One of the wildest recruitments of the 2018 recruiting cycle has finally come to an end — Dorian Gerald has committed to Arkansas.
The recruitment of the elite junior college lineman has been all over the map as he originally committed to play for Butch Jones and Tennessee over South Carolina last summer and has since been heavily involved with several SEC teams, including Florida, Arkansas, Ole Miss, and Texas A&M. At times, he’s been favored to land at just about all of them.
Despite those prognostications, Gerald ended up in Fayetteville. The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Gerald ranks as the No. 1 strongside defensive end and the No. 27 overall JUCO prospect in the nation by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
To make his decision, Gerald destroyed an Arkansas cookie cake:
