Coming out of Rockdale, Texas, in 2018, Jaqualyln Crawford was a four-star recruit that had Arkansas in the mix but went with Oklahoma and promptly landed in a room crowded with star talent.
Hogs coach Sam Pittman has said he wants size and speed and Crawford brings the latter
After getting moved to defensive back, he put his name in the transfer portal and Friday announced via Twitter that he will be coming to Arkansas.

Crawford, 5-10, 175 pounds, will be on the small side of the Razorbacks’ group of big receivers but what made him a four-star recruit initially was his speed and ability to track the football.
When he was recruited, he chose the Sooners over Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M and several others.
Hogs wide receivers coach Justin Stepp obviously formed a relationship with Crawford in 2018, which is a big part of why Pittman kept him on when he was hired last December.
Crawford will have to sit out the 2020 season, but will have two years of eligibility available in 2021 and 2022.
