Eaton Holding Off Decision

Eaton Holding Off Decision

For a little while it looked like one of the Arkansas State Red Wolves' main targets – in more ways that one – might have slipped away.

Matthew Eaton, a 6-foot-4 wide receiver from Pascagoula, Miss., committed to Appalachian State, which becomes a Sun Belt Conference member next season, after an in home visit with the App State coaches.

"We were having a good time, and laughing and everything and at that time I felt like it was good for me to commit,'' said Eaton, who announced this decision via Twitter.

"But this morning when I woke up I just did not have a good feeling about it. So I talked with my mom and I made that call and decommitted."

Eaton, who visited A-State last weekend along with about 20 other prospects, said after he left he had narrowed his choices to two Sun Belt Conference rivals.

"I don't have a timetable,'' he said. "I am going to sit back and enjoy my senior year and take a little break from the recruiting."

Eaton's teammate at Pascagoula, defensive end Caleb Caston, committed to the Red Wolves during the summer.

ASU has between two to three spots remaining on its commitment list. The Red Wolves can sign 25.

National signing day is Wednesday, Feb. 5.
