Mighty Titan

Frisco (Texas) Centennial athlete Lamar Jordan (6-0, 180) committed to Arkansas late Thursday night and is the 16th pledge in the Razorbacks' 2013 recruiting class.

Arkansas added its 16th commitment of the 2013 class late Thursday night when it landed a Mighty Titan.

Frisco (Texas) Centennial athlete Lamar Jordan (6-0, 180, 4.38) confirmed he has chosen Arkansas over New Mexico, Rice, Air Force, Navy and Texas State.

While he plays quarterback for the Titans, Jordan – who visited Arkansas unofficially for the opener with Jacksonville State, will be a wide receiver for the Razorbacks.

Jordan, whose sister graduated from Arkansas and still lives in Fayetteville, had a banner junior season.

He passed for over 2,400 yards and 24 touchdowns last season and rushed for over 900 more – which led his team - and 11 more scores.

Centennial had an unbeaten regular season in 2011 and finished the campaign 12-1.

The Titans (2-0), ranked No. 2 in Class 4A by the Dallas Morning News, is averaging 43 points a game after wins over Lake Dallas and Denison.

In his two games this season, Jordan is 27-of-42 passing for four touchdowns and has also run for 59 yards and two more scores.

North Mesquite junior transfer Chris Johnson has stepped in to help Jordan out with 192 yards so far in the season.

Centennial visits McKinney North on Friday night.

Jordan – who ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at TCU's camp this summer - will then drive to Fayetteville to see Arkansas and top-ranked Alabama play at 2:30 p.m.
