Jordan Jones Signs with the Arkansas Razorbacks

Wide Receiver 6'3" 180 lbs. Smackover, Arkansas

Jordan Jones was the first player to commit to the class of 2016 for the Arkansas Razorbacks.  After a 2014 camp he was offered before the official rating services even had a chance to label him as a three star prospect.  The commitment to Arkansas came along with offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Oklahoma State among others.

The in-state prospect has always been a Razorback fan and likes Arkansas because "it's my home state and I bleed red."  It means a lot to get a recruit on the Hill and calling the Hogs, but it means a lot more when the top talent in the state chooses to stay in Arkansas and play for the Hogs.

One of the more impressive highlights we've seen on Jordan Jones actually comes from his special teams play.  Jones stands in his own endzone, and punts the ball over the head of the returner, and then beats the rest of the coverage team down the field and makes the tackle.

I doubt we'll see Jordan booming any punts on the hill, but if he wants to add his speed to special teams next season, I doubt any Arkansas fans will be disappointed.
