Memphis University School (MUS) football standout and Arkansas commit Dion Stutts died Tuesday in an apparent ATV accident, The Commercial Appeal confirmed with Memphis University School officials on Wednesday. MUS football coach and athletic director Bobby Alston told The Commercial Appeal that Stutts was on his family farm in Batesville, Mississippi, when the accident occurred. Stutts was 18 years old.
"Our hearts are broken for the family," Alston said. "Dion was such a great young man. He had a smile that warmed your heart when you had a chance to be around him."
Arkansas defensive line coach Deke Adams, who had a hand in recruiting Stutts to the Razorbacks, took to Twitter to send his condolences when the news broke.
