I had heard whispers last night of Nebraska Cornhuskers Safety verbal Willie Sykes getting a lot of late love from the Arkansas Razorbacks. Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald thought it was a big smokeshow.

Well, the smoke cleared and... na na na na hey hey goodbye.

First reported by Mike Schaefer of 247Sports and confirmed by his page, Willie Sykes will be signing a LOI with Arkansas without visiting campus on Wednesday.

This could be a decent size loss for Nebraska, as I thought Sykes would be the sleeper of this class in terms of ceiling. Well, we'll have to see it from afar and in the SEC instead.
