Wide receiver D'Arthur Cowan of Olive Branch (Miss.) on Sunday listed a top three, in order, of Arkansas, Mississippi State and Alabama.
His reasons for having the Razorbacks on top?
"It seems like a great school and they have a good offense I would fit into," Cowan said. "I know for a fact they will throw the ball a lot, and that's the kind of school I'd like to go to. Also, they have a great coaching staff."

According to the 6-foot-1, 172-pound Cowan, he visited Arkansas last December. To date, he also has tripped to Alabama, Memphis and Mississippi State.
"Alabama offered a couple weeks back," Cowan said. "I went up there for a seven-on-seven event, and I had a great tournament up there. They also had me doing individual workouts and I did pretty good. I talked with Coach [Nick] Saban and Coach [Mike] Groh. They liked the way I play and liked my style. They want me to come back up there."
Although the Razorbacks lead, Cowan is high on Mississippi State and Alabama, too.
"Coach [Angelo] Mirando is a great receivers coach [at MSU]," Cowan said. "I worked with him at camp and learned a lot up there. They have a great campus and my cousin [K.J. Wright] played for Mississippi State. He just got drafted. Mississippi State is actually recruiting me the hardest. [With Alabama], I just like the history. They've got a great team and a great past."
Cowan will visit Auburn on July 16, Alabama on July 17 and possibly Mississippi State on July 22. He thinks the Tigers may be next to offer (he currently has seven offers). Cowan would like to make a decision before his senior season begins.
"I'm just weighing my options right now," he said.
