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.
FYI - I asked Willie Sykes via text if he was considering Arkansas. He texted back "Na." #huskers #whateverbielemahashtagsthesedays— Samuel McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) February 3, 2015
Well, the smoke cleared and... na na na na hey hey goodbye.
COMMIT! 3-star Cornerback Willie Sykes has decommitted from Nebraska and will sign with Arkansas! #WPS— The Arkansas Logo (@Arkansas_Logo) February 4, 2015
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.
