Denmark junior wide receiver Ze’Vian Capers announced on Friday night his choice of the many power-conference programs recruiting him, picking Arkansas.

Capers showed tantalizing hands and athleticism in his first two years of high school competition at South Forsyth before joining the first-year Danes program this past fall, where he thrived in Denmark’s spread passing attack. Capers had 60 catches for 1,182 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns and often made spectacular plays for big yardage, including an 81-yard score against White County that shifted that game’s tide towards an eventual Danes win.

Capers, who also plays for Denmark’s basketball team, chose the Razorbacks over programs such as Florida, South Carolina and Georgia Tech. Arkansas, which plays in the Southeastern Conference's West Division is also the alma mater of Danes head coach Terry Crowder.

Capers is the second member of county’s Class of 2019 to commit to a Power Five school, after North Forsyth’s Nicky Dalmolin committed to Duke last spring.
