Jackson is a 6'6", 291 pound lineman from Conway who reportedly hasn't actually played football for long but has shown tons of raw potential when he has played. According to Richard Davenport, Jackson earned an offer after a very impressive performance at a camp in Fayetteville last week.

Conway coach Clint Ashcraft spoke to Davenport and further explained why the Arkansas coaches were impressed with Jackson:

“The thing they talked to me about is the way he can bend being that big of a body,” Ashcraft said. “He can still bend his knees and get down low. That’s one of the things they’ve constantly talked about from watching him.”

This is the third commitment to Arkansas' 2015 class. His hometown UCA is the only other offer we've been able to find.
