FAYETTEVILLE — Watson Chapel athlete Kevin Compton has his eyes set on becoming a Razorback.
Compton, 6-2, 170, is a 2020 recruit who holds offers from Louisiana, Tennessee-Martin, Henderson State and others. He holds a preferred walk-on offer from Baylor. That is what he’s hoping for from Arkansas and it could be just a matter of time until he gets that from Sam Pittman.
Compton intercepted 10 passes as a junior. As a senior, he rushed one time for two yards and caught 14 passes for 361 and six touchdowns. On defense, Compton had 33 tackles, including 12 solo, one tackle for loss, two interceptions and a pair of pass breakups. He also returned 11 kickoffs for 274 yards and returned a punt 18 yards.
Compton is a natural wide receiver, but is willing to play on either side of the ball in college.
He was offered by Billy Napier’s Louisiana squad on Sept. 1 and took an unofficial there Sept. 7.
