It hasn't been the best couple of days for the Razorbacks. Bret Bielema (and Auburn assistant Tim Horton) announced a few significant Razorback injuries and highly touted running back prospect Kevin Shorter announced his commitment to Texas instead of Arkansas, but Saturday ended strong with Jamario Bell's announcement of his pledge to Arkansas' class of 2015.

He follows in the footsteps of Byran Jones, a fellow defensive lineman from Junction City who is now a starting defensive tackle for the Razorbacks heading into his senior season.

Bell is the fourth Razorback commitment in the class of 2015. Arkansas was his only major offer so far, but according to Richard Davenport, Bell has also begun to draw interest from several top programs including Alabama, LSU, Florida State, and others.

Davenport conducted this interview with Bell about a week ago, so you can get to know Jamario a little better beyond the field.

The coaching staff was very excited about Bell's commitment:
