Owasso's Keon Hatcher torn between OSU and Arkansas

RECRUITING — All-State wide receiver is committed to the Razorbacks, but really enjoyed his visit to Stillwater.

The three-star prospect from Owasso, who was an Oklahoman first-team All-State wide receiver, took an official visit to Stillwater and came away feeling very conflicted about his commitment to the Razorbacks, which he made in early August.

“When I went to OSU this past weekend, I just felt really comfortable with them,” Hatcher said. “It felt like I was at home. I hope I can feel the same way with Arkansas.”

The Cowboys came along late in his recruitment. OSU offered him a scholarship near the end of November.
