Linebacker Garrett Kaufman (Bentonville, Ark.) will remain close to home after committing to play for Arkansas State, multiple sources report.
According to Rivals.com, Harvard and Georgetown also offered the 6-foot, 215-pound defender while Arkansas and Rice showed interest.
Kaufman registered solid combine figures this spring on the Nike circuit including an electronically timed 4.95 40-yard dash, 4.32 20-yard shuttle, 29.2-inch vertical and 81.48 SPARQ.
The Red Wolves have reached into five different states for their 10 commitments but still maintain a strong in-state presence with five verbals from Arkansas.
