An Actual “Pizza Scandal” Played Role in Hog Commit Mani Powell’s Move to Fayetteville

Buckle up, folks. This is a bizarre one.

Just a little more than a month ago, Ohio native Mani Powell committed to the Razorbacks over the likes of Michigan, Missouri, Ole Miss and others.

The 6’3″ 225-pound linebacker decided that he would get a head start on his college career by not only early enrolling in January 2022, but by actually moving to Fayetteville to attend school right next door to the University of Arkansas.

Powell and his mother have moved from Canton to Fayetteville, where he will play for the Fayetteville High Bulldogs this fall.
