“Man what a day to be a Hog! Not gonna sleep after this!” -Justin Stepp, Razorback Wide Receivers Coach
It’s been days, weeks and months of speculation of the Razorbacks could continue to build a foundation with another solid class in 2021 and boy have we they not fallen short to this point. About one hour ago, Arkansas received the news they had been holding onto for a while. Four-star receiver, Ketron Jackson (6’2 186) committed to be a Razorback.
The two sport athlete from Royse City, Texas chose the Razorbacks over a host of top programs including Texas (whom many said was the favorite), Texas Christian (who was the other favorite), Colorado, Oregon State, SMU, and Texas A&M.
He was the Razorbacks top target and performed well as a junior with 61 receptions for 889 yards and six touchdowns and averaged 14.6 yards per catch. The Razorbacks are quickly stockpiling a lot of talent at the wide receiver position. In the previous three classes they have signed four-star receivers Treylon Burks, Trey Knox, Shamar Nash and Darin Turner. In this class alone they have gained commitments from a four-star receiver in Jackson and four-star athlete with hopes of being a receiver in Raheim “Rocket” Sanders. It has been quite sometime since Arkansas could boast a position room this deep. Don’t forget rising junior Mike Woods who is poised to have a good 2020 campaign.
Jackson is a 247sports top 150 player for the 2021 class. The 26th ranked receiver and top 25 player in the
state of Texas. Arkansas currently ranks 21st in the country in the 2021 recruiting class.
