Texas four-star CB moves from Michigan State to Arkansas
Just when you think Arkansas Football can’t just have a better 2023 recruiting cycle, they continue to prove they can.
The nation’s No. 6 recruiting class for the 2023 cycle improved on Saturday, landing four-star Texas cornerback Jaylon Braxton.
Braxton received an offer from Arkansas in March which, at the time, was his third offer from an SEC program behind Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Since being offered by Arkansas, Braxton has received seven offers, including one from Michigan State. Braxton then made his official visit to Michigan State on June 3 and signed with the Spartans two weeks later on June 14.
However, despite his commitment to Michigan State, Braxton still made his official visit to Arkansas three days later. That’s when Arkansas started catching heat. After the official visit, Corey Robinson of 247sports gave Arkansas a Crystal Ball sermon to land Braxton.
After receiving the crystal ball, Braxton made another official visit to Miami, then disengaged from Michigan State on July 1. The Razorbacks then landed his commitment on July 9.
Jaylon Braxton is Texas State’s No. 44 prospect for the 2023 cycle and the No. 27 cornerback in the nation according to the 247sports composite rankings. Braxton, a native of Frisco, Texas, is the fourth commitment Arkansas has received from Texas State. He joins DL Kaleb James (Mansfield), EDGE Carson Dean (Carrollton) and S Christian Ford (McKinney).
Braxton’s commitment gives Arkansas 21 for the Class of 2023, seven of which are four-star rated.
