Jackson Gives Arkansas 3 for 2015

Arkansas moved its number of 2015 commits to three on Saturday when Conway offensive lineman Colton Jackson (6-6, 290) pledged to sign with the Razorbacks.

Conway offensive lineman Colton Jackson has confirmed that he has committed to his home state team.

Jackson (6-6, 290) got an offer from Arkansas after his work in camp on Friday and needed only a day to think things over.

"I grew up loving the Razorbacks," Jackson said. "They have great coaches and great facilities. It is just a great place."

Jackson has added 50 pounds of muscle since the end of the 2012 football season after giving up basketball and hitting the weight room and concentrating solely on football.

"It's been a great deal for me," Jackson said. "I have really gotten bigger and stronger and think my best days are ahead of me."

Jackson had earlier gotten an offer from Central Arkansas and has also been drawing interest from Arkansas State and Memphis.

He joins Charleston quarterback Ty Storey (6-3, 222) and Hebron (Texas) offensive lineman Zach Rogers (6-4, 290) as 2015 commits for the Razorbacks.
