Tyler Bruggman was at Arkansas the last three days as the Bobby Petrino imbroglio was unfolding and while it was a complicated situation the Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep quarterback said he had a good visit.
And he will still seriously consider the Razorbacks moving forward.
"It was interesting but the energy was still great at practice and the coaches have a great spirit so it wasn't that bad," Bruggman said.

"I talked most with coach (Chris) Klenakis and coach Paul Petrino and then coach (Jason) Shumaker, he was the one that showed us around, took us different places and so those were the three coaches I really spent most of my time with.
"They're definitely under consideration. They still have great athletes and great coaches still and a beautiful campus and facilities. That is still good and I'm definitely still considering them."
The next step for Bruggman with Arkansas is to see whether the current assistant coaches stay or if the Razorbacks hire a new coach and some or all of them are replaced.
That part of the recruiting process will have to play itself out and the four-star prospect said he's interested enough in Arkansas to remain patient and see what transpires in Fayetteville.
"It's definitely something I'm curious about because I built a good relationship with coach Klenakis and coach Paul Petrino so I'd like for them to stay," Bruggman said.
"I know the school is going to do what's best for it so whatever that is I'm interested to see where it goes from here."
Bruggman, who threw for 2,497 yards with 37 touchdowns and two interceptions in his junior season, still has lots of time to figure things out.
On Thursday, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect will visit Michigan State. Then he'll be at Purdue and Indiana on Friday and Saturday. After those trips, Bruggman will return home and he's trying to figure out a date to visit Washington State.
A decision could come soon after those visits are finished.
