One of Arkansas' biggest off-season questions has been answered with the announcement that Jonathan Williams will return to Arkansas for his senior season.

This is obviously fantastic news for Razorback fans as it means the Hogs will once again feature both Williams and Alex Collins, who both gained over 1,000 rushing yards this season. They were the only tandem of running backs across the country to reach that mark this year. It will mean more hype for the program heading into next season since now Brey Cook could be the only meaningful offensive starter not returning.

Williams so far has rushed for 2,216 yards at Arkansas, good for 11th in school history. His 5.79 yards per carry ranks sixth in the program's record books.

He did apply for an evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board, but has made the decision to remain in Fayettevillle.
