Brandon defensive end Kyle Strickland has verbally committed to Arkansas State.
"I've just really been thinking a lot about Arkansas State over the past couple of days," Strickland told Redwolfreport.com. "I've been thinking about how it would be a really good place for me, and how it's not too far away from my family."
Strickland had 82 total tackles and had seven quarterback sacks.
"The coaches have told me I will get a chance to play as a freshman," he said. "That would be a big accomplishment for me. The coaches all made me feel welcomed even though I haven't met them yet. They have been able to make me feel really good about myself, and I just have a ton of respect for them."
