Arkansas is looking to raid the state of Alabama for a corner. According to Wholehogsports.com, Arkansas is working to land Davidsonâ€™s Gerald West. West has scholarship offers from Auburn, Alabama, Miss. State and Florida State.
West provides great speed at the corner position. His high school coach Fred Riley told WholehogSports that West is the â€œfastest kid Iâ€™ve ever timed consistently.â€
He runs some 40 times that you look at your watch and say Iâ€™m not telling him what it said. Heâ€™s just run some times that are just phenomenal.â€
West is 5â€™11â€, 160 lbs., and runs a 4.4 40-yard dash. Currently, he is not rated by Rivals.com, but Rivals quoted West as saying Alabama was in the lead for his commitment. West is ranked as a three-star by Scout.com, and is listed as the 30th best at his position in the current Scout rankings.
West should surge in both Rivals, and Scout rankings due to the fact so many colleges have evaluated him and have determined him SEC quality talent. When you hold double digit scholarship offers, you usually end up with more stars.
