Boyd becomes commitment #5 for Arkansas

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Arkansas added another talented offensive lineman to their class of 2012 Wednesday night in Memphis (Tenn.) standout Cordale Boyd.

"I came up to Fayetteville last month and just loved it," Boyd told HawgsIllustrated.com. "I loved the coaches, the weight room, the academics and the whole atmosphere. Right away, once I got there, it just felt like home. Coach (Bobby) Petrino and his staff just made me feel so wanted and this is where I want to spend the next five years."

The Razorbacks haven't dipped into Tennessee for a player the past few years but from the sound of it, they have a foothold in the current class in Boyd.

"There had been so many schools, but none of them really moved me like Arkansas," he said. "I know Arkansas is where I am supposed to be."

The 6-foot-3, 300 pound offensive lineman had scholarship offers from Vanderbilt and Memphis and was receiving interest from several other SEC programs. He is the fifth commitment overall for Arkansas in this class and second along the offensive line.
