Most of the coverage of the Under Armour Game is focused on the several prospects who announced their commitments during the game, but there were actually several committed recruits who played, including Arkansas' Rafe Peavey.

Peavey started the second half and went 7-for-11 during his time on the field and led two scoring drives. Here is (suboptimal quality, unfortunately) video of his touchdown pass to Miami commit Braxton Berrios.

It's not a lot to go on, but it's enough to get the discussion energy going on Peavey's prospects to start in 2014. That still seems like a reach, but it's nice that Arkansas fans got some sort of glimpse of a positive future today. A lot of complimentary twittering about his performance.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23WPS&amp;src=hash">#WPS</a> fans should be very excited about Rafe Peavey. Showed can compete against anybody in nation. And what a throw right there for the TD.</p>&mdash; Jeremy Crabtree ESPN (@jeremycrabtree) <a href="https://twitter.com/jeremycrabtree/statuses/418887168422313984">January 2, 2014</a></blockquote>

Oh, and Rivals recruiting reporter Danny West coined the term "Raferback" today, which I think is great.
