We missed this over the holiday weekend because we were holidaying, but news came across that Razorback signee Jovan Pruitt is officially headed to junior college.

This isn't a huge surprise as it was widely rumored that this was a strong possibility, but it's a bummer that it's come to fruition. He was one of the higher-rated prospects in Arkansas' 2014 recruiting class.

He is reportedly going to attend Trinity Valley Community College for three semesters and enroll at Arkansas in time for spring 2016. We'll see if that works out as many juco students echo similar statements but never make it back. However, Pruitt was committed to Arkansas for a long time and was a highly rated prospect with some other very attractive scholarship offers, and the Hogs never dropped him because of his academic concerns. Hopefully, it will all work out for him in a couple of years.
