I spoke with Sutherland a week ago. At the time, he said he had a top four, but did not yet want to specify which schools.
Sutherland said he's looking for a "good college environment" at a school that has "great football and good academics as well."
Two more factors stand out for Sutherland: coaches and distance from home.
"I wanna get good relationships with the coaches because they're gonna be basically my parents for the next four years," Sutherland said. "(Distance from home) kinda matters because I want my parents to come to most of my games."
Arkansas might have a leg up from a familiarity standpoint. Two of his brothers attend the school.
