FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas defensive lineman Landon Jackson has earned his first preseason All-America nod, garnering second-team recognition from the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Jackson proved to be one of the nation’s most dominant pass rushers last season, tallying 44 total tackles, including 13.5 tackles for loss, with 6.5 sacks and one pass breakup. The Texarkana, Texas, native set career-highs in tackles (11), tackles for loss (3.5) and sacks (3.5) at Alabama (Oct. 14), recording his first career double-digit tackle game in the breakout performance and claiming SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors.

Jackson, who anchored an Arkansas defense that ranked sixth in the SEC in tackles for loss and sacks, led the Hogs in tackles for loss (13.5) and sacks (6.5) to become the first Razorback defensive lineman since Jake Bequette in 2011 to earn first-team All-SEC honors.
