— Arkansas will know at the start of next month if it is going to land the nation’s top junior college cornerbacks.

Arizona Western’s Keisean Nixon (6-0, 200) announced Sunday that he will choose from among Arkansas, California, Colorado State and Iowa State and will announce his decision on Aug. 1.

Nixon had 34 tackles, 5 interceptions, four passes broken up, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and two tackles for lost yardage last season.

He is a teammate of Arkansas’ 2017 tight end pledge Jeremy Patton (6-6, 248) and like Patton is slated to be a mid-term enrollee with three years to play two.

Nixon has taken an official visit to Oregon State and an unofficial to Iowa State and has plans to an official visit to Colorado State scheduled for July 29.

He has stated he will also take one to Arkansas.

Nixon, who has some 10 offers, has eliminated Oregon State and San Diego State after previously having them in his top six.
