Miami (Okla.) Northeastern Oklahoma A&M three-star defensive end Chris Wade took his second official visit this weekend to Baylor and came away impressed – but not impressed enough to push Arkansas out of the No. 1 spot.
"I liked Baylor, and the coaches and the town were pretty cool," Wade, who is 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, said. "But I think I like Arkansas a little bitter. There is nothing wrong with Baylor or the town, but I just the town and the coaches a little better at Arkansas."
Wade said he had a good time getting the lay of the land in Waco, Texas. He said the official visitors spent time this weekend at Guy Morriss' house eating dinner.
"We ate everything," Wade, the nation's No. 55 junior college player, said. "We had pasta, meatballs, chicken, steak and ribs. I had too much to eat. I think I gained like five pounds.
"The coaches were really cool, too. I liked them a lot. I could play for guys like that."
But as he said before, Arkansas and assistant coach Bobby Allen hold the lead for the three-star prospect.
Wade is slated to visit Kansas State this upcoming weekend. He said several of his teammates are trying to get him to come up to Manhattan with them.
"They keep trying," Wade said.
Is it working?
"Not yet," he said. "But we'll see after the visit."
