Joe T. Robinson is becoming a hotbed of talent for Arkansas, and this year Koilan Jackson is going from Highway 10 in Little Rock up the hill to Fayetteville.
Razorback fans are familiar with the Jackson family, as Koilan is the son of longtime Arkansas radio analyst Keith Jackson and brother to Keith Jackson, Jr, who played defensive tackle for the Razorbacks years ago.
But Koilan didn’t get a scholarship just because of his name. He’s a talented athlete, as you can see in his highlight video above. He was rated a 4-star prospect by some services. Here’s what we wrote about him when he committed last April:
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.
