Mableton (Ga.) Whitefield Academy two-way lineman Ian Geffrard announced his commitment to Arkansas on Monday afternoon, choosing the Razorbacks over Auburn among others.
The 6-foot-6, 350-pound Jeffrard is commit No. 14 for the Razorbacks in the 2023 cycle, adding to a class that was ranked No. 9 nationally by the 247 Sports Composite.
“I committed to Arkansas,” Geffrard told 247Sports before going public with his plans. He took his official visit to Fayetteville over the weekend. “My first impression of them was great, and I’ve had past interactions with Coach Pittman while he was at Georgia and he hasn’t changed since then. He was a great coach then and a great coach now.”
Geffrard also had opportunities from Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Minnesota, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Texas. The Razorbacks have everything he was looking for in a school and program.
“After seeing what Coach Pittman has done with the program, and seeing how fired up the current players were about it got me motivated to join and recruit to make the team’s class the best in the country.
“I enjoy the location and overall scene, even though it is a little far from home. I didn’t talk much with Coach Adams (the defensive line coach) before my official visit, but I spent a lot more time with him and realized I wanted him to be my coach when I play at the next level.”
