Bret Bielema and Arkansas have dipped their hands into Pulaski Robinson yet again, and grabbed the commitment of Koilan Jackson, a three-star athlete.
Koilan is the son of Razorback football radio color commentator and former All-Pro tight end Keith Jackson. The Jackson family has produced a number of solid college athletes over the years, including Kolian's older brother Keith Jackson, Jr, a star defensive tackle for the Hogs during the mid 2000s.
Jackson is a 6-3, 210-pounder who has played and is expected to play a number of positions for Robinson, but the Razorback staff is looking for him to play receiver once he gets to campus. He chose Arkansas over offers from Army, Illinois – where older brother Kenyon signed in February – Memphis and Louisiana-Monroe. He was also receiving interest from Alabama, Houston and others.
Here's a look at his highlight tapes and, by just watching for a few plays, you can see the kind of athlete he is. His running style, at least in my eyes, is really smooth and somewhat effortless.
Jackson is the third in-state commitment for the 2017 class and was also in Fayetteville the last two weekends, catching the Red-White spring game.
