As the Arkansas coaching staff blankets the southeastern area of the United States in search of college football recruits for the 2013 class to bring to the Fayetteville campus a 2014 prospect was looked into earlier this week. The Razorbacks inquired about Orlando area quarterback Anthony Siciliano.
Despite Siciliano’s five-foot eleven-inch height and 180 pound frame several BCS programs across the nation are interested in the pro-style quarterback. Having received no offers yet, Siciliano has reported interest from Florida State, Oregon, Penn State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Rutgers among others.
Many Siciliano comparisons have been drawn to Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel; speed, height, frame, and play making ability.
The Winter Springs High School product unofficially visited several campuses in the nation with no clear cut favorite announced but reports are he was really excited after a visit to Florida State.
In 2012 Siciliano threw for 1,015 yards with 4 touchdowns on 52 of 79 attempts. He ran for an additional 136 yards on 14 carries for the Bears.
While in Florida Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema visited another 2014 recruit, offensive lineman K.C. McDermott (Palm Beach Central High School) and linebacker coach Randy Shannon visited wide receiver Jacob McCrary.
