Arkansas added pledge No. 19 late Monday when Little Rock Parkview receiver Jamaal Anderson verbally committed to Arkansas coach Houston Nutt and assistant Danny Nutt during an in-home visit.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder pulled the trigger at around 10:25 p.m. after finally receiving a scholarship offer from Arkansas.
"As soon as they came here, they just explained how bad they wanted and just how all the coaches are fighting over me," Anderson said. "They said (UA receivers coach James) Shibest wants to put me at receiver, but they also want to put me at tight end or at defensive end or possibly even somewhere else.
"He said they all want me, but they're going to stick me at receiver first.
"They just really wanted me up there."
Arkansas had flirted with offering Anderson since he was in camp this summer, but hadn't put a scholarship in writing until Monday's visit, which lasted approximately an hour.
Anticipating the offer might come that night, Anderson used an afternoon off from school Monday to discuss the possibilities with his parents.
"I always wanted to be a Razorback since I was in ninth grade, before the recruiting process even started," Anderson said. "My parents, they also wanted me to stay close to home so I just figured it would be the best situation for me."
While breaking in a sophomore quarterback at Parkview this fall, Anderson caught 30 passes for 430 yards and six touchdowns in just eight games, missing two with a slight concussion.
In a 47-28 loss against eventual Class AAAAA state champ Little Rock Central, Anderson had six receptions for 166 yards and three touchdowns.
Anderson chose Arkansas over Alabama, Colorado, Florida and Ole Miss.
