Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE
I don't know if this is true but it feels right: defensive players with Frenchy/Cajun-y names are always awesome. It is with this knowledge that we warmly welcome El Dorado defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson to the Razorback family after his commitment to Arkansas Thursday night.
Jackson is considered a 4* player who already had offers from Ole Miss, Arkansas State, and gaining interest from several others. Since he is a member of the class of 2014, he is just a junior and still early for him to receive most of his offers. He is listed at 6' 2" and 325 lbs.
He made it official on twitter as we all would:

Jackson is Arkansas' second commitment of 2014. He is one of two highly rated in-state defensive linemen the Razorbacks are likely to go after in 2014. The other, Springdale's Josh Frazier, announced on twitter last night that he will wait and see how Bielema does in year 1 at Arkansas before making his decision.
