big 12 logo1 300x224 AD: Arkansas approached by Big 12SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long said Wednesday that the school was approached recently about joining the Big 12.

Long told The Associated Press that the Razorbacks are content to remain in the Southeastern Conference.

That information comes in the wake of the SEC’s announcement on Wednesday that it will accept Texas A&M as the league’s 13th member, if the school can exit the Big 12 without any pending legal issues.

Long says the SEC is prepared to move forward with 13 teams should Texas A&M join the conference. He also expected the Big 12 to approach Arkansas about joining and added that the discussions didn’t go very far when the call was made.

“That it happened, it didn’t surprise me,” Long said. “But we are committed to the SEC. It’s the strongest conference in the country and only going to get stronger.”
