Colton Jackson Signs With Arkansas

Offensive Tackle. Conway, Arkansas.

Behind Deon Stewart there is probably not another player in Arkansas' class that is more overlooked.

Jackson held just one offer and that was from the Razorbacks. He camped at Arkansas over the summer in 2013 and was offered by Bret Bielema. He committed the very next day and shut his recruitment down after that. He officially visited the Razorbacks in December. His main recruiters at Arkansas were Sam Pittman and Barry Lunney Jr.

Arkansas really needs to add offensive tackles on the roster so Jackson is quite valuable, especially with the loss of Toby Weathersby.

Player Ratings:

247Sports- 4* with a grade of 90

Rivals- 3*

Scout- 3*

ESPN- 3* with a grade of 73

Don't overlook Jackson because of his offer list or player rating. Sam Pittman and Bret Bielema do not just offer any offensive lineman. Offensive tackle was a major need for Arkansas and Jackson is a good get for that position.
