Jared Cornelius Flips Back To Arkansas; Decommits From TCU

New, 3 comments

Well that was quick.

Wide receiver Jared Cornelius originally committed to Arkansas in the summer, then last week decommitted to pledge to TCU, and today the Shreveport star has flipped back to the Razorbacks.

This pushes Arkansas' commitment total back up to 18 in the 2014 class.  Cornelius is a midterm enrollee who will begin attending UA this spring.

He's listed as 6'1" and 190 lbs.

Interestingly, Bielema has not accepted the recommitment of Kweishi Brown, who also committed to Arkansas several months ago, decommitted, and then publicly admitted he wanted to recommit. However, the coaches are accepting the recommitment from Cornelius.

Here's what we wrote about Cornelius when he originally committed in August, when he was rated a 2* by Rivals at the time but since been upgraded to 3*:

Coming out of Evangel Christian Academy, one of the nation's elite high school programs, Cornelius is a 3* wide receiver on 24/7 and a 2* on Rivals (insert another snarky 24/7 vs Rivals comment here. I love our Rivals guys too. Danny and Trey don't get final say on evals.). Missouri was his other finalist, and he also had offers from Tennessee, Houston, Tulsa, Louisiana Tech and San Diego State.

Cornelius attended the late July camp on campus in Fayetteville, a camp that has produced some impressive results for the Razorbacks in the weeks since.

Here's a highlight video of him in a 7-on-7 tournament in July:
