Bolivar High School rising junior quarterback Rafe Peavey has committed to Arkansas, according to his high school coach, Lance Roweton.
Richard Davenport, who covers recruiting in Arkansas, reported first that Peavey committed to the Razorbacks after attending camp in Fayetteville this morning.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound quarterback was also recruited by Boston College, Connecticut, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, South Florida, UCLA and West Virginia, according to his Rivals.com page.
Peavey threw for 1,734 yards this past fall for coach Lance Roweton’s Liberators, who finished 9-2 and won the Central Ozark Conference Small Division for the ninth straight season. He threw 20 touchdowns and was intercepted five times.
Peavey’s older brother, Kolton, plays at the University of South Alabama. He did not appear in a game during his freshman season this past fall. Their father, Jack Peavey, served as head football coach at Southwest Baptist University in 2005 and ’06 and is now assistant athletic director for new sports implementation and football operations at Oklahoma Baptist University.
