Other than the football season, the camp and seven-on-seven is my favorite time of year from a recruiting perspective. We are going to look at five players from the state of Arkansas that have I put on a show in Dallas this weekend. It really should come as no surprise that talent from the state of Arkansas is putting on strong performances at the Pylon 7on7 tournament.
Walker Catsavis Walker Catsavis 6'4" | WR Fort Smith Northside | 2022 State AR -Fort Smith Northside-Athlete-2022
Catsavis has done nothing but improved his recruiting stock all year. Catsavis worked all over the field for Fort Smith Northside in 2020. He is a playmaker at both the quarterback and the wide receiver positions. Catsavis is a multi-sport athlete, and he shows his explosive leaping ability on the basketball court, but he also does an excellent job of displaying in the red zone. Catsavis has had no trouble stepping back onto the gridiron and hauling in highlight reel receptions. He should have no problem carrying over the camp performances to the field this fall. Scholarship offers are going to follow especially when Catsavis continues to light up the camp circuit during the spring and summer.
