North Little Rock coach Brad Bolding said that it is probable that the public will know where his former star running back Altee Tenpenny will go to college by Friday, likely to the chagrin of Arkansas fans.

“He will probably tweet it out on Friday,” Bolding said. “He will tell me when he does it and I will follow it.”

When asked his opinion on Tenpenny’s decision, Bolding didn’t offer Razorback fans much hope.

“I think he’s probably going to stick to his commitment,” Bolding said.

Tenpenny has been committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide since his junior year with no consideration to the Hogs under the Bobby Petrino regime.

But when Brett Bielema was hired in December, it was believed that Tenpenny was considering switching his pledge to Arkansas even taking an official visit to Fayetteville.

Auburn assistant coach Tim Horton, who had been recruiting Tenpenny while at Arkansas made a last second push, but Tenpenny chose not to make a visit to Auburn.

Signings will take place on Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. and Bolding said he could have as many as eight players signing to play college football in various places.

Gary Vines will sign with Henderson State while Gerald Watson will play for the Ouachita Baptist Tigers.

Kenny Howard and Javeon Williams will sign with Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kan.

Bolding said three of his players are still undecided.

Rodney Bryson and Cameron Wilson will visit Henderson State this weekend while Dionte Pearson will visit Southern Arkansas. Missouri State was in the lead for Pearson, but hasn’t been cleared to sign with the Bears. He also has an offer from Arkansas-Monticello.

Bolding said two more players could go the junior college rout but probably will not be able to sign until later.
