It's been a long time coming for T.Q. Jackson.

Jackson realized his childhood dreams on Monday, announcing his commitment to play football for Arkansas next season.

Jackson (6-2, 188) also holds major FBS offers from Baylor, Houston, Missouri, TCU, and Texas Tech.

Last month, Jackson took home wide receiver MVP honors at the ETSN/APEC Football Recruiting Combine for the second consecutive year. He posted a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, had a broad jump of 113.5 inches, and a vertical jump of 34.5 inches.

Jackson caught 40 passes for 938 yards and 11 touchdowns for Jefferson in 2017. The Bulldogs finished 10-2 and advanced to the area round of the Class 3A Division I playoffs.

He burst onto scene as a sophomore with 41 catches for 1,099 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also was No. 2 in's list of the top 25 recruits in East Texas.

Arkansas competes in the SEC and is entering its first season under coach Chad Morris, who came from SMU. Kurt Traylor, the former Gilmer coach, is the associate head coach for the Razorbacks, who went 4-8 this past season.

Jackson, like all seniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him in December.
