Jackson Commits To Arkansas

Pulaski Robinson wide receiver Koilan Jackson (6-3, 207) committed to Arkansas on Friday and becomes the ninth commit of the Razorbacks' 2017 recruiting class.

Arkansas' spring recruiting momentum  continued on Friday as Pulaski Robinson wide receiver Koilan Jackson pledged to sign with the Razorbacks.

Jackson (6-3, 207), the son of former Oklahoma and NFL tight end Keith Jackson, becomes the ninth player to commit to Arkansas in the 2017 class.

"I talked it over with my parents and my coaches and we thought about waiting to do it until August, but then decided to go ahead and do it now because I know Arkansas is where I want to be," Jackson said. "I'm really excited about what is going on at Arkansas and wanted to be a part of it.

"It feels really good to be a Razorback and I feel like all the hard work I have put in is paying off, but I am going to keep working hard."

He also had offers from Illinois, Memphis, Army and Louisiana-Monroe as well as interest from Alabama,  Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt and Tulsa among others.

Jackson played quarterback last season at Little Rock Parkview, but transferred to Robinson for the second semester of this school year.

He had 3,000 yards of total offense and 38 touchdowns last season at quarterback for Parkview.

"I feel like my strengths are my ability to get deep and my size and jumping ability," Jackson said. "I still want to get faster and just be the best all around player that I can be."
