Lavunce Askew will be one of the most highly recruited players in the state of Arkansas in the 2008…
FCA Combine Arrives Early
Around 120 of the best junior prospects in the state of Arkansas will gather inside the Bryant Indoor Workout area for the annual event – which has previously been held in the spring at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
"Because of new NCAA rules you can't have the event on a campus or somewhere where they play and Division I coaches can not come to see it," FCA combine director B.J. Macke said. "So we started taking a look at when the best time would be to have it and we came up with the weekend because it really didn't conflict with events we were getting into like baseball and other things."
There are four junior in-state prospects the University of Arkansashas already offered in Dardanelle offensive lineman Matt Hall (6-10, 320) – who has already committed to the Razorbacks and is not expected to be on Saturday – Camden Fairview defensive end Lavunce Askew (6-3, 250) and the Warren duo of Greg Childs and Jarious Wright.
Others top prospects that the UA has shown interest include Texarkana running back Dennis Johnson, Pulaski Academy split end Cruz Williams, Fayetteville wideout Gionni Harris, Atkins RB/WR Terence Bobo, Greenwood quarterback Tyler Wilson, CAC RB/WR Joe Adams and a couple of other Camden Fairview standouts in quarterback Jim Youngblood, defensive end Lavunce Askew and running back DeAnthony Curtis.
Some others slated to attend are a pair of running backs in North Little Rock's Tim Dunn and CAC's Ryan Farr, Sylvan Hills quarterback Hunter Miller.
Below are video interviews from Hall and Askew, who both attended the U.S. Army All American Junior combine along with the Camden Fairview trio.
