Altee Tenpenny is committed to Alabama, but the Razorbacks are in the mix. He's expected to make a final decision on national signing day.
Altee Tenpenny is one of the top running back prospects in the class of 2013 and an Alabama commitment, but despite that pledge, he is still exploring his options. Tenpenny, who is from North Little Rock, Ark., visited Arkansas over the weekend and told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that he had a good time.
"North Little Rock running back Altee Tenpenny said he enjoyed hanging out with his two hosts, cornerback Tevin Mitchel and offensive lineman Cordale Boyd," wrote the Democrat-Gazette's Richard Davenport. "He said the players told him the same as others and to be a Hog and stay in-state. He wants to go back home and talk to his parents and see how they liked the trip. He said the staff seemed down-to-earth and were hungry to win. He'll make his final decision on signing day."
Tenpenny is rated the sixth-best running back in the class of 2013 and the top overall prospect in the state of Arkansas by Rivals. He also recently visited Alabama, where he committed back in January of 2012. He has offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Auburn, among others.
