Multiple outlets are reporting Georgia Military College safety Tiquention Coleman committed to the Razorbacks on Wednesday during an official visit. Coleman previously committed to Wisconsin in November but switched to the Hogs after Bret Bielema was hired at Arkansas last week.

Coleman is listed at 5' 10", 194 lbs., and 4.47 40-yard dash. He has three years to play two seasons. Here is his highlight video:

In a recent interview with Richard Davenport, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's recruiting reporter, Coleman said,

"A lot of schools shy away from my size in the SEC but Coach B is giving me a chance to have the opportunity to show I can play in the SEC. I'm looking forward to that moment....He's just gave me a good opportunity and feels like I would fit in real well and contribute right away."

Various sites are reporting Coleman also holding offers from Arizona, Mississippi State, Auburn, South Carolina, Clemson, Wisconsin, and others.

Coleman is Arkansas' 18th commitment for the class of 2013.
