Arkansas drops committed QB Cogswell

12/16/2012



Three-star quarterback Tyler Cogswell (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage) was set with Arkansas since his commitment in May.

When the Razorbacks went through coaching turmoil off the field and struggles on the field, Cogswell was still excited to be with Arkansas.

But after a conversation with new coach Bret Bielema, Cogswell will have to find another school. Bielema informed Cogswell he no longer has a scholarship offer from the Razorbacks.

“Yes, it’s true,” Cogswell said. “I know God has a plan for me, even a better plan. Knowing that, I know I will be OK.”

Cogswell, who is 6-foot-5 and 228 pounds, had offers from Nebraska and Hawaii at the time of his commitment to Arkansas. He is not sure if those offers still stand because Cogswell has never looked at any other school since pledging to the Hogs.

“I loved Arkansas and loved everything about the fans,” Cogswell said. “I’ll be looking for that same type of situation.”

Arkansas still has the commitment of four-star quarterback Austin Allen (Fayetteville, Ark./Fayetteville). Allen, who is 6-1 and 202 pounds, is an Elite 11 finalist and is ranked No. 4 in Arkansas.
