And just like that, Arkansas was back to square one.

ESPNU 150 Watch List running back Jamel James (Katy, Texas/Cinco Ranch) announced late Wednesday that he has decommitted from the Razorbacks. He and athlete Austin Bennett (Manvel, Texas) were Arkansas’ two commitments of the 2013 class, but after hearing about the news of coach Bobby Petrino getting fired Tuesday, James has decided to weigh other options.

“Even though I have decommitted, I still love Arkansas,” James said to followers by way of his Twitter page. “Y’all showed me so much love and respect that.”
