Arkansas picked up commitment number 14 for the class of 2014 last night when Khalia Hackett committed to the Razorbacks.

Hackett played safety in high school but is being recruited as a linebacker. The recruiting services rate him between a 2*-3* prospect, with, as what seems to be a trend, 24/7 rating him a 3* while Rivals rates him a 2*. Once again, 24/7 is our favorite recruiting service of the day.

It should be known, however, that both of them have Hackett rated as a safety, so it's uncertain how those ratings would translate to him playing linebacker.

Here's a highlight video:

Hackett chose Arkansas over offers from other BCS schools such as Wisconsin, Kentucky, Syracuse, and Georgia Tech.
