Arkansas Recruiting Update: Toby Weathersby Decommits From Texas; Razorbacks In Play?

New, 13 comments

The 4* offensive tackle was the highest-rated commitment in Texas' class, but now he's looking elsewhere. Possibly toward Fayetteville?

Toby Weathersby is a consensus 4* offensive tackle from Houston, and after committing to Texas in March, he's officially back on the recruiting market.

Early indications seem to indicate the Razorbacks are definitely in play here. The above tweets spell that out and his Crystal Ball picks on 247 have had two picks for Arkansas today, one of which is from a Texas A&M reporter on the network. Weathersby took a visit to College Station about a month ago.

As of this writing, no official visits have been set up and we haven't heard any details from the Arkansas recruiting reporters, although Otis Kirk is the other person to make a Crystal Ball pick for the Hogs.

It's well known that offensive tackle is a priority for the rest of this recruiting class, and Weathersby would be an incredible addition if that happens.

Since Weathersby is from Houston, Arkansas' presence in the city for the Texas Bowl certainly can't hurt. Weathersby will have the opportunity to attend the Razorbacks' practices leading up to the game.

He is ranked as the No. 108 prospect in the country, the No. 9 offensive tackle nationally, and the No. 14 player in the state of Texas according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
