It may have been Derek Johnson's first trip to the University of Arkansas, but he left with a very nice parting gift.
Johnson (6-3, 285), who was of nearly 100 recruits on hand for the Razorbacks' Red-White game and Junior Day on Saturday, now has an offer from the Razorbacks.
"Arkansas is my number one," Johnson said…"It's a pretty nice campus and they have pretty nice facilities. So far the coaches seem like pretty good guys.
A decision for Arkansas soon?
Johnson, who had over 60 tackles and 5 sacks for a 10-2 team last season, has several other schools who have shown interest in with at least three others already offering.
"ASU has offered, Ole Miss and Mississippi State," Johnson said. "But Arkansas is at the top of my list.
When asked about his strengths, his quote was certainly something a coach and fan would love.
"I play hard, I have a motor, I do what it takes to win games," Johnson said.
