Little Rock Christian linebacker Preston Davis committed to be a preferred walk-on at Arkansas on Feb. 17 because of the Razorback coaches.
Davis, 5-11, 215 pounds, said defensive coordinator Travis Williams, co-defensive coordinator Marcus Woodson, and linebacker assistant coach Jake Trump played key roles in his decision to be a Hog.
He chose Arkansas over offers from Central Arkansas, Harding, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Pittsburg State, Ouachita Baptist and others.
Davis had 132 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 receiver fumble as a senior and totaled 402 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, 4 interceptions, 4 recovered fumble, a forced fumble and a pick-six during his career.
