Josh Tatum has a great respect for coach Houston Nutt and he is now giving a lot of thought…
Arkansas Verbal Talks of Commitment, Season
"I haven't been able to get back out to Arkansas since the opening game, but I talk to Coach Markuson every week. He calls and checks up on me. He makes sure I'm having a good season, and that I'm keeping my grades in order. He talks to Coach Glover all the time," Josh Tatum reported. "I'm solid as a rock to Arkansas. When I took my mom and brother out there on my visit those folks treated me like family. They made my mom feel very comfortable while we were there. I mean the parents of the other commitments, not just the Arkansas people." "I got to meet the other offensive linemen that committed with me, and they were good guys. Matt Hall is 6-10, 320, and Austin Eoff is 6-5, 320." "It was weird to be standing there, and this shadow walks up beside me and towers over me. I'm 6-6, 305, so Matt is a big guy. I think we're going to be good working together." "Matt and Austin play against each other during the season, and they're good friends. They're from the same area, and they made me feel very comfortable being around them." Tatum talks about Marbury's season. "We are 7-1 and having a pretty good season so far," he said. "Our only loss is to Calera." "We have been opening up holes for Ronnie Johnson, which is starting to hear from several colleges. It has been fun not having to worry about who is going to offer me and all that kind of stuff. It takes a lot of pressure off when you know you have a home." Josh Tatum has graded out in every game at 90-to-91 percent, and he reports 18 pancakes on the season. ScoutSouth.com asked Tatum about other competition he had faced this season. "The best guy I have faced is in practice," he said. "I go against Zack Peppers. Zack plays left tackle for us. We go heads-up in practice so we can push each other. He's 6-2, 260 pounds. Zack is getting some interest, and I hope he gets to play at the next level." It's a well known fact Josh Tatum loves the outdoors, as in hunting and fishing, so we asked him about his recent experiences during the first week of Bow deer hunting season. He gives us the scoop. "Believe it or not, I haven't even had a chance to go," a disappointed Tatum stated. "It has been too hot to climb a tree this year. I hope it turns off cold for three months straight." "Last year I was wearing long sleeves on Friday nights at this time, and now I wear as little as possible." ScoutSouth.com would like to wish Josh Tatum well this Bow season, and with his future as a Arkansas Razorback. Return to ScoutSouth.com front page (here).
