Texan is Number 14 for 2011
Petrino landed commitment number 14 for the 2011 class from Lufkin, TX. Darrell Kelly-Thomas is a 6'4", 220 lb, 4.6 40 Defensive End. He is tall and long armed. He brings tremendous athletic upside, but he'll need to add some weight to his frame in order to compete in the SEC. Luckily Arkansas has a 100 yard weight room and a great strength and conditioning coach for Mr. Kelly-Thomas. He may need a redshirt year to build that body and learn the defense. Kelly-Thomas chose Arkansas over Baylor, TCU, and Houston among others. Kelly-Thomas is the first of what Petrino hopes will be a handful of commitments from the state of Texas for the 2011 class.
