Johnson Sets Sight on Offer

Arkansas safety target Avery Johnson will be attending Arkansas' three-day camp that begins June 15.

When Highland (Ark.) High athlete Avery Johnson steps onto the Arkansas campus in seven days, he'll have one thing on his mind.

Johnson, who the Razorbacks are recruiting as a safety, has been an Arkansas fan his entire life.

"I'd like to get an offer," Johnson said. "I have always wanted to be a Razorback. I'd love to play there."

At the camp, which starts June 15, he will work out as a linebacker and a safety the first two days before the coaches decide which to work him at the last day.

The Arkansas camp will be his third in less than a week. Johnson will attend a camp at Memphis on Wednesday and a camp at Oklahoma State on Friday.

He also has plans to go to camps at Arkansas State and Southern Miss, which have both offered him scholarships.

This week will also be his first back at full strength after having a plasma injection in his knee to help heal patella tendinitis.

"I've been out for three weeks," Johnson said. "I wasn't able to do anything the first two weeks and this last week I've been bicycling to get back in shape."
