FAYETTEVILLE — Former Morrilton and North Carolina quarterback Jacolby Criswell has committed to Arkansas.

“Excited to be playing in my home state next season. Ready to get to work with the boys!”
At North Carolina, Criswell completed 18 of 31 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Criswell also rushed 20 times for 133 yards and a touchdown.
On Monday, Criswell talked about if he gets the right answers to the questions he has to ask playing for the Razorbacks could very much be in his immediate future.
“I would say yes sir,” Criswell said. “If they answer truthfully and honestly that would be a 100-percent my No. 1 seed.”
On Saturday it appears Criswell got the answers he wanted to his questions. Criswell was a standout at Morrilton. He completed 408 of 650 passes for 5,964 yards, 58 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
