Golf Signs In-State Recruits Campbell and Glov
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Razorback golf team signed two Arkansas products for their 2003 recruiting class. Scotty Campbell of Conway, Ark., and Beau Glover of Sherwood, Ark., both signed letters of intent to attend the University of Arkansas.

“As a coaching staff we are extremely excited about our first full recruiting class,” Arkansas head coach Mike Ketcham said. “We felt it was important in this class to identify the better players in the area. We wanted to keep these two guys in state at Arkansas and as a Razorback.”

Campbell and Glover chose Arkansas over 30 other schools, such as Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, UNLV, Stanford and Georgia Tech.

“Scotty and Beau are both outstanding students,” Ketcham said. “Both have fantastic families and both come to us with an abundance of national exposure and experience.”

Campbell attends Conway High School and has earned honors on a state and national level. He was the 2002 Arkansas “Overall” High School State Champion, the 2001 Arkansas State Golf Association (ASGA) Match Play Champion and a three-time qualifier for the United States Golf Association (USGA) Junior Amateur Tournament with an all-time low qualifying round of 65.

Campbell also received honorable mention American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) All-America honors and was recently ranked 25th in the Titleist/Golfweek junior boys world ranking. Additionally, he was an all-state selection and a member of the National Honor Society.

Glover attends North Little Rock High School and was a three-time ASGA Junior Golf Player of the Year. He was the only golfer to win that honor more than once. Glover was also a National Player of the Year on the Winter Tour.

He tied for first at the 2002 AJGA Tournament at Shell World Golf Village and finished second at the 2002 Big I Insurance Youth Classic in Houston, Texas. At the 2002 USGA Junior Amateur in Atlanta, Ga., Glover tied for ninth. Additionally, he was also an all-state selection and a member of the National Honor Society.
