Fayetteville, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorback football staff is making up for lost time on the 2013 recruiting class by getting several key offers for their 2014 class out while canvassing the nation. On Monday the Hogs offered 2014 running back Jonathan Hilliman.
The Jersey City St. Peter’s Prep star rushed for 1,408 yards and 21 touchdowns on 123 carries for an impressive 11.45 yard per carry average. Hilliman is listed as a three-star prospect by 247Sports with an 87 rating meaning he should be a four-star prospect before long.
The Marauders finished the 2012 season with an 8-2 record seeing Hilliman named a junior All-American running back.
Hilliman, 6’1”, 210 pounds, 4.5 forty-yard dash speed, already has nearly 20 offers from top BCS programs across the nation including Georgia, Miami (FL), Michigan, Oregon, Nebraska, Ohio State, Boston College, and Penn State. He has reportedly taken unofficial visits to Maryland, Rutgers, and Boston College and plans to attend Junior Day at Ohio State.
Hilliman took to Twitter announcing the offer:
Just picked up an offer from Arkansas!
