Dodge City, Kan., quarterback Kale Pick was one of Arkansas' earliest commitments, pledging to the Razorbacks back on May 26. But now after months of debating, the 6-foot-1, 198-pound three-star prospect has decided to call an audible.
"Kale opened up his recruitment last night," Pick's father, Mark Pick, told Rivals.com late last night.
It's been an interesting few months so far for Pick to say the least.

Pick got off to a great start on his senior season, but saw it abruptly end when he suffered a season-ending injury to his throwing hand. The injury occurred next to the ulnar collateral ligament on the thumb of his throwing hand, and it ended up being a small bone fracture. The recovery period was expected to be about 12 weeks, and Pick is already well into rehab.
"We were going into the third quarter, and I think he had 255 yards the first half on 15 attempts and four touchdowns, and actually a touchdown for another 56 that was dropped," Mark Pick said when describing how the injury occurred.
"In the third quarter, he was rolling out. They had the blitz on, and he threw it away. When he threw it away, he came back through. His hand got caught up with a guy and pulled the thumb back."
Before he made his original commitment to Arkansas, Pick also had scholarship offers from Colorado State, Iowa State, Kansas, Wyoming, Rice, SMU and others.
Kansas is the school that's reportedly remained most in contact with Pick.
Pick has been unavailable for comment at this point because he's at school, but Rivals.com will have more on this story soon.
