Arkansas Recruiting: Jared Cornelius Commits To The Razorbacks!

Wide Receiver, 6'1"-6'2", 175-185 lbs., Shreveport, Louisiana

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Make it five commitments from Louisiana for the Arkansas class of 2014.  Shreveport's Jared Cornelius committed to the Hogs on Friday, and now a solid third of Arkansas' class is from Louisiana. I don't recall that ever happening before, at least since I've followed Arkansas recruiting.

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:

This leaves Arkansas with 10 more slots to fill if all the current commitments stick.
