One of the nation’s top cornerback prospects, Adonis Otey, has committed to Arkansas over several other top programs. He is the Hogs’ seventh pledge in 10 days.
Otey, 6-0, 170 pounds, of Blackman High School in Murfreesboro, Tenn., picked the Razorbacks over scholarship offers from schools like Ohio State, Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Louisville, Oklahoma, Ole Miss and others. He and several other top prospects from Tennessee visited Fayetteville on Feb. 25.
“(Arkansas) was a great campus,” Otey said “The coaching staff is great. I really liked it when I went up there. I think they’re going to be real good.”
ESPN rates Otey a 4-star prospect and the No. 30 athlete in the nation. He recorded 22 tackles on defense while having 21 carries for 131 yards, 4 touchdowns along with 6 receptions for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns.
He becomes the ninth prospect to be rated a 4-star recruit by at least one recruiting service to commit to the Hogs, with eight being from out-of-state.
