"They kept it 100 with me and they told me what was up and I just liked it."

Obviously Hatcher draws comparisons to another former Bruin named Fredi Knighten who led the Red Wolves to a conference championship.

"Yeah, I’m definitely not Fredi. I don’t move like Fredi does you know Justice is a great QB. It’s all him and after that I’m going to get a chance to work and obviously it’s on me."

While Page is signing with A-State as a cornerback. Don’t be surprised to see number three catch a few passes from his Little Rock neighbor. "I haven’t talked to him yet but I’d enjoy catching passes from him. He’s a great quarterback and I’d enjoy playing with him."

"Having a guy right down the road makes it even better and it’s just a couple of Arkansas boys doing great things."
