Rison three-star athlete for the class of 2019 and Arkansas commitment Malik Chavis talked with us about his commitment to Arkansas.
“I committed to Arkansas because it’s just something special about this place,” Chavis said. “I like what Coach Morris and his staff is doing with the program.”
Here’s the rest of my conversation with him:
Chavis thinks he has set his official visit to Arkansas.
“I think I’m going to officially visit the Alabama game,” Chavis said. “I’m really not sure yet.”
Would unofficially visit Arkansas this weekend for the North Texas game?
“No sir I won’t make it to this game.” Chavis said.
Chavis elaborated on what makes Arkansas different from the rest of the schools that recruited him.
“The atmosphere you get is what makes Arkansas better than other schools,” Chavis said. “The fan base is incredible.”
Chavis is impressed with the newly-renovated Arkansas football stadium.
“It’s sweet can’t wait to be in there soon.” Chavis said.
Chavis on if he would early enroll at Arkansas.
“I have some unfinished business at the meet of champs at track,” Chavis said. “So unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be enrolling early.”
Chavis talked about his skill sets on and off the field.
“My strengths on the field is my instincts,” Chavis said. “I’m getting better at reacting to things. On the field I’m a very vocal player and I’m a team player. Off the field I hang with all my teammates just building that bond to help us have chemistry on the field for Friday Nights.”
Chavis spoke highly of the Arkansas coaching staff.
“My relationship with my coaches are good they’re my second family.” Chavis said.
Chavis talked about what makes Rison different from other schools in Arkansas.
“Tradition makes Rison better than any school in the state,” Chavis said. “We all know the expectations that we need to be a good football team in Rison. It’s playing for your teammates. Well to me really not your teammates those guys are my brothers and my family. We hold each other accountable. We hold each other up. I wouldn’t trade them in the world for anything.”
