Hogs in top two for Florida RB

Junior college receiver Jonathan Nance has committed to Arkansas.

Nance, 6-1, 181 pounds, 4.44 of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College told Coach Bret Bielema and receivers coach Michael Smith about his decision.

He chose the Hogs over scholarship offers from Colorado State and Troy while also drawing interest from Florida, Georgia, Arizona State, Iowa State, Memphis and numerous others.

He signed with Southern Miss in 2015 out of high school in Gulfport, Miss, but left after being moved to defensive back.

Nance, who plans to graduate in December, recorded 31 receptions for 400 yards and 3 touchdowns last season. He has three years to play two.

He becomes the 9th commitment for the 2017 class.

The Hogs has also offered receiver Brandon Martin, defensive end Isaiah Buggs and offensive lineman D'Marcus Hayes at the school. Nance said he's going to recruit the three starting today.
