One of the top JUCO offensive tackles in the nation, 4-star Jermaine Eluemunor, has committed to Arkansas.
Richard Davenport of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette tweeted on Eluemunor's commitment, citing the offensive tackle's own Twitter handle:

Eluemunor's commitment tweet featured an awesome pic of him in a Razorbacks uniform, which looks like it could have been made on NCAA 14, combined with Photoshop:
WOO PIG SOOIE!!! IM A RAZORBACK! pic.twitter.com/1WlrZreCfM— Jermaine Eluemunor (@TheMainShow_) July 26, 2013
He checks in at 6'6'', 300 pounds, so "huge" was the correct word to use there. He's literally huge.
Arkansas now has 13 commitments and is ranked No. 25 according to the 247Sports team rankings. Eluemunor joins pro-style quarterback Rafe Peavey, offensive tackle Jovan Pruitt and defensive tackle Bijhon Jackson as Arkansas' fourth 4-star commitment, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
The Razorbacks are in the running for two other highly ranked recruits in 4-star defensive tackle Josh Frazier (top five) and 4-star athlete Kevin Shorter (top two), according to 247Sports, so this is a class that could end up getting much better.
Landing a big-time recruit is always a momentum builder, and nothing—outside of winning—attracts elite recruits more than momentum and hype.
Eluemunor is a former UCLA commitment who decommitted from the Bruins this past Wednesday, per his 247Sports timeline.
