Storey Is One Happy Arkansas Camper

Ty Storey

Arkansas 2015 quarterback pledge Ty Storey (6-3, 215) just keep showing up at Razorback camps and rifling passes toward his future teammates.

If there was an award for most camps attended at Arkansas, current 2015 Razorback quarterback pledge Ty Storey of Charleston would be taking that home with him.

In fact, it wouldn't have been surprising if Storey (6-3, 215) had showed up at the Specialists Camp and the youth or junior high camps as he just can't get enough time in Fayetteville.

"I just want to try and get as much work as I can with (Arkansas offensive coordinator) Coach (Jim) Chaney before I get up here," Storey said of his appearance at three Razorback camps in seven days. "There is some stuff I have to keep working on and to help recruit a bit."

Indeed Storey got a chance to throw to Arkansas tight end commit Austin Cantrell, Razorback wideout pledge Deon Stewart, new 2016 commit Jordan Jones and Razorback 2015 targets in North Little Rock receiver K.J. Hill and Dumas tight end Will Gragg.

"It is just a fun time being out here throwing to some of these great athletes," Storey said. "We've had a good time with it.

"…It's amazing to get out here and throw to some of those athletes," Storey added. "It is fun just to watch them go to work."

Storey – who is on pace to be a mid-term graduate and thus go through 2015 spring drills with the Razorbacks - certainly was in the ear of Hill and Gragg, who have 63 offers between them.

"We tried to get out here and get on the same page and hopefully one day we will be on the same team," Storey said.

He got a chance to hook up with Smackover's Jones – the Razorbacks' first 2016 pledge who committed on Thursday after his Elite Camp performance.

"We hooked up on a deep ball early on," Storey said. "He just flew by them. He has speed and length and that's a good combination for a receiver."

Storey led his team to a 15-0 record and Class 3A state title while passing for 4,320 yards and 53 touchdowns and committed to Arkansas over Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Oklahoma State and others last summer.

He is one of nine Arkansas commits in the 2015 class after the Razorbacks added Fayetteville tight end C.J. O'Grady (6-5, 230) on Wednesday.

"We got off to a hot start with (offensive lineman) Zach (Rogers) and me and all those guys committing and now we are finally starting to get some momentum going again and hopefully it keeps going on to signing day," Storey said."

Stewart said a text exchange with Storey helped him to go ahead and commit to Arkansas.

"Yeah, he just wanted to know what made me commit so early," Storey said. "So I told him the honest-to-God truth about why I committed. I love this University, I love the coaching staff and I think this coaching staff is going to put me in the best position to be successful in life."

Storey is not ready to rest just yet as Charleston is hosting a 7-on-7 event on Saturday ahead of the high school dead period where Arkansas athletes are not allowed to go to camps or practice.

"I am ready to keep going," Storey said. "We have that 7-on-7 Saturday. I am used to this. We throw over 200 balls per day at Charleston so I guess I am ready to go."
