FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Kiero Small took the long, sometimes tedious, road to Arkansas - including stops at military school, the working world and junior college.
The senior, however, has finally found a home with the Razorbacks, who have embraced the Baltimore native as the heart and soul of their team.
Small redshirted last year after missing most of the season with a broken foot. The 24-year-old fullback is once again healthy this season and eager to lead Arkansas' new power offense under first-year coach Bret Bielema.
Small arrived at Arkansas following the school's Sugar Bowl appearance in 2011, having spent two seasons at a junior college. He endeared himself to teammates with his work ethic and willingness to do whatever was asked, including splitting time between fullback and linebacker last season.
