Well, he's from South Arkansas, LZH told him that's what the name was. Congrats to him, he's speed for sure.

The_Boot_stops_here:

Cool. No surprise. Hopefully there are 7 more to follow

Trey1981:

Congrats to Malik. I am always happy for the kids especially those that live in state and grow up as Arkansas fans. That said, can someone help me better understand this one? We are his only offer and I cannot recall a situation like this. Again, I mean no disrespect or ill will. Just trying to understand the rationale. Are we just that much better at locating and identifying talent?

I think he had a great Jr. Day and got offered. He plays in a small area probably hasn't gotten much attention.

Yes. As a matter of fact, we are. You've got to be going to Rison to get to Rison. It's like the Ferrell kid out of Fordyce. If these kids lived in a big metro area liked Dallas, there would be dozens of scouts looking at them all the time. There is just so much talent in D/FW, and it's easy to get in and out of and see multiple kids while there.

I love seeing these small town Arkansas kids get a chance.

Wooooooo Pig! Soooieeeee! Thanks for joining Razorback Nation, Malik!

He ran 4.39 at Arkansas' camp last summer, Morris is wanting speed.

And it certainly doesn't hurt that he is a tall CB, over 6'. Comes in handy vs all those big wideouts in the SEC..

jgphillips3:

Good athlete, plenty of speed and an Arkansas kid...whatís not to love?!  Welcome to the Hogs!

Players in South Arkansas are often overlooked, so I'm just happy Morris isn't doing that.

You may remember another great player from Fordyce named Bear Bryant.  He was before my time, but I hear he was pretty good.

Dark Helmet Hog:

Congrats to the kid! WPS!


1dayinthelifeofporkiepig:

I graduated from Rison & go to many of their games. Saw Chavis last year. Good looking kid. Hope he has a breakout senior year & an even better career with the hogs!

And yes, there isn't much to compare to small town football on Friday nights.

RaisinHog:

Good player with good measurables  but will deff be a project in my opinion

I'm going to try to make it down for the Rison-Fordyce game. That is one of the best rivalries in the state. I attended Rison from 2nd through 4th grade, and that was back in '67-'69. That game was already a huge rivalry.

Wildcats Forever--Forever Wildcats.

hawginbigd1:

I believe this to be one of the best in- state classes since the 08-09 class, Morris needs to have his fence builders working overtime, they need to keep these 9, 10, or 11 kids at home. Our success the past 18-20 years has come from strong in-state recruiting classes. Probably 98 was the last successful team that didn't have the base core of studs being in-state recruits.

hawgfan4life:

The good thing about Rison over many small schools is that Coach Toddy is very tough and demands players meet a certain standard.  No matter who the player is or how great they could be, they are held to that standard and expected to meet the mark.  Kid likely won't come in with a big attitude because he was spoiled being a big fish in a small pond.

forrest city joe:

The one thing this kid has is great speed.and coach Chad Morris said it best.if you don't have speed,you are chasing speed.i hear this kid ran a 4.39.that is fast folks.now the key is to develop his talent as a football player.

tusked:

Another great safety for a program that had forgotten the position the last 5 years.

And a program that's going have an NFL HOF Safety soon.

The better the safeties the better the defense.

TheRazorback500:

I deliver to Rison and all the fellows down at the local convenience store tell me Chavis is the real deal. Welcome aboard! WPS

pigture perfect:

Welcome aboard, Mr. Chavis

The_Boot_stops_here:

Chavis picked up an offer from Memphis yesterday

South Arkansas players are not overlooked. There have been a lot over the years at the UA.

Iíve been all over the country and not once have I heard anyone say UAF anywhere outside of Arkansas. The only place Iíve even seen it is in the ADG.

Oh come on. I live in central Arkansas and never have I once called it the UAF. I've also never heard any of my (large number of) friends call it that either. I only really see it referred to that in the ADG.

He has CB speed to go along with good size. In his highlights, you don't get to see how loose his hips are because as a runner, he gets north-south. Most of his highlights were RB so I'd guess that he'll have a bit of a learning curve to playing DB full time but a 6'2 player who runs a legit sub 4.5 forty time is usually somebody who's at least worth an offer and a chance.

Colton Jackson had only one offer out of high school, us. One service had him as a 4*. Malik got an offer from Memphis after our offer, so he's not a one offer recruit.

liljo:

Took the occasion to ride my Harley down to Rison today. It had been many years since I was down that way. A car wash sits where our house used to be. The new high school is really nice and the football field looks great. Wildcat Pride is seen everywhere.

The old grade school building is still standing.

Football is absolutely king in Rison. I know that community is so proud of Malik. Fayetteville will be a HUGE change. I hope he has a great career.

If you don't have capitalization and spacing, you are chasing capitalization and spacing.

I just made that up.  Carry on.
