Arkansas is Feeling the Love

North Little Rock cornerback Jamar Love has an offer from Arkansas and the interest of several other programs.

The University of Arkansas is now feeling the Love, but the Love himself won't be rushing to judgment.

Jamar Love, the 6-2, 190-pound defensive back from North Little Rock, has been holding an offer from Arkansas for about 10 days now.

"I thought they would eventually offer, but it is relief that they went ahead and let me know," Love said. "I'm honored and it's made me feel pretty good. But the one thing I can't do now is letup."

Arkansas is his first offer, but Love is also hearing from Ole Miss, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Alabama.

"I really like Arkansas, but I'm not going to commit right away," Love said. "I'm going to let it ride a little while and consider all my options and just make the right decision."

Love got his UA offer not too long after running a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash at UA Seniors Camp back on July 23-24.

"I thought I came up there and did some good things and probably made them sure about my ability," Love said. "I feel real good about my speed and my coverage ability, but know that I need to improve my strength and need to work on not taking any plays off. I tended to drift last season and I am not going to let that happen this season."

Love had 50 tackles and 3 interceptions last year and hopes to build on those stats when the Charging Wildcats open their season by hosting Jacksonville on Sept. 3.

He will play running back and wideout in addition to his defensive duties for a team that was just 2-8 last season, but 2-3 down the stretch last season and finishing with a 16-14 win over playoff-bound Bryant.

"We were young and just learning how to win, but I think we have got it now and this is going to be a breakout year for us," Love said. "I think this is going to be a great one."
