Arkansas WR Jared Cornelius announces plans for 2017
Arkansas WR Jared Cornelius announces Wednesday that he will be back with the Razorbacks for 2017, and had some fun with his announcement.
In a post by Cornelius to Arkansas’ official website, the wideout spends three paragraphs reflecting on his time at UA, looking back on the relationships he’s made and all the opportunities that have come his way.
At that point, Cornelius revealed his surprise:
That being said, I am very excited to say that I will be returning for my senior season.
The return of Cornelius will be a big boost to the Hogs’ offense in 2017. As a junior, Cornelius was the team’s No. 3 receiver behind departing seniors Drew Morgan and Keon Hatcher. Cornelius hauled in 32 catches for 515 yards and 4 touchdowns.
Near the end of his note, Cornelius says he wants to “lead my teammates to achieve something that has never been done here before.”
