The University of Arkansas football program has the commitment of coveted 4-star quarterback Malachi Singleton, and there’s a chance the Hogs could add one of his teammates in the future.

Class of 2024 athlete David Eziomume, 6-1, 200 pounds, of Kennesaw (Ga.) North Cobb, has 13 scholarship offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss, Miami, Missouri, Louisville, South Carolina and others.

He said he was a fan of teammate and offensive coordinator Razorback Kendal Briles, who plans to be at North Cobb’s spring game tonight.

“My quarterback just signed up,” said Eziomume, who has a 4.0 GPA, “I have a great interest in Arkansas. set up the attack and I like the previous performances in recent years.

Singleton, an ESPN 4-Star prospect and the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the nation, signed to the Hogs on April 25.

Eziomume caught 12 passes for 147 yards and 1 touchdown and rushed 18 times for 136 yards for the Class 7A Warriors last season.

“There’s a good chance I’ll be there soon,” Eziomume said of the Hogs.

None of the major recruiting services have rated Eziomume, but Rivals considers him a 4-star prospect. His highlight video shows someone who has the potential to be an elite recruit in his class.

Singleton told his teammate about the Razorbacks.

“He said it was different there,” Eziomume said.

The Hogs signed wide receiver Sam M’bake from North Cobb for the 2022 class. Having Singleton and M’bake in Fayetteville is attractive to Eziomume, he said.

“I’m going to have to build chemistry with my teammates, but knowing that I can feel a bit more comfortable with someone I’ve known,” Eziomume said.

Versatility describes Eziomume with schools viewing him as a receiver and running back. The Hogs see him catching balls.

“They’re signing me as a wide receiver, but Coach Briles knows I play running back as well,” Eziomume said. “He saw my Hudl tape. He said that I am a very versatile athlete. He saw the speed, he saw me going for the balls. He said I will enroll in the scheme.

Eziomume faced tremendous adversity in 2019 when his father, Boniface Eziomume, passed away.

“It was hard for me to concentrate at first, but I know he would still want me to do what I’m doing,” he said. “It gives me strength in football to know who I play for.”
