Next month, Tenpenny will meet face to face with new head coach Bret Bielema about playing for the Razorbacks.
The running back verbally committed to Alabama, but with a new coach on the hill Tenpenny's agreement is not set in stone.
"I'm going down there, just to see how everything is, see how well me and him communicate and see how he gets the program to rally behind him," said Tenpenny.
The running back is a top pick, according to many recruiting sites.
"My phone's been blowing up lately, but I try not to think about it. I try not to give myself a big head," he explained.
One of those missed calls has an Alabama area code.
