NORMAN, Okla. -- When running back Altee Tenpenny (North Little Rock, Ark./North Little Rock) listed his college favorites two weeks ago, most expected a full slate of Southeastern Conference schools.

Tenpenny has said he loves the quality of play in the SEC and four of his top six are from the conference: Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss. He didn't grow up an Arkansas fan, but the Razorbacks have been the team in most consistent pursuit for the junior.
