Metcalf officially visited Arkansas the June 10 weekend and was at Penn State this past week. Metcalf has been to Arkansas for Prospect Days as well. Following his official visit he talked about the highlight at Arkansas and Sam Pittman.
“The highlight was probably being around Coach Pittman when we were going out to eat,” Metcalf said. “Seeing that he’s just a real cool guy to be around. Got to hang out with the players, see what the college life is like, see if this is the place I want to come, and they did a great job showing that.”
His brother, Tevis, is a Class of 2024 recruit. The two want to go to same school.
“Me and my brother both have an offer here,” Metcalf said. “We want to play with each other in college and Arkansas is giving us the opportunity to do that. It just makes it a plus for them to get both of us.”
