Arkansas locked up Montaric Brown. The state’s top prospect is officially a Razorback. There had been some concern in recent weeks he was waffling on his commitment and considering Oklahoma State, but no need to worry. He’s a Hog.
Here’s what we wrote about Brown when he committed last summer:
Brown, according to Rivals, is the top-rated prospect in the state of Arkansas for next year. I’d like to think it’s a good thing Arkansas has been able to nab the top kid in the state of late.
The defensive back chose to remain in state over offers from top-tier programs like Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and several others. He's rated the 198th overall player in the composite ratings, and 247Sports actually ranks him 109th overall in the nation. Brown’s commitment now sits the Razorbacks at 18 for the 2017 class, which is pretty dang good considering National Signing Day is still seven months out.
He is a 6-foot-2, 172-pounder, too, and will likely bulk up a bit more in his senior season at Ashdown as well as once Ben Herbert gets his hands on him.
