Arkansas Adds Devon Manuel to Commitment List

Local Sports

FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas has gained a commitment from Arnaudville (La.) Beau Chene three-star offensive lineman Devon Manuel.

Manuel announced his decision on Tuesday.

Manuel, 6-8, 300, visited the University of Arkansas on March 7 for a Junior Day and was offered at that time. Manuel narrowed his list of 17 offers down to a Top 8 on May 23. That list included Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan State, Houston, Indiana, Louisiana, UCF and Iowa State. He told Hogville.net on Tuesday why he chose the Razorbacks.

“It was the relationship with Coach (Sam) Pittman and Coach (Brad) Davis,” Manuel said. “The effort they put into making a relationship with me. The family atmosphere that I felt over there.”

He’s the third offensive lineman to commit to the Hogs. He joins Wynne’s Terry Wells, 6-5, 306, and Bogata (Texas) Rivercrest’s Cole Carson, 6-6, 285.

Manuel was going to announce on June 10, but opted to postpone it until June 16. The June 10 was significant in that was his birthday.
