Highly coveted QB recruit in Fayetteville last weekend

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Greenwood, (Ark.) quarterback Kane Archer was in Fayetteville last weekend at Arkansas Football’s QB camp, showing off his talent and learning from the Arkansas coaching staff and players. The 2026 highly rated QB has gained lots of interest from the Arkansas coaching staff and could continue the line of great Greenwood quarterbacks at Arkansas. QB Hit List has him ranked as the top player in Arkansas and the third highest rated QB in the class of 2026.

Throwing with arguably the best QB in the SEC, KJ Jefferson, behind you would be a lot of pressure for most, but not for Archer. The sophomore quarterback has been dealing with pressure on the football field almost his whole life. “I try not to let it [pressure] get in the way,” he told me. “At the end of the day, if you can’t go out there and do what you’re expected to do, that doesn’t matter. You gotta live up to it. It really doesn’t get in my way too much.”

Arkansas quarterbacks KJ Jefferson, Jacolby Criswell, and Malachi Singleton were all in house for the camp this weekend to watch Archer and Hogs 2025 quarterback commit Grayson Wilson throw. Archer said “KJ got excited after I threw a deep ball on a corner route. I like KJ, he’s really cool.”

Offensive coordinator Dan Enos was also at the camp, and Archer talked about how he’s been recruited since the Hogs made the switch. “I’m getting older so it’s starting to become a little more serious. There’s not a difference in how I’ve been recruited with Enos and Briles, but it is getting more serious.”

Archer will be at USC in two weeks, training with 3DQB, then plans to start his practice for Greenwood’s upcoming season. “We all want to win a state championship, and I think that’s very achievable.” Archer looks to lead the powerhouse Bulldogs to redemption, after losing the state title to Pulaski Academy last season.
