FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas has added San Antonio (Texas) Cornerstone Christian four-star quarterback Lucas Coley.
Coley, 6-2, 205, committed to the Razorbacks over 33 other offers. He announced his decision on local KSAT12 in San Antonio then tweeted out the video afterward. He chose the Razorbacks with his mom and several friends present.
“Man, it’s a very big family up there,” Coley told KSAT12. “You know coach (Kendal) Briles and Coach (Sam) Pittman they’re gonna turn that around. They bring great leadership. We’re gonna kickoff this class with a boom and go bring some championships.”
Coley becomes the second quarterback to commit in the Class of 2021. Arkansas added Little Rock Parkview three-star Landon Rogers, 6-5, 215, on April 16. Coley is rated a four-star with ESPN who gives him a grade of 80. They rank him the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and No. 57 prospect in Texas in the Class of 2021.
Arkansas will have five scholarship quarterbacks on the team this season. Seniors will be Feleipe Franks and Jack Lindsey, sophomore John Stephen Jones, redshirt freshman KJ Jefferson and true freshman Malik Hornsby.
