New Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and staff signed five junior college prospects for the 2013 class earlier this week. On Thursday, they picked up a big commitment from a Class of 2014 in-state prospect in the form of four-star defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson (El Dorado, Ark.).
“(Bielema) is a defensive coach and I am a defensive tackle,” Jackson told Otis Kirk of Hawgs247. “That played a big part in my decision. I called him and he was excited.”
Jackson is a four-star prospect according to the recruiting industry-generated 247Composite.
