Big Arkansas Addition
El Dorado junior defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson (6-3, 320) committed to the Razorbacks on Thursday night.

Jackson, whose joins Bolivar (MO) quarterback Rafe Peevy as 2014 pledges to the Razorbacks. chose Arkansas over offers from Ole Miss and Arkansas State and interest from almost SEC school.
"I know he was a defensive lineman in college so I know that he will be able to teach me a lot of things and get the best out of me," Jackson said. "I had made up my mind a long time ago and even though some people told me I should wait, I just don't see any reason to do so. I want to be a Razorback."
He hopes that friend Josh Frazier (6-5, 330) of Springdale Har-Ber – who was interestingly born on the same day as Jackson – will join him as an Arkansas pledge in the near future.
"I have told him that we could do some major damage at Arkansas together," Jackson said of Frazier, who has offers from Arkansas and Alabama and interest from a host of the nation's elite schools.
