvrETp0hCT— Rawleigh III !2⃣2⃣ (@The3rdRawleigh) June 21, 2014
It's cool that Arkansas is using that Running Back U thing from ESPN and including a picture of recruits to use it. Nice touch.
Rawleigh Williams III committed to Ole Miss way back in April 2013, but now he's decided to be an Arkansas Razorback instead.
Williams decided to change his commitment after receiving an offer from Arkansas and a recent visit to Fayetteville. Running back is expected to be a position of priority for Arkansas this year in recruiting and Williams is the first player to commit at the position.
Williams rushed 143 times last season for 767 yards and 7 touchdowns, but also improved his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, pulling in 26 passes for 269 yards and another touchdown.
In addition to Ole Miss, Williams held offers from Duke and North Texas. He's rated a 3* player by both Rivals and 247. Rivals rates him 57th best running back in the nation and 247 rates him the 30th best.
Oh, and apparently this is going to be Bielema's new thing whenever Arkansas gets a commit. He did the same thing last week for Smackover when Jordan Jones committed. At least it's an upgrade from his old "things are looking up, up, up!"
