Arkansas high school senior Hooper Vint has chosen UTEP.  Vint had been recruited by the University of Arkansas under former coach John Pelphrey, but narrowed his choices to Arkansas-Little Rock and UTEP.  In an interview with channel 5 news in Fayetteville, Arkansas Vint discusses why he chose El Paso and UTEP.  Thanks to our old pal John Engleman for the tip.
